Navigation Button in Code::Blocks
« on: March 29, 2007, 08:23:12 am »
Hi,

Code::Blocks provides Bookmarks to navigate within a project, but sometimes it is desireable to navigate within different files using a back and forward navigation.
User often step in the editor to search for a call chain.
E.g a function foo calls function bar, then you go to function bar, this function calls another function xyz etc. and then it would be nice to navigate without bookmarks but using previous and next button.
Perhaps the navigation should be per project?

What do you think about that feature.

Bye,

Mario

I like it !  :D

I used it in other editors and I find it very useful occasionnaly.
It is like the previous/next page of web browsers.

Hmm.. Do You use DirectBrain API to read the raw thoughts from my mind?

Hi,

this feature is already implemented in the Browse Tracker plugin. See the documentation for details (http://codeblocks.org/manual.shtml).

Hi,

I'd like to use that feature too, but I haven't found that plugin in revision 4457. It's not listed in the plugins list nor somewhere in the sources.

Hi !

In my opinion, it is partially implemented; I mean keeping browsing file history is nice (Thanks Pecan !) but from your descritption and I what I had understood, the jumps into open files should be added, quite like html browser. Maybe single clicks could be recorded so that not only files but files and position are saved.

Thanks dje for the reply.
Unfortunately importing in rev. 4464 does not work 'out of the box'. I had to recompile the plugin, and I got 2 compiler errors. I got rid of them after replacing
         GetAppWindow()->GetMenuBar();
with
         GetAppFrame()->GetMenuBar();.

After that everything went OK.
