Scrolling



  • Is there a setting to enable scrolling when you cursor down that leaves 10 lines visible at all times except when there are less than 10 lines left, and vice-versa for cursoring up and scrolling leaving 10 lines at the top ?

    I don’t think so, but there is a Scintilla feature (caret slop) that does this. I have NppExec plugin installed and use it to run the following NppExec script at startup:

    NPP_CONSOLE keep
    SET LOCAL SLOP = 10
    
    IF "$(ARGC)"<="1" THEN
        SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 13 $(SLOP)
    ELSE IF "$(ARGV[1])"~="on" THEN
        SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 13 $(SLOP)
    ELSE IF "$(ARGV[1])"~="off" THEN
        SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 8 0
    ELSE
        SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 13 $(ARGV[1])
    ENDIF
    
    

    NOTE: I don’t use 10 lines so my line is: SET LOCAL SLOP = 5.

    I’m sure your favorite scripting plugin could also handle this.

    Cheers.



  • I don’t understand what this means. :-(



  • example:

    (I had never heard of such a thing, and had guessed it wasn’t possible; so I was surprised that @Michael-Vincent readily knew how to do it.)



  • Thanks Peter. I understand it now. It is rather hard to put into words what it does, it seems. I could see it as a device to keep the (vertical) caret in the middle of the “viewport”, presuming that one always uses the same vertical size viewport and an appropriate setting for this parameter (i.e., half the viewport size).



  • Yeah, the scintilla doc that @Michael-Vincent mentioned says,

    By keeping the caret away from the edges, it is seen within its context. This makes it likely that the identifier that the caret is on can be completely seen, and that the current line is seen with some of the lines following it, which are often dependent on that line.

    That seems a reasonable justification for enabling that feature. I’m not likely to switch to using it… but I can at least see why some people would find it useful.



  • @PeterJones
    That’s exactly why I use it with just 5. Enough lines to get some context.

    Cheers.



  • Hi, @nbonniere, @michael-vincent, @alan-kilborn, @peterjones and All,

    From your posts, I just decided to investigate about these notions, especially the different kinds of vertical scrolling Y, allowed in N++ ;-))


    I first tried to assimilate the SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY Scintilla message from :

    https://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY

    Unfortunately, the columns of the table are wrongly displayed. Indeed, from the file ...\scintilla\include\Scintilla.h, we learn that the values of the 4 flags are :

    ...
    #define CARET_SLOP 0x01
    #define CARET_STRICT 0x04
    #define CARET_JUMPS 0x10
    #define CARET_EVEN 0x08
    ...
    

    So, to my mind, in order to get the correct value of caretYPolicy, which is a combination of CARET_SLOP, CARET_STRICT, CARET_JUMPS and CARET_EVEN flags, the right order, by decreasing weights, should be :

    CARET_JUMPS (16) - CARET_EVEN (8) - CARET_STRICT (4) - CARET_SLOP (1)

    Now, from the file ...\scintilla\src\Editor.cxx

        ...
    	caretXPolicy = CARET_SLOP | CARET_EVEN;
    	caretXSlop = 50;
    
    	caretYPolicy = CARET_EVEN;
    	caretYSlop = 0;
    
    	visiblePolicy = 0;
    	visibleSlop = 0;
        ...
    

    We can deduce that the default N++ caretYPolicy is CARET_EVEN, with a NULL caretSlop value

    On the other hand, in the ...\scintilla\include\Scintilla.h file, we have the line :

    ...
    #define SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 2403	
    ...
    

    Now, everything is clear ;-)) To study the N++ caretYPolicy we just need to :

    • Use, for instance, the NppExec plugin

    • Execute the command SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY caretYPolicy caretYSlop ( or SCI_SENDMSG 2403 caretYPolicy caretYSlop ), where :

      • caretYPolicy is a combination of the 4 flags, with value between 0 and 29

      • caretYSlop represents the number of lines of the unwanted zone UZ where the caret is… unwanted !

    Remarks :

    • From above, to restore the default N++ caretPolicy, simply use the command SCI_SENDMSG SCI_SETYCARETPOLICY 8 0

    • When the CARET_SLOP flag is not set (0), obviously, the caretYSlop value can be any

    • When the CARET_SLOP flag is set (Y), I chose the caretYSlop value of 5 lines, during the test phase

    • In order to easily test the different possibilities :

      • Notepad++ must have a single row of tabs

      • Use the Courier New font, with size 10 ( Settings > Style Configurator... > Global Styles > Default Style > Font Style )

      • Use the default zoom ( Ctrl + / )

      • Disable the Word wrap feature ( View > Word wrap )

      • Create a Test.txt file containing, at least, 300 lines, from Line 001 to Line 300

    Notes :

    • With some caretYPolicy tested, it may be difficult to get the caret on the first / last visible line ! If so, use, first, the mouse wheel or the vertical scroll bar to move the line, containing the caret, at the very beginning / end of the text window, before pressing the Up / Down keys or clicking on the left mouse button to see the effects of the current policy :-))

    Here are, below, in two tables, the different results of my searches. Unfortunately, due to the 16,384 bytes maximum post size, each table is posted, separately !

    Note the caret management, defined with caretYPolicy = 12. A bit weird !

    I just hope, that it’ll useful to someone ;-))
