Coming soon a new IDE: FineLineIDE!

http://www.norm-online.net/2010-12-11v01 FL PicBasicPro screenshot.bmp

Features include:
Bracket lines linking If-Endif, For-Next etc.
Tabbed explorer so that the current line indicator is always visible for navigation as is the FineLineIDE theme.
Skins included with additional downloadable.
Two FineLineIDE’s can be opened at once.
FL saves a recovery file every 30 seconds and prompt’s to restore on restart if improper shutdown or crash.
FineLineIDE works with both Proton and PicBasicPro.
FineLineIDE defines (currently used in PicBasicPro) establish in-code setting such as:
Device: ‘< FL_PIC18F452 >‘ First valid PIC found within the first 200 lines will highlight and set device.
Compiler: ‘< FL_PBPW >’ or ‘< FL_PBPL >’
Assembler: ‘< FL_MPASM >‘ or ‘< FL_PM >’
NOTE: THE WEB REMOVES THE ABOVE < AND > UNLESS I ADD A SPACE.
IN USE REMOVE ABOVE SPACES IN FL DEFINES.

In PicBasicPro setting FL will prompt on compile if there are improper setting including PBPW or PBPL and PM or MPASM.

FineLineIDE is provided free and is under continued development with several new features planned in the future such as code folding and auto code indent/formatting.

See FineLineIDE Demo Video. (http://www.norm-online.net/FineLineIDE.php)

WOOHOO!!!!!
That is going to be nice!!!
It keeps getting better and better!
Thanks Norm :)

Nice :)!! I like the "Bracket colored lines linking If-Endif, For-Next etc" feature. This feature would make the code a lot easier to read. Also, the current line indicator would be very helpful.

Hi Norm,
That looks fantastic! The bracketing is going to be real help.
I hate doing this but have you considered some kind of code folding? That's one thing I miss a lot in MCSP when working on larger projects.

Norm , I just downloaded your latest version and I think it needs a bit more work. I use TAB's for my indenting and when edited with MCSP it looks as it should. When the same program is loaded into your latest version, it seems to get confused about the tab spacing and also seems to get confused about where to put the connecting lines to the left side of the screen. There are places where multiple connections are all covered up by the same line... If you can give me your email address I will send you the some screen shots...

FL requires an indent to allow room to draw to left of text.
See how finelines draw to left of "SensorError:" label in post #1.
Try a select all and indent one step.

I will look into the tabs replacement width issue.

Hi,

I've just downloaded and "installed" the IDE - went through the config process of pointing the IDE at the installation folders for MPSAM, PBP etc and then loaded up one of my old programs. The IDE responded with a pop up about converting tabs or something and then displayed the code.

A lot of the coloured brackets shown in your example were bunched up against the far left of the code window, so the "importation" didn't work for me. I tried compiling and each time I got an error about an invalid path statement, for either PBP or MPSAM. It seemed as if the IDE had lost it's settings, even though the INI files show the path statements to where the EXE's are



[PicBasicPro]
Use MPASM=1
Use PBPL=0
Compiler Path=C:\PBP2.60\PBP.EXE
Assembly Path=*:\
IDE Path=C:\Program Files\Mecanique\MCS\CodeStudio.exe
[Proton]
Compiler Path=*:\
IDE Path=*:\
[Programmer]
Name0=
Name1=PICkit2 3.3 volt
Name2=PICkit3
Name3=EasyPic5
Name4=melabs U2 Programmer
Location0=
Location1=Browse to *\pk2cmd.exe
Location2=Browse to *\pk3cmd.exe
Location3=C:\Program Files\Mikroelektronika\PICFLASH-mikroICD\PICFLASH.exe
Location4=Browse to *\meProg.exe
Parameter0=


I think I've set all the parameters up, to use my easypic5 board, MPSAM and PBP which is my current set up with MCS, but could be wrong. I did try the automatic scan as well for each option and if didn't find the exe's on some occasions and I used the manual browse option

EDIT:

Ignore that..... have found out where I was going wrong - can now compile OK !!! - USER ERROR ON THIS OCCASION !!!

