Friends,

Consolidate and crystallize your wishes regarding IDE. Let us discuss in detail before doing anything on IDE.

For me, I use IDE always to build my projects. However, I don't use form designer.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Rathi,

Me too only for building. Forms I always create in PRG.
IDE is since months crashing (after several compiles) so I developed my own building-app.

Rathi,

I like the idea of a form designer. Building a form with code costs a lot of time. I good form designer saves a lot of time. But the current form desgner in the IDE creates a lot of unnecessary code. I like to keep my code as compact a possible.

This is an example code for how to create a builder:

How to create a form designer is more complex.

I like form designer and like easy compiling too. I use too much, quite I never use batch files at prompt command. By IDE it is faster and very practical.
Rare case I use debugger. I prefer to use MsgDebug() instead.
IMHO this debugger could it be in separated/desmembered from IDE.

Sorry to say Claudio, but after debugger be incorporated it's became those errors...

I wish a lot but really much I expect for improving with more features in form designer.

But I use much for compilling too.

What I believe to be good is to compose a new IDE in modular way. Executables files composing:
One for form designer, one for building process, one Debugger module, one for Reports designer, one for DBF manager.

Who knows to add other modules like documentation add on, Flow designer, own editor... (I dream so high)

All these modules being managed by IDE but different executables.
I believe in this way It could separate the main problems of our IDE structure.
Having a new way to focus different problems and make it more stable too and more light.

And it would it makes easier for IDE own compilation. I imagining IDE with thousand of lines of codes... :|
Very hard to give maintenance, hard to compiles and hard to understand it...

That's it. One functionality = one exe, just like in linux.
The one we can't do, and I want to recover from the actual crappish IDE is the form designer.
The rest is a puzzle of pieces already existant in this forum.

There's another option too: a standard windows resource editor and a translator from MS-laguaje to HMG forms.
But this requires a lot more work.
