Tag List command

This command displays a dialog showing a list of predefined "tags". A tag is simply a short string of characters and the name "tag" is used as this feature is commonly used for "HTML Tags".

 

The purpose of the tag list is to provide a method to easily insert into a document commonly used tags/strings without having to type them.

 

The Modify command in the right-click context menu allows the list of tags to be modified or a different taglist file to be selected.  The tags consist of a start and end tag.

 

To insert a tag, select the tag you wish to insert and double click on the tag or press enter.  When the tag is inserted into the active document, the start tag (if defined) is inserted at the beginning of any text selected and the end tag (if defined) is inserted at the end of the current selection.  If no selection is made the tags are inserted at the cursor location.

 

By double-clicking on one of the tags UltraEdit will insert the tag and the focus will change to the file.  If Enter is pressed while focus is in the Tag List UltraEdit will insert the tag and focus will remain in the Tag List.   CTRL+Enter will also insert the tag and the focus will change to the file.

 

Multiple groups of tags may be defined and the group may be selected from the drop-down list.

 

Adding New Tags

The default file for the tags is the taglist.uet file.  This is stored in the directory where the uedit32.ini / uestudio.ini file is located which is by default %APPDATA%/IDMComp/UltraEdit or %APPDATA%/IDMComp/UEStudio.  Additional tag lists have been provided by users and may be found at http://www.ultraedit.com/downloads/extras.html#taglists.  If a user navigates to this page and selects the Tag List the would like to add (for example ASP Tags) they can save this to their local system.

 

The full tag list should be pasted into the taglist.uet file just above the "Group List" section at the bottom.  The EXACT title must be added to the [Group List].  For example, the ASP tag list title is:

 

[Tag Group - ASP - Active Server Pages]

 

The original [Group List] should be modified from:

[Group List]
0=COLD FUSION - Tags
1=HTML - Special Characters
2=HTML - Tags
3=UE/UES Macro Commands
4=UE/UES Script Commands
5=

to:

[Group List]
0=COLD FUSION - Tags
1=HTML - Special Characters
2=HTML - Tags
3=UE/UES Macro Commands
4=UE/UES Script Commands
5=ASP - Active Server Pages
6=

when adding ASP tags.  The empty lines at the end of the Group List and the Tag List are important and should not be forgotten.
