Present occlusion highlight as in Java Eclipse IDE?
« on: February 09, 2008, 09:20:16 am »
Hello all! CodeBlocks best ide for C/C++ developing, but i also working with JavaEE in Eclipse IDE and his "occlusion highlight" very powerfull feature. This feature decrease number fool error in code, time on writing code also decreesed and allow more easy analyze enemy code. CodeBlocks developers planned realize this feature?

We plan a lot of features. But for this to work we first need a better design of the parser (also for CC). Besides there are some other (more important) things to be implemented, too. Keep in mind that Eclipse has by far more developers and a much stronger community and longer history than C::B. What you are asking for requires quite some time, so it will not happen anytime soon. Sorry, for that.
With regards, Morten.

What's "occlusion highlight", and what's "enemy code"?   Do they use Code::Blocks in the NSA? :)

Nice joke about NSA!!! No. In Ukrainian NSA dont present or i dont know it.

Sorry for my english level. I mean a reviewing code in big projects, when project team split in few parts and his placed in distanced territories - all is not have neccessary time to discusing interested pieces of code.

"Occlusion highlight" - when you mark (with mouse double click) some stuff (variable name, function name ...) and all same pieces (in current scope) make highlighted.

What's "occlusion highlight"
Pretty neat feature, you select e.g. a member variable and all instances are highlighted. You select a method (at declaration or or any place this method is used) and all occurrences are highlighted. There is far more, like it highlights stuff like missing semi-colons, it highlights if a method is overloaded or not, let's you jump to the overloaded method etc...

That's one of the things I want to achieve with the project I'm working on, but it'll take time. It's then a planned feature :)

OK, I'll just take the "good intention" :P

Actually, that "error checking" Eclipse does so nicely in Java also inspired me to develop this project. The thing is: when I say it'll take time, I really mean it. I've been working on it for 3 weeks now, and it hasn't been a full-time work so far.

Indeed. I am working with Eclipse very often at work, too (the simple excuse why I can't use C::B is that it's a Java project). It has a *very* strong and powerful content/syntax/grammatic/... analyser. It's amazing what information you get that help you in development...
