Line numbers in desktop editor

Hi,

as I have some very large applications it would be very helpful if there were line numbers in front of each line. I know that the line of the current cusorposition is shown at the bottom of the editor, but if you are searching for a special line (or program position) you have to scroll, click a line, look at the line number, scroll again...
As an alternative a new "goto line" dialog (e.g. with a shortcut STRG+G) will do.

yes, this would be usefull. i have compiled a programm and it runs
well on the PC. but on the device i have got an error. shurly i can
run it in interpreted modus on the device, but i always must copy
my sourcefile to the device.

It doesn't work for me because the french VB4 runtime (vb6fr.dll) is used to run it.

Hi,
Nice of you to include the dll, but i can register it and although the dll is in the same folder as the exec, it still can't "find" it!!!
BTW: what are the new features?

Debugging in text files

When the program is using text files as additional source and there is a bug in compilation, you do not know where the problematic line is because it is in the text file and there are no line numbers (I could not run this listing program even when the dll was present).
Also, the names of the subroutines that are in the text file are not shown on the right like those which are in the b4ppc editor.

It is not relevant to the thread, but David I suggest you not to use e-mail as signature, you will help to increase spam, as bots are always searching...

This only happens if you write directly into the text file....
If you do like I do, I write the code in the designer and if it works as I want, then I cut it to the text file, Both Subs names AND Error trapping Works!!

I do like you, and when the bug is traced by the compiler I get a sub name which I have to find by manual search in the file, and a line number which I don't know how to locate ! The sub names disappear from the b4p editor after I cut them to the text file.
