Enable CC on file extensions
« on: January 03, 2012, 02:59:21 am »
Is their a setting somewhere to tell the CodeCompletion plugin to run on file extensions other than the registered C/C++ ones?

I would like to add *.java files - Java is close enough to C++ that I find CC's suggestions are able to be helpful (when I already have Code::Blocks open and do not want to launch Eclipse).

(P.S. Java lexer available.)

Look at Token.cpp

Code: [Select]
CCFileType CCFileTypeOf(const wxString& filename)
{
    const wxString file = filename.AfterLast(wxFILE_SEP_PATH).Lower();
    const int pos = file.Find(_T('.'), true);
    wxString ext;
    if (pos != wxNOT_FOUND)
        ext = file.SubString(pos + 1, file.Len());

    if (   ext.IsEmpty()
        || ext == _T("h")
        || ext == _T("hpp")
        || ext == _T("tcc")
        || ext == _T("xpm") )
    {
        return ccftHeader;
    }
    else if (   ext == _T("cpp")
             || ext == _T("c")
             || ext == _T("cxx")
             || ext == _T("cc")
             || ext == _T("c++") )
    {
        return ccftSource;
    }
    else
        return ccftOther;
}

So, you can add the java file extension here.

The best way is that it can have a wxTextCtrl in the CC setting dialog.

PS: I'm not sure our CC's parser can correctly parse java source files.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

That's what I played around with recently. The outcome is attached... That's how it should look like (implementation is still not complete due to a lack of time).

In your new design, I found in the new page(C/C++ parser adv), you have:

Keyword sets to additionally include:

But this I think is belong to "code completion" page, not the parser page.

True, I actually had in mind to save space... I'll change it.

Implemented in trunk.

You are right that it cannot really understand it, but for simple/quick matters in which it is not worth my time to open a different program, CC works well enough to be useful.

Implemented in trunk.
Thank you, I will be sure to try it.

A related question: is there any structure in place that I can use to create "on demand" code completion (similar to being able to select the lexer with Edit->Highlight mode)?

I just realized I forgot to tag the category when I submitted the Java lexer patch.

Is there a way I can add it to the appropriate category?  (I am relatively new to BerliOS, so I am unsure if I am simply missing the button.)

I've set the category to Lexer, is this the correct one?
Probably only developers can change the 'advanced' settings of patches, bugs and features.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

Yes, that is the one; thank you.  (You have saved me from being bugged at seeing something out of place :).)

OK.

No. And I think it wouldn't really make sense. However, If you change the CC options, usually the project(s) is(are re-scanned.

One question:
How did you move items from one panel to another.

You just select one, then ctrl+X(cut), then ctrl+V(paste) to another panel?

As we can't not multiply select many items, so even cut/paste every items in "Keyword sets to additionally include" are quite annoying.  :)

If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

No, sure not. You can copy/paste by container, so e.g. by wxStaticBoxSizer.
