UEStudio integrated development environment tour: Integrated scripting

The UEStudio tour is intended to guide you through some of the advanced IDE features of the application. UEStudio includes all of the features of UltraEdit, the world's best text editor, which are not covered here.

UEStudio tour: Integrated scripting

UEStudio provides a way for you to automate your common edit tasks through macros as well as integrated scripting. Scripting is a much more powerful, dynamic alternative to macros in that you have the flexibility and logic of the Javascript language at your disposal, and you have access to the UEStudio Application Object (commands specific to the UEStudio application) as well as the Document Object (commands specific to the UEStudio active document).

Some of the commonly-used Application Object commands are:

  • clipboardContent
  • columnMode
  • frInFiles (Find/Replace in files)
  • open
  • runTool
  • ...plus many more

Some of the commonly-used Document Object commands are:

  • copyAppend
  • findReplace
  • gotoLineSelect
  • isChar (evaluation)
  • isNotFound (evaluation)
  • key (to enter data)
  • sortAsc
  • ...plus many more
