Language Call Tip (API)



  • I am creating a Language Call Tip (API)
    My function look like this /copy,Fname1,Ext1,–,Fname2,Ext2,–
    so my startFunc="," is a comma thus when I enter the second , comma in the function the Call Tip goes away.
    How can I handle this? I know I can use a ( as a start function and replace it after the function is written. but I don’t like that.
    Here is my code.

    • [<Environment ignoreCase=“yes” startFunc="," stopFunc="." paramSeparator="," terminal="!" additionalWordChar="*/"/>
      <KeyWord name="/copy" func=“yes” >
      <Overload retVal=“char” descr=“Copies a file.” >
      <Param name=“Fname1,Ext1,–,Fname2,Ext2,–” />
      </Overload>
      </KeyWord>
      ]

    Do i have the only language with “,” comma separators?
    Two more function examples. ESEL and FLST
    ESEL,S,REAL,227
    FLST,5,2,2,ORDE,2

    The problem is that the Programming language uses the same start function as the separator.
    /copy,Fname1,Ext1,–,Fname2,Ext2,-- (where /COPY is the command and the rest is the syntext)
    ASK, Par, Query, DVAL (Where ASK is the command)
    So I have a command and then my syntext separated by commas as son as notepad see the second comma it think it is a new command that it does not know and it stop displaying the tool tip for the original command.
    I need a way to tel notepad that it should keep the tool tip there until it see the terminal character that must be a space.
