Programming / Windx Scroll Bar?
« on: February 08, 2024, 07:00:34 PM »
Can someone tell me if it is possible to have a vertical scroll bar on the Windx window?  When I search on "SCROLL" - I get endless answers on GUI programming for a Panel. 

I just want to be able to scroll back on my Windx session.  When I click on the Windx Help - I see PxPlus Release Info shows PxPlus 2020 Update 1 (version 17.10).  Not seeing a version number for Windx specifically... 

Thanks in advance for the help...

Okay, the ED+  with the ALL button did let me highlight all occurrences using a pipe for OR, which is great.  I don't suppose there is then an option to display ONLY the search results without displaying lines that do not have my search strings?

I just tried doing a boolean AND a few different ways and could not get it to work.  If I wanted to find both:


in the same pgm statement, would that be possible?   I tried:



If that is not possible, then I'm curious what a boolean AND would be used for.  An example would be great to see.

Hi folks.  I came out of a BBx / BBj environment - new to PVX.  (forgive me.  :-\   ) 

We have PVX ver 14. 

Background that can be skipped:
In BBx, I created a nice program search utility that I could call, with the pgm to be searched in memory: 
and then get the lines of that pgm
and then write all the lines of that pgm to a text file (a memory file for PVX).

The objective is to then be able to do different search features, such as a progressive search, where you first search for STRING1, which leads you to want to search for STRING1 and STRING2, and that leads to wanting to search for STRING1, 2, and 3.  So, after each search result is displayed to the screen, you press <F1> to tell the search pgm, "Search for everything I just searched for again", and then you add the next string to include in the search results. 

Having your multiple search strings all on the screen at the same time, bolded to stand out...  You could even do a DUMPF XYZ$ to get the variable values along the way.  This could be very useful in debugging a runtime error on the fly.

The Ask:
Hoping I don't have to reinvent the wheel - have any of you created a fast editor with these kinds of features (different than the Integrated Toolkit editor,) and made it open source and/or available to the PVX community?