In the left column it's possible to select things like labels, variables, includes etc, and an option for none. Would it be possible to have an option for all, in the same way MCS does.

Ive also noticed that when a file is opened in FL it changes the text of the commands. For example



IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) > alarmhigh(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 1 then AlarmPin = 1
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) > alarmhigh(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 0 then AlarmPin = 0
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) <= alarmhigh(pid_Channel) then AlarmPin = 0
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) <= alarmlow(pid_Channel) then AlarmPin = 0
if Temperatures(pid_Channel) < alarmlow(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 1 then AlarmPin = 1
if Temperatures(pid_Channel) < alarmlow(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 0 then AlarmPin = 0


Note the lower case "if" in the last two lines. I then use the option to open in MCS and looked at the same set of lines



IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) > alarmhigh(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 1 then AlarmPin = 1
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) > alarmhigh(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 0 then AlarmPin = 0
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) <= alarmhigh(pid_Channel) then AlarmPin = 0
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) <= alarmlow(pid_Channel) then AlarmPin = 0
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) < alarmlow(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 1 then AlarmPin = 1
IF Temperatures(pid_Channel) < alarmlow(pid_Channel) and Alarm = 0 then AlarmPin = 0


Formatting was correct....

mackrackit

Are you relying on the program to do the capitalization? Or are you typing IF.

Files saved in MCS aren't saving the "IF" etc uppercase format.
I will add a look through for case on open in FL.

Dave, I was just opening an existing pbp code which already contained the statements. If I select the button to open in the original IDE (MCS) the same statements are capitalised - in FL half are, half are not !

Don't get me wrong - not knocking FL - just filtering back some observations.

Did not think you were knocking FL.

The same thing with upper/lower case I bet will happen if you open the same code in MPLAB. At least it does for me if I depend on MCS to apply upper case to key words. Just wondering if that was your case too...

NEW v1.0.0.4
Added a format all button for keywords (case).
User discretion required a button as both Proton and PicBasic files could be open with FL not certain of which style to use.
Formatting would be recommended when opening a file edited in MicroCode Studio as it saves "as typed" but appears formatted.
Proton IDE has a recommended option to "Commit formatting changes to source code" which would then require no FL format button press.
Formatting does all compiler keywords as well as variables, constants, aliases, labels, macros, and data labels.

Your description of the v1.0.0.4 change confuses me, Norm.....I downloaded the latest version and I can't figure out which button is the new "Format All" button you refer to. Is it the button labeled "if-IF" ?

I also endorse a suggestion I saw on the forum to add an "All" option in the Pull Down list for Includes, Constants, Variables, Defines, Variables, Alias & Modifiers, and Labels. MCS has this and it is sometimes very useful to not have to switch back and forth between the options.

Another suggestion...with the lack of a User Manual some button context help would be useful or a pop-up window on cursor flyover of the button to explain its use.

Norm, I cut/pasted some of Mackrackit's code for a ConnectOne WiFi module into FineLine and see something I can't figure out as shown in this code snippet:


DIP:
IF !ADR[1] AND !ADR[1] AND !ADR[2] AND !ADR[3]THEN SEROUT2 PORTC.3,16780,[" NOT "]
SEROUT2 PORTC.3,16780,[" CONNECTED ",$d,$a]
SEROUT2 PORTC.3,16780,["ADR - " ,DEC3 ADR[0],".",DEC3 ADR[1],".",DEC3 ADR[2],".",DEC3 ADR[3],$d,$a] PAUSE 1000
RETURN

The actual code listing in FineLine shows a red "0" at the beginning of the IF statement line. I tried to delete it and it won't delete. What is this red "0" signifying or trying to tell me?

Yes the "if-IF" button is "Format All".

