Zooming to script editor from form editor

Postby Gary R. Schaecher » Tue Oct 07, 2008 1:33 am

Haven't found an easy way to open a form in the script editor once I have it open in the form editor. How about adding keyboard short-cut or a line to the context menu when you right-mouse click on a forms title, so you can open it in the script editor. Using the Solution Explorer is a 'death by clicking' when you have 38 modules and thousands of forms.

Have you used the "Link with Editor"-button in the solution explorer? It selects the object in the solution explorer that is currently being edited. I think that is the fastest way to do what you want now.

yes link with editor is currently the fastest way

but we will add some context menu on both sides where you can open the script form design and visa versa, if we can find a nice key combo that isnt used in both editors then we could use that (but that last thing is getting harder and harder :( )

Thanks for that tip Johan!

Everyone likes that...if you can't find a keyboard for the zoom we can live with the link editor command, although a zoom would be terrific if you can pull it off

in the coming release of 4.1 we will have 2 shortcuts:

CTRL-SHIFT-A and CTRL-SHIFT-Z with these 2 you can open/toggle design or the script editor of a form.
