I've released a new major update (version 1.0) with the following improvements:
- Improved code section folding
- Added missing "GROUP BY" keyword
- Auto-completion of all keyworods and functions
- Subroutines and LOAD statements supported in the UE function list
- Other performance improvements
As before, download links and instructions available here http://www.qlikviewaddict.com/p/qlikview-ultraedit.html
Just added a blog post on how to use the Function List within UltraEdit when working with QlikView script files http://www.qlikviewaddict.com/2013/06/tthe-ultraedit-function-list-with.html
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.
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.
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
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.
A new version of the QlikView UltraEdit Wordfile has been released to correct some minor issues. Version 2.1 contains the same fixes as the Notepad++ version as follows:
- Added the missing keyword "IN"
- Added the missing function "filelist()"
- Other minor code improvements.
As always, full instructions and download links can be found on the QlikView for UltraEdit page on QlikViewAddict.com or on Branch. A new version of my QlikView Web Highlighter to follow soon including an update to the QlikView for WordPress plugin.
