Well,

Nearly six months later, I have more or less completed what I call Phase 1 of my editor program - I will release it later this week for you all to have a look at.

Please see attached screen shot.

The next phase will include looking at opening multiple files, just like we can in the IWB editor.

So I am wondering what thoughts / views you all might have on this...

There are several things that jump to mind:

1. Just open another copy of the editor program.
2. Have some tabs / buttons like the IWB editor for loading files on click
3. Load and add to a hidden multi edit control

That's just off the top of my head.

Does anyone have any views / suggestions on this?

It would be nice to hear them.

Thanks,
Andy.

Andy,

I prefer tabs myself. I am often working on a program, and have others opened ready to look at for reference or pinch some of the code. Makes it easier

I agree with Brian, tabs are much nicer.

Bill

PS, it looks really nice, good work.
When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.

Thanks guys,

Tabs it is then.

Thought that might be the answer so I have already begun work on them and found a fast way to switch from one file to another.

Will post the editor program later in the week.

Thanks Bill for the encouragement!

Andy.
