Hollywood IDE

Now that the RapaGui is available, the Hollywood IDE would needs an improvement adding the possibility to have a furher button to show the xml code as well. Having only the possibility to show the standard hollywood code it is given only a partial view of the examples/programs.

Are you talking about the Windows IDE or about the Amiga GUI here?

Amiga gui sorry. I'm mainly os4 user and playing with the rapagui examples via the Amiga gui I can see the source of the hws but not the correspondent xml file.

Sorry, but that's not going to happen because there's no easy way to detect which scripts are accompanied by XML files.

I was also thinking about that recently. Couldn't a preprocessor option like #APPXML be added so you can "link" the xml files if you want and then the Hollywood GUI can open those aufomatcally when the script is opened.

That's already possible using the @FILE preprocessor command. You can just do something like this:

Code: Select all
@FILE 1, "GUI.xml"
moai.CreateApp(ReadString(1))


This will automatically link "GUI.xml" into your applet or executable.

Yes, but I was thinking more in the line of the original posting, opening also the xml file when showing the source .hws, so not a command really but maybe a special kind of comment with a reserved syntax that the Hollywood GUI could easily find to display also the xml file. something like:

Code: Select all
#APPXML=/data/mygui.xml


Just an idea; don't know how difficult could be to implement and obviously not that important but nice to have.

I think a better idea would be if the files declared in @FILE were shown in the tabbed browser on the right (like images, sounds, animations, etc.) and then by double-clicking them they could be opened by the IDE and you could edit them. I think that would be a convenient solution...

That would be very cool to have in the Amiga GUI.

Thank you very much.

Well, in the Amiga GUI you won't see this because the Amiga GUI isn't an IDE.... it's only in the Windows IDE.
