Overview
The code editor proposes several tools used to correct the code:
  • the automatic checker of the project elements,
  • the spelling checker for the comments and the character strings.
Automatic checker
When the name of a variable or element is not recognized, the popup menu of the code editor proposes a list of possible corrections. This list presents the name of the variables and/or project elements that may correspond.
For example:
No more typos, undeclared variable, etc.
Simply select the requested name.
Spelling checker
The spelling checker of the code editor detects the typos in:
  • the comments,
  • the strings used in the code (simple strings, multilingual messages, dialogs and multilingual strings).
The WLanguage functions and commands are recognized as orthographically correct.
