load header file with same name as the current c file
Thanks Alan! You make it sound easy.
I know how to make changes to the contextMenu.xml file, to add or delete menu entries. But that is it.
Is it possible to add your code to the contextMenu.xml ? Can you show an example?
I can certainly show an example of how to add a script to the right-click context menu. But the script isn’t embedded there, it’s just “pointed-to” there. Have you installed the Pythonscript plugin and tried to get the script running manually?
I am sorry, but I don’t know anything about Pytonscript or running scripts “manually”. That sounds weird to me.
I am not a super user of Notepad++, and my “programming skills” (if I can call it that) is limited to C and Matlab.
I totally understand, if you consider me a “lost cause”, at this point. Anyway, thanks for trying. Have a nice weekend. :-)

There are various plugins that have been written to solve your issue. Here is a presumeably uncomplete list (all untested):

Well… I’m not 100% sure (yet) but you are starting to sound like someone that wants to be spoon-fed, yes. I’m not so much into that, but if you show some amount of effort, I and others here are definitely “in your corner” and will help you.
I would need to be “spoon-fed”. And I don’t like that. When I made the request, I was hoping there would be a solution ready.
Once again, thanks for your help.
I will give the plugins on the list a try. They might be exactly what I was looking for.

Hmmmmmm…Pythonscript is just another plugin on the list…
For me there is nothing easy about pythonscripts. It is a question of knowing my limitations and balance between how much benefit there is with loading the associated header/source file versus the time to learn about and write the python code. Starting from where I am today, it does not give any meaning. I will have to progress on my own terms.
Yes, I know. I understand you reaction.

You might want to install the Solution Tools plug-in. I use it and the <Ctrl>~ hotkey to cycle among files having the same name and various different file extensions.
