QlikView in UltraEdit

After my post about QlikView for Notepad++ and the various iterations of it since, I've been asked a few times about the possibility of doing the same for UltraEdit. After a customer finally pestered me enough I got around to an initial version 0.1 which you can find here http://www.qlikviewaddict.com/2012/09/qlikview-for-ultraedit.html

I'm putting the finishing touches to a new release and will post it shortly.

Regards

Matt

Hi Matt,

even I use your Notepad++ extension, I just want to thank you for the awesome Qlikview integration.

I use it on a daily base and it really improved my work experience.

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

Best regards,

Tom

Thanks Tom, I'm glad you find it useful! I assume you saw the new release of the Notepad++ version last week http://community.qlik.com/message/347549#347549

Re: QlikView in UltraEdit

Matt,

What is your opinion on selecting one or the other of these two products?

Thanks,

Re: QlikView in UltraEdit

Hi JC

I assume you mean UltraEdit and Notepad++?

If so then I would say it really depends on your needs. There isn't much in it when working with QV script files so it's down to whether that is all you will use it for or not.

If you need a proper development text editor in which you can work in many languages then I would say UltraEdit has the most functionality, but it is a commercial product and so has a cost involved.

Notepad++ isn't quite as powerful but has the benefit of being free. I personally use Notepad++ more than I do UltraEdit but that's just a personal preference.

Re: QlikView in UltraEdit

As with the Notepad++ version, I've now moved the QlikView language definition for UltraEdit to GitHub and added it as a project to Branch http://branch.qlik.com/projects/showthread.php?263-QlikView-UltraEdit

You'll be able to grab the latest version and all future versions from there as well as contribute if you like. As I'm not a big user of UltraEdit myself, if anyone wants to test future versions then that would be great.

Re: QlikView in UltraEdit

QlikView language definition for UltaEdit v2.0 has been release.

This version is a huge leap from the last release and so has been labelled as a new major release. Some of the new features include:

  • Missing keywords added including TABLES, FIELDS and UNTIL
  • Store statements, Qualify and Unqualify statements, info loads, mapping loads, join and keep statements are all now identified in the UltraEdit Function List
  • REM has been added as a block comment. Note, unlike QlikView, UltraEdit can't apply a REM comment only if it appears at the start of a line and thus REM comments will be highlighted wherever they appear.
  • Added UltraEdit templates for commonly used statements and code snippets including:
    •   Binary load
    •   Include statement
    •   Test script
    •   Environment variables
    •   Calendar script - Basic
    •   Calendar script - Basic - From Field
    •   Set statement
    •   Let Statement
    •   Script Header Comment
    •   Script Section Comment

As always, full instructions and download links can be found on the QlikView for UltraEdit page at http://www.qlikviewaddict.com/. Alternatively you can find them on branch.qlik.com or on GitHub.

  

If you have any ideas for other code templates or find any problems, let me know by leaving a comment or raising an issue on GitHub.

Regards

Matt
