Great, very useful.

Try-Catch-End Try

and I'm thinking to other blocks, otherwise Erel could be bored :D


[P.S. #Region - #End Region]


I would insert also "Log(LastException.Message)" in the Catch section (the developer can easily delete it).

Select Case - End Select

Do While - Loop



Too bad that there is the possibility of publishing the "Wish"; as work, I would like to make the prompter (well-paid :D). In fact, the best job possible is the critic!



Adding automatically closing brackets and quotes?
One recent feature is Activity_LoadLayout("HereABalFileName. I would add the brackets.
Same, for example, when the user writes "Log(, I would add ) and set the cursor after the first parenthesis.


Stop, I should work, not flooding this thread :)

Yes, it is a feature implemented for the next version of B4A.

It also completes the other types of blocks (except of #region and #if which are treated differently by the parser).

I would insert also "Log(LastException.Message)" in the Catch section (the developer can easily delete it).
Good idea.

will this be extended to next versions of B4J and B4I too (considering the underlying IDE is the same)?

i would guess YES as the three share the same base IDE as far as i know of.
That's correct.

@Erel please share more new features
During the development of B4i v2.0 and B4J v3.50 many small improvements and bug fixes were made. Therefore I want to release the next B4A version quite soon.
The major new feature is the starter service (https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/new-feature-starter-service.56923/). This is an important feature that makes it much easier to correctly handle the activities and services life-cycle.

Do you know that great feature...
when you write "Sub " + TAB and the cursors waits for the "event name"?

Imagine:
you write a call to a sub which requires n parameters; the editor creates
(,,,) and the cursor moves in the right positions after your Tab.

Hard to implement, I know, but...!

(I hope I have explained well enough. If not, be prepared to study Italian :p)

This looks like a perfect implementation of a wish list I submitted a while back.

This is not the right place, as usual (you should be used to it, Erel :D) but I would like to know why you have not implemented one of the "Wish" which I think is very useful: the management of code snippets. Is it more complicated than I imagine? (this, in fact, may be one reason: often I think that develop a certain sw is easy and then I meet a thousand small obstacles).
