|Mapping the Script Commenter in the PB 2017 IDE|
The new Script Commenter is designed to work with any Unicode version of PowerBuilder (v10.0 through 2017). 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 are located in the "Comment_Block.ini" file. This file can built based on the values found in the "Comment_Template.ini" file and is customizable by the PB developer!
