Development environment PROMOTIC
The development environment is used to create PROMOTIC applications.
The development environment is a program in the PROMOTIC system that is located in folder:
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
- In the object configuartion window, there is an object path indicated on the top. 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: Pressing the Alt key shows the shortcut letters for each configurator and if the letter is pressed 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 "Disabled object
" configurator is extended by the option to enter Macro expression $.cfgfile
and this way it is possible to define which objects are to be activated in the application by defining them in the configuration file.
- 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.