The reason for separating the Explorer types is a lot less scrolling.
When "showing all" most are hidden.
The next version of FL however replaces the Explorer drop down box with a one click "radio button" for a fast change of display type as displayed below.

On my PC a hover over the "if-If" button displays a yellow "Format keywords for PicBasicPro".

The red "O" is for orphan.
FineLine is telling you a corresponding Endif is missing.
See screenshot in previous post.

Norm,
In your screenshot the ENDIF is missing but in the code snippet Jellis posted it's not missing since the IF statement is a "one-liner"

IF !ADR[1] AND !ADR[1] AND !ADR[2] AND !ADR[3]THEN SEROUT2 PORTC.3,16780,[" NOT "]

A workaround is to keep a space in front of the "Then".

Norm, I really like FL but discovered one thing that I can't figure out how to do. I presumed since EasyPIC6 is one of the Programmer Options in FL that I could use it to program a PBPro application onto a PIC18F4550 in my EasyPic6 and run the application. I also presumed that selecting the EasyPIC6 as the programmer was as simple as going to its tab in the Programmer options, making sure it was setup correctly and then clicking OK. However I cannot get FL to target the EasyPic6 FLASH programmer by this setup method.....it keeps launching PICKIT2 as the programmer, even though I thought I had switched to the FLASH on EASYPIC6 via the otpions.

How do I select any of the specific programmer options to operate with FL?

Just found the answer to my own question while poking around in FL application screen. I found the window selector to the left of the green COMPILE pushbutton which allows the user to select which of the programmers that are setup in the OPTIONS. Worked like a charm! Sorry for the previous post. A user manual would have prevented my question.

Norm, I encountered a problem with FL not being able to compile the ReEnterPBP-18.bas version 1.4 which was an INCLUDE in one of my application codes.

Has anyone else had this problem with ReEnterPBP-18.bas ??

John Ellis

It looks like the compiler is indicating an error which is PBP not FL IDE.
Is the result the same with MicrocodeStudio IDE?

Is it possible to add compatability with Asix UP Presto programmer http://tools.asix.net/prg_presto.htm

Is it possible to add compatability with Asix UP Presto programmer http://tools.asix.net/prg_presto.htm

Tim.

From "Using UP from the command line" under "Tips and tricks" in the help section of the UP software program.

Using UP from the command line
The program itself ensures to be run in a single instance. If there is another instance being run, the command line parameters are handed over to the already running instance to be executed.

Parameter overview
up.exe [{/ask | /q}] [{/e eeprom_file.hex | [/noe]}] [{/p | [/pdiff] | [/o]} file.hex | file.ppr] [/eeonly] [/part part_name] [/erase] [/w[nd] up_window_class] [/cfg ] [/devid ] [/blank ] [/verify file] [/s programmer_SN]

Legend:
The text in bold is to be put on the command line as is.
The text in italic is to be replaced by real parameter, e.g. file_name is to be replaced by real name of the file to be opened.

Text in curly brackets separated by | (pipes) represents a single choice from the listed items. e.g. { A | B } means "choose just one of A or B".
Text in [braces] represents optional parameter which can be used, but can also be omitted.

