PB 2019 IDE using the Script Commenter!

         The STD Script Commenter is a significant enhancement to the way a PB developer works productivity wise by easily allowing code comments to be added to any object class in the current object painter's PowerScipt or declaration areas! The Script Commenter is based on the original commenter application by R.C. Sizer but has been totally refactored. The latest release includes the following new features ...
  • Migrated the App code from PB2017R3 build 1858 to PB2019 build 2082
  • Replaced STD Integrated Framework from v2018.4.0.112 to v2019.4.0.140
  • Added public functions: "of_get_rte_key", "of_get_rte_type", "of_get_rte_version" to "ap_commenter" application object class to support framework RTE processing

Mapping the Script Commenter in the PB 2019 IDE

    The latest Script Commenter is designed to work with any Unicode version of PowerBuilder (v10.0 through 2019). It can be activated in any PB IDE by creating a toolbar short-cut icon and assigning to the EXE as follows:

app path\ScriptCommenterXXX.exe  header
  - or -
app path\ScriptCommenterXXX.exe  block
  - or -
app path\ScriptCommenterXXX.exe  inline
  • where XXX = Compiled type 32M, 32P or 64P 
     The values added as a header, in-line or block comment area are located in the "Comment_Block.ini" file. This INI file can customized based on the values found in the "Comment_Template.ini" file to meet the exact needs of the PowerBuilder developer!

    You can download the new STD Script Commenter application from the STD Framework's SourceForge project's website by clicking here and then getting more productive in minutes!


Note: The previous PB12.x / PB2017 Script Commenter versions are in the Archive sub-folder.
