Gutter selection like in word or TextPad
« on: December 10, 2017, 09:20:56 pm »
Hello,

I would like to select line(s) by clicking in the gutter, like it is possible with many editors like Word or TextPad.
Is this possible with SynEdit?

Like so: https://imgur.com/a/9bVAk

Thanks

My Lazarus (1.9) supports it. Click on the line number selects line, click+shift selects more lines.
Lazarus 2.1.0 r59757M FPC 3.3.1 r40507 x86_64-linux-qt Chakra, Qt 4.8.7/5.11.2, Plasma 5.14.2
Lazarus 1.8.2 r57369 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64 Wine 3.21

Try Eye-Candy Controls: https://sourceforge.net/projects/eccontrols/files/

If you click on the gutter, will the line be completely selected (so that it is blue and can be deleted), or just normally selected?
I would be interested in the completely select.

It will be completely selected, including the linefeed/cr.

But you must click the line-number part of the gutter. Otherwise it will set a breakpoint.

You can click anywhere in the gutter, if move the mouse while you press the button. I.e select multiple lines. (Opitons: "Extended")

You can change this. There is plenty of config.
Menu: Tools > Options.
Dialog/Tree: Editor > Mouse

You can change even more in the advanced settings.

All this is in 1.6 and 1.8.

Line's completely selected and pressing Del deletes it. You can also delete line with CTRL+Y without selecting it.

Hm... that is weird

I'm using Delphi 10.2 with the SynEdit installed using GetIt.

SynEdit has version SynEdit.pas,v 1.32.1 2012/19/09 which seems to be the latest version:
https://github.com/SynEdit/SynEdit/blob/master/Source/SynEdit.pas
or is there a more up-to-date version of SynEdit out there?

If I click the gutter, the line will only normally selected, without the text.

If I drag the cursor along the gutter, multiple lines get selected, but alas not the last line where the cursor is at.

SynEdit is not equal to SynEdit

Lazarus has a forked version of SynEdit. The fork supports this. It was added to the fork.

I do not know if the original SynEdit has something like this.
