Function List not working in v7.2



  • Notepad++ uses the commentExpr to determine which parts of the text to skip when searching for classes, methods and/or functions.
    “Embedded” comments are not supported.

  • C# function list fix for v7.4.2
    Basically copy the function section inside classRange and paste it at the same level of classRange.

  • @ MAPJe71
    Thank you for the explanation about comment handling. Of course I assumed Notepad++ would strip comments lexically, replacing them by an empty string, and only then apply mainExpr, but it seems not to be the case.

    For my situation and needs I prefer to disable commentExpr at all, and do the other minor improvements written in my comments. I do get all functions, and do not get false functions. Reasoning, I do not have functions inside comments, and I do not place comments in function headers except between ) and { . Besides that, functions temporarely commented out, may still count as functions.
    At least the <parser> above is a partial proposal to my and other’s issues.

    By the way do you have an idea how to remove the mis-written earlier posts. I was not fluent with this BB and with markup language, and is there a preview?

    how to remove the mis-written earlier posts

    Use delete in the three-dots menu right next to ^ 0 v.

    is there a preview?

    As soon as you hit reply to open the edit pane you get either a preview pane on the right or a show preview option in the top right corner of the edit pane.



  • I’m only allowed to delete within 180 seconds. And today I get the preview, but yesterday there was none (preview availability depends on browser window width) . The BB is not easy but I’m motivated.

    About the issue, I propose to disable commentExpr because of the following cases:

    function setdata(x,y,z,w) // set coordinates x y z w

    function setdata(x,y,z,w) /* set coordinates x y z w */

    Functionlist will detect the function if there are two spaces between ) and the comment, but will not detect the function if there is just one space. My mainExpr as above given, stops after ) and does not eat one space.



  • @David-Liang Doesn’t work :(



  • i have problem too with Javascript functionList. I change the langID=58 (L_JAVASCRIPT) to langID=19 (L_JS) at :

    <association id= “javascript_function” langID=“19” />

    and it work verywell.



  • This was bothering me for a while - turns out that even though I tick “don’t use roaming profiles” when installing, it still does so.
    And the old config file was from 2016. So I simply copied the new version over from the notepad install dir and everything is OK now!



  • I recovered from this problem by uninstalling notepad++ and then renaming what was left in Program Files to oldNotepad++, then reinstalling notepad++. Something obviously is out of whack.

    Takes less time this way
