How to work with Built-in Editor
The Built-in Editor is your main tool in the development process. The Welkin Suite's Editor provides you with a lot of handy features for editing the code, which will make your work much more easier and efficient. The IDE offers you different editors for different metadata types, but you won't feel any discomfort switching between them: the editor's window remains the same. In addition, all The Welkin Suite's text editors provide Code Assistance functionality.
Basic editor's features
All the editors support the main editing options as well as the advanced editing features:
- the standard commands Cut, Copy and Paste (from the context menu or pressing the standard hotkeys Ctrl+X, Ctrl+С, Ctrl+V),
- the multiple commands Undo and Redo (using the buttons on the toolbar or pressing the standard hotkeys Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Y),
- automatic error and warning marks,
- different syntax highlighting for different languages,
- line numbers on the left margin of the editor,
- Zoom — a drop-down list with a percentage of view (also can be done by Ctrl+ a mouse wheel).
In the context menu of the file's tab in the code editor you can find a lot of useful features for quick closing the documents:
- Close — closes the current document (also can be done by the Ctrl+F4 hotkey),
- Clos All Documents — closes all the opened documents,
- Close All But This — closes all the opened documents except the current one,
- Close All *.[type] Files — closes all the documents of the same type as the current document (classes, pagrs, etc.).
You can customize any editor in TWS as you want. To do so, go to the Options Menu:
Main Menu ⇒ Tools ⇒ Options… ⇒ Text Editor ⇒ All Languages.
