I know it won't happen in this release cycle, but just want to make sure it's mentioned.
It would be awesome if the top half of the script editor was a little more interactive with
the bottom half of the script compiler error messages. But, I can see why this would be
a huge complication because it's like a notepad document becoming interactive, when
it's just meant to be feeding data into another program...in this case the compiler.
Ideally, the entire programming line would highlight yellow or some other color for the
error in question, or some kind of "character" indication that the problem exists in this
area of the script somewhere. But at the same time, you don't want to mess up what
the person already wrote for the script.
Being that the script compiler message definitely knows that the error exists in a particular
line number, the problem is probably in trying to get that information back to the "notepad"
document for any kind of visual indication. Right now it appears that the direction is one
way...."notepad" feeds into script compiler. Maybe if the source file could be used to create
another source txt file or even better an "error txt" file with the original code along with error
nomenclature added to show the error in question. Even if this was a single character placed
at the beginning of the problem line number. .This new "Error" folder could be purged of
documents at any point later on since it's just a temporary error bucket anyway.
It's just a thought, and probably far from ideal....but just something to generate some ideas if
people were to post what they think could be done to add more functionality to writing scripts
without needing PCT, an ES, or an AS-P to help get them written on the Jace.