/ask Ask. To be used with /p. If the parameter is used, the program always prompts the user whether to program the part, even if this was disabled in the Settings of the program. The confirmation dialog also shows selected part type.
/q /quiet Quiet mode. In this mode the program does not require any user intervention, but rather silently returns to an error code instead of displaying a dialog. See return error codes.
/e file EEPROM file. Name of a file containing EEPROM data. If the name contains spaces, it is necessary to enclose it by quotes. This parameter can be used together with /o or /p parameter only.
/noe No EEPROM. Causes the program to skip EEPROM programming. If used with the MSP430 devices, the program skip all operations with the information memory.
/p file Program. Programs given file to code memory. If the name contains spaces, it is necessary to enclose it by quotes.
/pdiff file Program differentially. Programs given file. If the name contains spaces, it is necessary to enclose it by quotes.
/o file Open. File with given name will be opened. Optional parameter. If the name contains spaces, it is necessary to enclose it by quotes.
/eeonly The programmer will do the selected operation for EEPROM memory only, with MSP430 for Information memory only.
/part name Selects the specified part in the UP.
/erase The part will be erased.
/wnd class name Select another window class name. Using this parameter you can open more than one instance of program UP. Each instance must have unique window class name.
/cfg If this parameter is used together with /p parameter, only configuration memory is programmed. It's useful for example for AVR devices programming, because the user can configure the chip for faster oscillator first and then to program it much faster.
/devid If this parameter is used together with /p parameter, only the Device ID of the chip is checked.
/blank The program will do Blank Check of the chip.
/verify file Does the part verification.
/s programmer_SN This parameter allows to select the programmer in accordance with its serial number. The serial number can be entered as it is displayed in the UP or printed on the programmer, e.g.016709 or A6016709.
When working on several different projects it is likely that the program is set to use a part or programmer other than the one the user assumed. In such case using project files (.PPR), which contain all necessary settings including the file path, is strongly recommended.

Opening a file
up.exe file name

up.exe file.hex
up.exe "C:\My Documents\Recent Projects\PIC\My latest project\flasher.hex"

Programming the part
up.exe /p file name
up.exe /p file.hex
up.exe /p "C:\My Documents\Recent Projects\PIC\My latest project\flasher.hex"

Return error codes
0 - No errors.
1 - File error, e.g. file not found, unrecognized file format.
2 - Device error. Communication test failed, error in communication.
3 - Programming preparation error, e.g. failed to erase part.
4 - Programming error.
5 - Verification failed.
6 - User interaction needed.
7 - Device ID error.This is a start point, others may be helpful.

Norm, here are two suggested changes to your next version of FL...MCS already does this and it is handy:
1) Put a link in the HELP menu to the forum at http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/forum.php
2) Put a link in the HELP menu to your FL URL at http://www.norm-online.net/FineLineIDE.php

Having these readily available while using the IDE saves the time of opening up a browser and entering these URLs when you are trying to debug code in the FL editor.

I really like using FL. I am especially thankful for the way you implemented the interface to the EasyPIC6 so that I can use the following chain automatically from FL to program code into my EasyPIC6: FL editor, MSASM assembler, PBPro compiler, MikroFLASH programmer. This saves so much time and makes the coding/programming process a piece of cake with an EasyPIC6. Good job!

Hi Norm,
Thanks for that, I hadn't spotted the setups were configurable. However, I cannot get FL to use any programmer except the first one in the list. So I changed the first one to the Presto.

If UP is allready open with the correct device allready selected, the filename is picked up and performs an erase, programme and verification fine. (command line switches field empty). If I add /part $target-device$ it doesn't change to the selected device as if its ignoring the switch. The filename is picked up without any switch options!

If UP is not open, a popup window opens and asks for the device type. If I enter the device, UP will only blank check without erasing or programming the part. All switch options are ignored.

Is there an option to not convert tabs to spaces? I like working with tabs and would like to continue so.

STOP PRESS.
Having closed FL and re-opening, I now get the error message "no previous picbasic pro programming" and closes the session when attempting programming.

Any suggestions?
(WIN XP pro)

Tim.

Just a guess but try /part target-device
Keep trying variations.

Tabs don't work well with FL as each tab width is different depending on the line above indentation.
This makes it much slower to determine the start point for drawing the FineLine if-endif brackets.
The tab key will still work in FL however it will write/save in spaces rather than a variable width tab.
I'll try a line by line tab width measurement for the next version as an option however to see if it is feasible.

"no previous picbasicpro programming" is a message displayed when pressing the Program Only button before having first compiled.
Try compile and program first.

