Available macros in code templates
« on: October 28, 2009, 07:40:55 pm »
Hi all

I want to create a code template that will insert the date and the filename upon creation of the template. The date I managed using $Date(). Is there a way to get the file's name?

See: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/IDE_Macros_in_paths_and_filenames
I guess EdFile can be used.

At least I hope that these macroes are available in the code templates too.

Hmm, it seems to a different list of macros. Maybe somebody on the Lazarus list has an idea, otherwise it is a new feature request.

Thanks for the ideas. Those macros only get expanded at compile time. The list of macros that get expanded during template insertion is quite short.

I will add this as a feature request in Mantis.
