WinFBE Feature Request
« on: April 04, 2021, 06:54:09 AM »

Just an idea here Paul, it would be nice if there would be a way to embed into the Project a ToDo list.  I am in the process rewriting/porting a large app of mine in FreeBasic and need to keep straight the order of a long list of logic steps the app needs.  I have been using hen scratched paper notes now which I am terrible at not misplacing.  This wouldn't have to be fancy.  I am starting to use notepad now and keep the file in the project folder but it might be a nice touch to add this your wonderful IDE.  Not a big deal though.

Hi Jim,

In the "View Output Window" Ctrl+F9, there is the last tab which says "Notes". You can type notes in there on a per-project basis and those notes will be saved in your .wfbe project file.

Also, the second last tab in that window is called "TODO". That lists all of the "TODO's" that can be littered throughout your program code and double clicking on any one of them will take you to that position in the code. The TODo has to be the first item on a line.

Example:

' TODO: Corruption in output string occurs when assigned null value.

Notice that it is in the form of a comment with a ' character, followed by TODO and ended with a colon :

Excellent.  I missed that.