That would be a function of the compiler (PBP) not the editor (FL).
Unless it's a '<FL_xxxxx>' comment command all switches are for the compiler.

NAH, easy solution when using MPASM, add the following line at the top of your code.

@ ERRORLEVEL -306 ; supress code boundary message
It is just a warning, I guess the function in MCSP just ignore it when it happen. So yeah, it could be a feature of FineLine. Just parse the begining of the message, analyze it, ignore it... and you're done

On compile button press the IDE saves your code to it's file and passes the file path to PBP.exe to compile to an assembly file.
As a rule the IDE doesn't fiddle with the code as it wouldn't reopen the same if the IDE was closed after a compile.
Thinking out loud I suppose the IDE on compile could add the line "@ ERRORLEVEL -306 ; suppress code boundary message" to file to be compiled and re save the original after compile is complete but their really is no reason to do so.
Another way would be if FL were to simply not report a specific compiler warning however again no reason to do so as adding Mr E's line of code is the intended method.

Hi, I really like FL. I have few suggestion...
First I think you should add UPCASE for reserved words.
Second, it would be nice to make user function...
For example:
Function Asd(x var byte, y var byte) as byte
code
Endfunction
Then when you want to compile FL just generate something like this on top of code
goto over_funcions
asd var byte:x var byte:y var byte

LabelASD:

code
return
over_funcions:
and then if you use code like
variable =asd(1,2)
FL just replace that line with this
x=1 ' first string in bracket
y=2 ' second string etc
Call LabelASD
variable =asd
What do you think about it?
I really do not know why it was not done in pbp3, it's quite simply...

First compatibility with PBP3.
Then my goal is code collapse and auto indent or code formatting.
Functions should be the job of the compiler.
Even if it could be done adding functions specific to FL would make for code incompatibilities.
Interesting nevertheless.

5971Norm, I am having a problem using FL v1.0.0.4 with PicKit2 programmer. It works fine with EasyPic6/PicFlash programmer, but I had to reprogram a device in the field using my laptop with PicKit2. I am using PicKit2 v2 and PBP 2.6 with MPASM assembler. I am somewhat confused by the FL Programmer Options as shown in the attached image where it shows an option for "PicKit2 5.0 volt" and an option for "PicKit2 3.3 volt", as if there are two different PicKit2 products...one for each programming voltage. Yet the PicKit2 I have leaves the selection of the programming voltage to a selectable tool in the PicKit2 screen, so I don't know which option to use with my PicKit2 v2. Can you please clarify what these two FL options for PicKit2 are really saying and which one to use with PicKit2 version 2?

I also notice that the browser default for the" PicKit2 5.0 volt" option points to a file at "Browse to *\pk2cmd.exe". Yet I find no file by that name in my PicKit2 installation. The .exe file normally used in my installation for PicKit2 from Microchip is "PICkit2V2.exe". I tried to use the browser to select this one in the FL option and it didn't work with FL. What are the .exe file names that should be used for either the PicKit2 5.0 volt option or the PicKit2 3.3 volt option in FL??

Goto PICkit 2 Development Programmer/Debugger (http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en023805) and down load the command line version PK2CMD v1.2

The *\ signifies a wildcard before the pk2cmd.exe
An "-A3.3" without the quotes in the command line signifies 3.3 volts other wise will default to 5.
Your PICkit2 tabs should look like the following:

Thanks, Norm. That solved my problem of getting the PicKit2 to work with FL.
However, I notice a new anomaly I don't know how to interpret. After each use of FL to program via the PicKit2, a message appears in PicKit2 in yellow after the programming is complete saying that I have to dowload a new OS for PicKit2. However, if I close PicKit2 and start over with another programming action it works fine with the OS I have. This never has happened before in my use of my OS version of PicKit2.
Is there something in the cmd file that checks your version of PicKit2 OS and tells you to update? Do I really need to? The version I am satisfied using and I hesitate to upgrade because evertime I have ever upgraded to anything from Microchip I spend the next week trying to resolve all the incompatibilities.

