Development environment PROMOTIC
The development environment is used to create PROMOTIC application.
The development environment is a program in the PROMOTIC system that is located:
The whole development environment is optimized for mouse control, but it can also be controlled by keyboard.
The development environment consists of multiple editors:
The development environment contains multiple additional editors and tools. These are for example:
- and many others
: The option to select multiple objects
at the same level in both the Pma
The selected operation (e.g. Cut, Copy, Remove, etc.) is then executed over all selected objects.
- The option to move the application tab to a new window in order to split the development environment into multiple separate windows.
: The option to edit multiple Pma
objects simultaneously by means of tabs of the application in the window title bar of the development environment.
- In the object configuration window, there is an object path indicated on the up. Clicking this path can be used to navigate to any other object. This way it is possible to switch between object easily.
- Editing by keyboard (without mouse) is now supported: After pressing the Alt key shows the shortcut letters for each configurator and after pressing the letter the focus is moved to the selected configurator. The concept of such letter is hiearachic, i.e. some letter may represent a set of configurators and after pressing such letter another letters are indicated for sub-configurators. This way it is possible to move around quickly while designing an application.
- The "Object accessible via variable
" configurator is now considered obsolete and therefore it is hidden in new apps and in applications that did not use it.
: Development environment PROMOTIC now remebers (in the Promotic.ini
file) 10 last edited projects. If you run the Promotic.exe
program, then the last edited projects will be listed at launch for selection.
