Believe it or not - most of the scripts I've been writing of late were developed using this script - KIXPAD - a (mostly) full featured text editor written in Kixtart and Kixforms.Net. In fact - Kixpad was developed using Kixpad (and believe me, its a very interesting experience doing that).

Most folks that use the fancy editors will find Kixpad very crude. This editor wasn't meant to be all that serious - the script (for me) was to allow me to excerise ALL the controls in one place. I want to use it to test each new release.

Design Goals

I'm a notepad user basically (and use ASE when I'm serious) - and Kixpad was based on notepad, plus I added some things I always wanted (like a MRU, a Toolbar and Multiple Document support) ... what I tried to accomplish was an interface that started "clean" (like notepad), but that expanded only when needed (like the tabs not appearing unless more then one document was loaded). The Find/Goto popup panel only pops-up when required, stays for as long as needed, and disappears when required (the pop-up can be pinned and un-pinned).

Here is a run-down of features:

- Most Recently Used (MRU) files list
- Open Toolbar button /w MRU
- Multiple Document (Tabbed) Support (with some subtlety)
- Cut/Copy/Paste with Undo and Redo
- Find and Replace using embedded popup frame
- Goto line feature
- Line number in StatusBar
- WordWrap and Font changing
- Debug->Run script within editor (assumes wkix32 in system32)

Kixpad requires the latest and greatest build. PLan to add much more stuff to this script as time goes on ...

Comments and suggestions welcome.

-Shawn

How did you do that?

This is nice!