Norm,
I just installed my PBP3 upgrade today, and hence also needed to download/insstall FLIDE v1.6.0.0 to have PBP3 compatibility. I copied over the FineLineIDE.ini, CoolbarPositions and Skins from my previous v1.5.0.0. I then checked all the options to make sure they copied over, which it appeared they did. However, I am now having problems.
1) When I attempt to compile a program that always compiled/assembled OK before, I now get the error as shown in the attached screen snapshot file, FLI1_6_0_0.pdf.
I checked for the file name that is mentioned with an .ERR extension and it is located in the same folder as where the .pbp file is that I attempted to compile. So I don't understand why it is saying it can't find the file and is giving me this error that prevents compile/assembly.

Can you please advise me how to solve this problem?

Do a check to be sure the path in the "Did not find file" message is exactly the same as the file path in the same folder as where the .pbp file is.

FL is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
It's somewhat like word is compared to notepad only its for programming.
The same compiler is used with FL as is with Microcode Studio.

I developed FL because I wanted additional features such as If-Endif code bracketing, color background, and presently undergoing testing is code folding and auto-indent.
Soon you may never indent another line and keep only the current active areas of code unfolded for a compact display of your code.

HenrikOlsson
- 8th May 2012, 21:02
c_moore,
It's always been a software debugger. With that I mean that a call to a software routine is performed between each PBP command, much like OnInterrupt works. It does use the PIC hardware USART to communicate with the PC but that takes up firmware space and execution cycles.

Norm,
I'm afraid I don't know the details about how the hardware debugger works but I'd guess all the files needed are available since it IS possible to debug at the source level from within MPLAB. I think it uses the .coff file generated at compile/assembly time but I don't know what else is needed.

Hi Norm,

I tested your latest version, but for some reason include files refuse to open. No matter if I use relative or full path to file locations.

In MicroCode Studio environment, include files are working OK.

Basically main program consist of several include files and this was one of them. Same thing with all the other include files, cannot open them.

INCLUDE "..\incl\Variables_v0_1.pbp"
It does not help if I change full path, c:\...
No problems to compile the program.

EDIT:
Then other thing that I observed. If I reopen FL (it will open latest file), but then I cannot compile opened file. I have to open same file (Ctrl+O) and then FL can compile file OK.

I downloaded v2 zip and extracted to C:\PIC\FineLine folder. I have not used earlier version of FL with this computer, so am I missing some plug-in or something or should zip include everything?

FL first looks for the include file as written above in the directory in which your .pbp program is saved.
Secondly it looks in the PicBasicPro compiler directory as set up in options.
Third it does additonal searching but try the above first.

The download includes everything.

Works if include file is in the same folder as the main pbp (as you said),

INCLUDE "Variables_v0_1.pbp"
but if file is in different folder then it fails to open it (path in front of actual file is not working).

Could this be fixed?

I prefer kind of "modular coding", which means that I use a lots of includes in main pbp. All the code is in include files, which are located in different folder, etc ../include/ -folder to keep thing more clear and readable. This is working very well with MicroCode Studio.

Correct; for compiling PBP finds the include files.

Gusse may be opening the include files with a click in the explorer window.
The next version of FL will also do an explorer open if the full path is provided in the include.

I'm not sure how to code for a partial path as it could be anywhere on the hard drive and doing a search could take several minutes in some cases unless their is a way to limit it.

Relative path should be always linked to main pbp-file folder (at least this is how it is done in MicroCode Studio), so that should fix the location in HD.

You are saying if the include isn't in the main pbp folder it is within one of it's sub folders?

It doesn't have to be a sub folder in main pbp-file folder. It can be any folder and path is point to it (same like in command prompt, i.e: "cd .." goes 1 level up for current folder).

