I have added new screenshots of my property list component that matches the power and design of the Visual Basic 6 Property List.
Please leave any recommendations or comments.

Maybe you'll give me a straight answer. I can never get one from divil about his similar project.
What exactly does this do that InterDev doesn't?
Cause I paid a lot of money for Visual Studio, and I'm wondering what it is MS took my money for but left out.
I mean, if it's just something you're doing for the learning experience, that's cool. Perfectly acceptable answer. But the way you two keep plugging your respective IDE's here, I'm starting to feel like I'm getting a sales pitch. Tell me why I want to buy it....

I thought divil was going to give his away. ;)
01-08-2002, 11:57 AM
Well... he won't give it to me :(

I do mine because I enjoy it, making an IDE is a way of gaining many different skills at the same time.
If I ever finish it, I will probably give it away, as a resource for other developers to use.

If I ever finish it...
I can't think of a single program I have ever truly finished. ;)

Source? Maybe, who knows.

Good. I've always wanted the opportunity to laugh at your British naming conventions. :D

Divil, i have had a look at the code you posted, and it is very good. It has got my property list working with the DHTMLEdit control.
I was just wondering wether I can do this;Dim cElement As IHTMLElement
Dim aElement As IHTMLAnchorElement
Set cElement = GetElementUnderCaret()
If cElement.tagName = "<A>" Then
Set aElement = cElement
End ifCan I do this to see what tag it is and then assign it to the correct elementobject from the MSHTML library?
Thanks in advance...

well, im developing an IDE because this is the first time I am doing one. I have always wanted to develop an IDE, and now I am doing so...
I will release my IDE freeware at www.downloads.com once its finished.

You can probably test for it like this:
If cElement.tagName = "A"
I'm not sure about the other thing, why not just try it?

Divil, lets say I find that the active element is an image element, does that mean i can set an IHTMLImageElement object variable equal to the activeelement?
And then if I also change any attributes for an elemtn, will they automatically update the DocumentHTML source?
Divil, what I mean by "enmuerate a list of properties" is - lets say an ActiveX Control is selected, how would I know what properties it has, besides the standard attributes? Basically, InterDev somehow does that, it automatcilly knows what "custom" attributes this "ActiveX Control" has...
I wonder how it is done...look forward to your great answers Divil
Thanks in advance...
