How do you keeping track of your CML code?
#1
I have a ton of CML "files" and I'm finding I can't remember what CML file modifies a variable driver. (as well as other things, but this is an example).

How are people keeping track of this stuff? I can't debug something I can't find because I can't search through and find something like "WriteBoolField(moniker".

Anyone else find a solution to this? Anyone else have this problem? It's a little maddening / insanity.

Maybe there is a dump to txt file feature?

I don't write enough code ever to need an IDE but it seems I really need one here.

You can export the text if you want. If you right click on the source editor, one of the options is to export the file to text.

You could also I guess make an external cheat sheet documentation file where you track what's where.

I don't mean in detail of course, but an overview of each class and what they do. Break them down into reusable, understandable chunks and document them in terms of what goes in, what comes out, and side effects they have. That's fairly standard software procedure.

if you are talking about finding it in the IDE, then I (and many others) use Crimson editor where there is a great search function.

What I find I have the most trouble with is the CML reference on the web site. I know I want a function, but I don't know what class it is in and I can't search all functions (same for a driver - put them all there in alphabetical order so I can search ).

Would it be hard to do a pdf dump of the whole CML reference for off-line use (I don't code on-line much - actually, I am not on-line much at all because of the crappy deal I get with internet)

Well the whole help thing will be replaced in 5.0, and put into a locally installed HTML5 based setup that will be integrated into the Admin tool. Here is the thread where I showed an early preview of the idea:

It'll have an index presumably an ability to search that index to reduce the number of items to check.
