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 (single strings, multilingual messages, dialogs and multilingual strings).
The WLanguage functions and commands are recognized as orthographically correct.
Which spelling checker is used?
The spell checker used is the spell checker delivered with WINDEV/WEBDEV/WINDEV Mobile.. This spelling checker can be used:
  • for comments (in French or English, depending on the language used for the code).
  • for multilingual channels in French and English.
See Check spelling based on Hunspell dictionaries for more details.
The spelling checker is enabled by default.
