The Eloquence Development Environment

Tool Windows

Tools windows are specialized application elements which provide a specific task. Toolwindows are permanent. When they are closed, they are merely hidden, the content is retained. Each Toolwindow has an associated menu item in the VIEW menu pane to make them visible or invisible. Additionally, each Toolwindow has an associated icon button in the View toolbar window.

The Output Window

All log messages are displayed in the Output Window. The output Window provides multiple views which can be toggled with the tab at the bottom of the window. Depending on the type of the message, the apropriate area is used. For example: When compiling a program, the "Build" area is used to display any messages.

Double clicking on an error message in the Build view positions the cursor on the indicated line.

The Variables Window

During a Debug session, the Variables Window displays the value of variables. Arrays are displayed with a + sign in front and can be extended by a double click on the variable name.

The variable value can be changed by double clicking on the variable value.

The Call Stack Window

During a Debug session, the Call Stack Window displays the execution stack of the executed programs. It contains a list of all segments which are currently active. Double clicking on a line will set the cursor to the indicated line.

The Line Draw Characters

The Line Draw Characters Toolwindow is only accessible if the "use enhancement characters" option is active for the current file. Please refer to the Editor settings for further reference.

By selecting a character image, the corresponding character is inserted in the editor window.
