New project wizard - remove files from project
« on: May 24, 2017, 09:09:45 am »
Hi guys,
I want to add a new project wizard. The basic things works, I have now a project wizard and all files in my "files" directory will be copied into the project directory (like I want). The problem is: I want to remove some files from the project after importing it. There is the function "GetFilesDir" which gives the directory of all files and add ALL these files to the project. But in my directory structure there are also some not to compile files (like examples). How can I remove these files in the squirrel script?

Thanks for help!

The API docs are here: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Scripting_commands
But I don't see anything useful there. :(

all functions to create and delete files?

I see the deleting files from disk functions. But is this removing the files also from project? At the end I want remove these files only from project, so the user using the wizard can look at the examples.

You can try ProjectFile::RemoveBuildTarget, but I'm not sure it will work.

I tried it ;) And it does not work, I have no idea for what this is...
But I have a solution which work for me:

Code: [Select]

if ((project.GetFile(i).relativeFilename.Matches(_T("FatFS/doc*"))) || (project.GetFile(i).relativeFilename.Matches(_T("FatFS/src/option*"))))
{
project.GetFile(i).compile = false;
project.GetFile(i).link = false;
}
I do it like this and it compiles and links...
The documentation is not very helpful...

I mean this site
http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Scripting_commands

But at the moment I don't know how to the things better, but examples always help.
How can I contribute to the documentation?

The forum log in should be the same as on the wiki. If not, you may have to send a pm to jens so he can add you to the wiki user list

Just to come back to your question: You want to remove files from the codeblocks project?
Why do you don't use the function cbProject::RemoveFile function?
You can iterate through the project file and check the relative filename and remove the wrong files....

Or do you want only to not compile this files, but still let them in the project? If that is what you want, i think you can set ProjectFile::compile to false
