File Tree View Interface
Article Number: 1545 | Last Updated: Thu, Oct 20, 2011 3:38 PM
UltraEdit and UEStudio feature an enhanced File Tree View. Visibility of the File Tree View may be toggled by selecting File Tree View from the Views/Lists submenu of the View menu or by pressing Ctrl+U.
Users may toggle between a listing of Project, Open, Explorer and List display modes.
Project mode: displays all files and folders in the active project with the project name listed at the top.
If no items are selected in the File Tree View in Project mode or if only the project name is selected the following items are shown in the context menu:
If a folder in the active project is linked to a remote server directory in the New Folder dialog and that folder is selected in the Project pane, the following additional options will be available in the context menu:
If a folder or file is selected in the File Tree View under Project mode, the following items are shown in the context menu:
Open mode: displays all currently open files.
The context menu in Open mode includes the following items:
Explorer mode: displays File Tree View for local/network drives and removable media.
If the button is pressed, the Explorer pane will be split horizontally with the upper pane showing the default file tree view, and the lower pane showing the contents of the selected folder as shown below:
Double-clicking on a file in the lower pane will cause it opened for editing. Double-clicking on a folder will navigate into that folder. Double-clicking on the folder labeled ".." at the top of the lower pane will navigate to the parent folder.
If a file is selected in Explorer mode, right-clicking in the File Tree View presents the following context menu:
If a folder is selected in Explorer mode, right-clicking in the File Tree View presents the following context menu:
Lists mode: displays Tree View for Favorites and user-created groups.
If focus is in the combo box, you may type the name for a new list heading (e.g., Personal) and pressing the "+" button would add this to the list as a new heading. You may then select the heading you would like to add items to and press the browse button "..." to present the context menu with the options Add Folder and Add File. If an item is selected in the Lists pane and the "-" button is pressed, the selected item will be removed from the list.
UEStudio includes three additional tabs at the bottom of the File Tree View that are not present in UltraEdit.
When the * Files tab is selected the three default tabs at the top of the display are active and selectable. In UEStudio the Project, Open, and Explorer modes display files/modules with small colored squares that indicate their status in relation to the CVS repository.
When the * Res tab is selected the resources for the active project are listed. If a folder is selected in the File Tree View under Resource mode the following items are shown in the context menu:
If a file is selected in Resource mode right clicking in the File Tree View presents the following context menu:
When the * Tags tab is selected classes, structs and other symbols defined inside the project workspace are displayed. Below these items globals (Functions, Labels, Macros, and Variables) will be listed as well. If you double-click on a displayed symbol, the appropriate source file will be opened and the line where the symbol is defined/declared will be positioned to. In UEStudio this interface replaces the Ctags mechanism used in UltraEdit.
If a tag is selected right clicking in the File Tree View presents the following context menu:
* Please note: These features are only supported in UEStudio, and not in UltraEdit.