Example:
If main pbp-file is located

c:\pic\pbp\prog\
and include files

c:\pic\pbp\incl\

In MCS I can do

include "..\incl\[filename_to_be_included].pbp"
so starting folder is "c:\pic\pbp\prog" and then it goes one level up "c:\pic\pbp" and then to "incl"-folder, which is parallel to prog.

So FL should look in main pbp file folder and all of its sub folders and all up clicks to root(C:\)?

I think PBP only looks in the directory the code is in and the directory PBP is in. Any other location needs to have the path to the include in the code. So look in the two default locations and parse the INCLUDE line for the other possible locations???

Problem: Opening an include in FL explorer which is located in a parallel directory.
I have written a include open routine which does what you have requested in FineLineIDE.

In tests with MCS however I am unable to duplicate opening an .inc in: M:\PBP3\ABC INCLUDE
with the .pbp program in: M:\PBP3\ABC PROGRAM
when called out as: Include "...\ABC INCLUDE\TEST1.INC"

I am using Microcode Studio 5.0.0.0 and compiler PBPX 3.0.1.4
What versions are you using?

I can email you a test version of FL with the new include routine if you PM me your email address.

Hi Horm,

There are still couple of issues that I noticed in brief trial with v2.0.0.1 BETA.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you re-open FL, then it cannot compile file. (require that file has been once openned with FL earlier). Same issue that I noticed also earlier.
"Invalid Include Path: "..\incl\PIC18F4520_config.pbp" Aborting Compile"

If you open same file again (with Ctrl+O or with button) then it will compile the file.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Include files are accessible, but when you try to close them then FL says (pop-up):
"FL THREAD ERROR 0" and there is OK button. Once pressed OK, another pop-up will come up with same error again. And again and again... Only by pressing "Close Tab" button again error message will disappear.

At least I can repeat this issue when I open all include files and close FL, then re-open FL and try to close include tabs.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Used test file: http://www.mediafire.com/?yty070ruqh4ycyh

BR,

v2.0.0.2 BETA seems to work OK :)

There is still an issue about saving & closing tabs. If you open and close tab without leaving tab and content is untouched, FL will not prompt "Save Changes" question. But if you change to other tab and return and then close without modifying tab content, FL always ask if you would like to save changes. I think this is minor problem but fixable.

Good job Norm!

EDIT: If you click "***CURRENT LINE***" in exlorer view (includes), it tries to open same name include file without success. Could it be changed/removed?

The .ER file is the PBP compiler text to assy error file.
The .ERR file is the MPSAM assy to hex error file.

Possibly the "Users" in C:\Users\dlkerl\picstuff\oven is throwing FL off?
Try compiling with your program file in a non Users directory.

Yes I should be able to disable all auto indent of assy lines if that would be best?
Anyone familiar with assy please advise.

The problem is the same as mentioned in post #112 of this thread and if I recall correctly in another thread. When you added support for PBP3 older versions without the registration code from MeLabs does not work. The screen shot in post #112 is typical.

Sooner or later everyone will be updated... but in my case I have more than three machines with PBP and I really do not want to pay the fee multiple times. So I am still using PBP2.6x on a few.

An access violation occurs when the program is attempting to read/write to an array element beyond the length of the array.
Try temporarily renaming the FineLineIDE.ini file in the FL directory for a clean start up to see if that solves the problem.

Hey Norm,

Here is a suggestion for FineLine...

How about having the ability to link a basic program to a schematic file. Or to be able to attach a drawing to a given program. That way when months or years later you open an old program you can easily pull up the schematic for the project.

Just a thought... possibly it would be just as easy to reference the given schematic in the notes or comments at the beginning of your program.

others thoughts??

There are no plans to add one to FL as time doesn't permit.

On compile FL does prompt to switch from PBP3 to prePBP3 when needed and if so you will need to find the other compiler in options but just once for each.

Not likely but I wonder if administrative privileges are required for an ini save?

