Hello Derek and thanks for your quick answer,
I know about this feature but it really doesn't fit our needs:
There is way to little space for nearly any useable description. Is there any way to expand this?
Right. We need a function so select nodes or content in relation the the active selection like
I'm currently using XMetaL Author Developer 5.0 with Visual Studio 2005:
I simply can't find the method getNodesByXpath within the selection-object. I only know a workaround like
Hmm, ok. That's really sad because VS is now 2 versions ahead and the problem exists for more then 5 years now… But thanks anyway for this information.
Ok, I see.
You are right, of course. But I am not able to edit the code while debugging it, step back, run the line again and so on (like in the IDE of VBA for example).
Secondly I wonder if I can send command directly to XMetaL. When trying to to this via the input window with commands like msgbox selection.ContainerName they are not executed.
(Translation: “The statement can not be processed while running in execute code”).
When trying to debug XMetaL scripts from VS I got this message in the beginning (the build process is executed anyway and XMetaL starts up normally after this):
(Translation: “Scriptcode can not be debugged. Illegal function.”)
I am not really familiar with the internals of Visual Studio, so if you could give me some help here…
Thank you in advance,
