> Hi All,
> Thanks for your comments..
> I want your suggestions and helps the following specific areas...
>
> 1) Break-Points.
> -------------------
> Since this editor is a fully newly implemented window, I wonder how I will manage break-points.
> I am able to create a margin area for break-ponts and mark those lines (with a read/other colored round shape. But when I run the prg I need to internally add those marked lines to VFP native break-points.
> if someone can do a little analyzing on this topic and share with me, it would be a great help for me.
> (VFP stores Break points in FOXUSER.DBF, but seems like, VFP will keep break-ponits in memory and update FOXUSER when we exit VFP.)
>
> 2) PRG editor
> ------------------
> My current design is like, when you open a PRG file, it will show a treeview with all functions, classes in that PRG file(something like VFP native Doc View, Please refer that screen shot). And when you double click on a treeview node, it will open specific function/method/Events in multi-tabbed editor as a new tab. (But in .NET when you edit a file, all functions/classes will be shown in same Tab)
> Should I proceed with the same way(one method per tab) or should I re-design like .NET editor (one PRG per tab)?
>
> 3) Class Designer
> -----------------------
> Still I don't have a good idea about how new class designer should look like. Please share me if you have any suggestions about how to improve current class designer(Navigation of methods and all)
>
> 4) In-built crystal report designer
> -------------------------------------
> Basic goal is, a inbuilt visual designer for Crystal reports. When I save the report, this designer will automatically generated a code file for crystal report.
> (I am not familiar with crystal reports. I have downloaded lot of documents about crystal reports automation.
> please let me know your feedback)
>
> Thanks & regards

See the attached JPGs for a view of editors that I wrote for replacement of the internal VFP editors (visual classes, forms, menus, and programs). This shows the visual class editor. I have a treeview on the left that gives all classes and the associated objects for edit.

You can also simultaneously edit a form or class and also be able to edit a class that is used/referenced in the form/class being edited. The editors are a complete replacement of the VFP editors. I have all the features that you listed with the exception of the code folding. I do provide highlighting of the code blocks (beginning of IF to ENDIF, etc.) and have extended the intellisense to include tables, local variables, and the full path reconstruction when using nested WITH statements.

The editors are fully functional -- there are versions that are more than a year old on the Universal Thread; I have greatly enhanced those and fixed numerous bugs but have not released the updates but to a few. I have been using these editors myself in my normal work trying to get rid of all bugs -- been now using for quite some time without any problems.