Be sure the PBP compiler is located in options > PicBasicPro Compiler as FL searches for devices within that directory.

I will add a message for instances when FL doesn't find the devices to prompt for locating the compiler. Also if a device is entered to take some safeguards.

Ioannis, I'm with you, It doesn't work for me either.

OK I am testing FL v3.76 as per Ioannis.
My version of PBP3 is 3.0.8.4

FL > Options > PicBasicPro Compiler on my PC is found at C:\PBP3\PBPX.EXE
FL looks in directory C:\PBP3\DEVICES
In that location it finds the following:
PIC10F202.PBPINC
PIC10F206.PBPINC
PIC10F222.PBPINC
PIC12C508.PBPINC
etc.

What might be different on other PC's or PBP versions other than the users specific choice of PBP3 location?

On my installation:

PBP 3.1 is in:

D:\Program Files (x86)\PBP3_1

and DEVICES is in:

D:\Program Files (x86)\PBP3_1\DEVICES

My new install is the same as yours Ionnis except on my c:/ drive. After doing what Norm suggested and finding it manually it says it has been found but when clicking on the processor selection box it still comes back saying "Find PBPx.EXE in Options"

Dave Purola,

Got it...thanks

Ioannis what is your PBP version? Mine apparently is out of date.

Ioannis

Dave, I have exactly the same response.

Norm, my PBP is the latest 3.1

See this example (https://app.box.com/s/27181sx72rimp4ao5z7de797yz3a8j2c) from "MicrocCode Studio > Help > About" for the full version number. Mine is an older v3.0.8.4

I setup the compiler as in the attached picture but still asks for the compiler. It does not want to cooperate with me!

Dave, do you have two seperate disk?

Also, Norm, I have Win-7, 64 bit if that matters.

I'm presently working on the addition of a separate category settable in options for v3.1
Hopefully ready in the not too distant future.
Perhaps will have a copy of v3.1 soon.

First of all I wish to thank all those interested in FineLineIDE BETA 3.76. To be honest though FL BETA 3.76 wasn't intended to be released for use with PBP as of yet and wasn't provided on this forum.

I began what I thought might be a fairly straight forward tweak to enable use of FL BETA 3.76 however am finding it a bit more than anticipated. Also I need PicBasicPro v3.1 to do testing as well.

As I am well into a more recent addition of a "replace all" feature which displays all and only the lines containing the replace terms and it has become obvious it would be difficult to track the changes made in FL BETA 3.76 to be certain of making the same changes in the FL currently in development.

Sorry for the misunderstanding and will be offering the next version of FL including PBP as soon as it is available. For now please use FineLineIDE v3.3 (http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/content.php?r=275-FineLineIDE)

Hi Normnet,

I was wondering if I can, like MCS does, avoid the Crossing page boundary error?

8569

I'm using your version 3.3 :wink:

...I forgot to mention that I currently use this method as a turnaround to avoid the error message:


@ ERRORLEVEL -306 ; turn off crossing page boundary message

Okay, thanks anyway.

Fantastic editor!!! :)

BTW, what or where is your official website or depository apart from the one I found in the PROTON forum (http://www.protonbasic.co.uk/content.php/2077-FineLineIDE), if there is one of course?

Normnet

The PBP download site is available in the PBP WiKi. (http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/content.php?r=275-FineLineIDE)

Hi Norm,

I've read the FL's manual and couldn't find what I'm searching for so I ask here.

I was wondering if you have included an option to have lines of code that will be left out at COMPILE time?

I have also tested your version 3.76 but it crashes from the start - impossible to test :frown: Maybe something with my PC's configuration?

See above post #178. Version 3.76 wasn't offered on this site and isn't compatible with PBP.

Thanks Norm,

What about lines not to be compiled?

Normnet
- 9th January 2018, 23:13
I have been working steadily with the replace all feature as well as rewrites of the find dialog and replace dialog and am not planning past it.
