Feature requests
« on: January 04, 2006, 06:10:33 pm »
Hello, dear Code::Blocks developers!

I'm from Russia and my english isn't well, but I hope that you understand me. :)

I use Code::Blocks v1.0rc2 every day and I write the next feature requests(FR).

I take apart my requests for three parts:
1. Easy-to-create FR
2. Medium-to-create FR
3. Hard(may be impossible) FR

and in the end of this post I write small bug list.

Part one - Easy-to-create FR

1. Allow to change line number color and size, for example:



2. Allow to change folding line color and fold "+" symbol size, (see previous screenshot):

3. Allow to change fold gutter color, for example:



4. Allow to change foreground color of selection, for example, when I change foreground color to white:



5. I wish to see line number when I'm scrolling text, for example:



6. When I hold Left Contorl and scroll mouse whell text size changing :-/
May be better do it function as PageUp, PageDown scroll text? For example,
when I hold Left Control and scroll Mouse Whell Up text go up for one page...
(I hope, you understand me)

Part two - Medium-to-create FR

7. Allow to set border color for background color, for example I want to set gray border for mathing brace highlight:
(Use zooming if necessary)



Part three - Hard(may be impossible) FR

8. Sync Edit function(or local refactoring). There is an option in Deplhi 2005 when working on selected block of code
that you can edit repeated words of it. And when you change one repeated word in selection, other words are
automatically changed.



9. Refactoring function (or plugin). A hope you know what it is :)

And I have found the next bugs in Code::Blocks v1.0rc2 for Win32:

1. When I select text block and press right mouse button, my selection disappear and I can't copy/cut text!
fixed
2. Folding bug:
    Step 1. Fold region and set cursor before fold line.

    Step 2. Press enter... and you will see this:

    Step 3. And when I do something I see strange bug, for example:


Thank you.

Hello,

No problem with your english :).


AFAIK, some of your features/bugs have already been added/fixed. Try the latest nightly build (see nightly builds part of forum) and check it. A lot of progress has been done since RC2. If you would like an ANSI build of C::B (nightly builds are UNICODE), then try Ceniza and/or Therion's latest binary snapshot.

Best wishes,
Michael

PS.: If I am not wrong you can post feature request(s) at sourceforge.

You mean the mouse white arrow cursor you get when you go in the region of the line numbers? If yes, I am not sure that you can disable it (I have seen no option).

Yes, I think Lakmus means that one (but let him confirm this). Anyway, it was not fixed or? AFAIK, if someone is really disturbed by it, it could try the patch of 280Z28 (here). From my side it does not disturb me too much.

It is not this: Settings-->Editor-->Gutter and then the color button?

4. No, in "Configure editor" dialogs i can't change foreground color to selection - button is disabled..

Ok, you are right here.
