Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Today's update fixes the lockup when using OPTION LCDPANEL CONSOLE and trying to run the file manager.
It works but very slow.
A few other bug fixes.

Changes to the Linux version to fix a scrolling bug. Now the syntax short help (F1) doesn't work. I have  workaround but not finished yet.
The changes to the Linux versions might require some libraries downloaded.
There is an 'install.txt' file in the archive explaining the requirements.
There are also some desktop config files so you can have desktop shortcuts with icons if desired.
The text which appears in 'new' files can be edited and saved more easily.
No excuse for not starting every file with OPTION EXPLICIT and OPTION DEFAULT xxx

'Save for TBS' now saves mono and in code tags.
There is still a save for TBS in colour option.

The editor now has autocomplete for keywords. Saves lots of spelling mistakes.
Type the first 3 characters and a list appears. Select the item with up/down arrows or mouse click. TAB or double click to paste the selection.


Updates for Windows and Linux (but not RPI yet)

Hi Jim,

What is the envisioned way to "save" the MMCC config ?
I set up VGAmite, ttyACM0, 38400 then connect in MMCC. When I save this config, next power up it is not memorized.
Maybe it is the order in which I use MMEdit.

- I first start MMCC, config it, connect
- Then I start MMEdit, select picomite syntax, and open source file. Then upload and run.

Is this the preferred way of working ? (linux version)

I guess I found crash reason.
MMCC does not save device type.
Device allways micromite

I do need to complete more of the help files.



You need to specify 3 things.
Type of device, com port, and port speed (or TCPIP address and port number)

If you want to save the settings for your device, you have to give it a name - in my case it's called 'pico'
Then 'save settings' and it will be added to the next available device in the top row.

The last connected device is remembered so there should be no need to set it again if you only have one device.

@Volhout,
I will add a prompt for device name if you have left that box blank. On the Linux rendering, that is not obviously a box for entry. I think that was your problem. The inf files are located in the data sub-folder and need write permissions.

Also note the VGAmite refers to the original blackpill, a short-lived offering. In light of current naming, I will have to change that. The picomite selection also covers the VGA version on the pico because as far as MMEdit is concerned, they are the same.


Sorry about all the confusion.

Jim

I just discovered a bug which makes life very difficult. I will push an update through in a couple of hours.
Setting devices up will not work until then.

Website just updated with a few changes.

You are now prompted for  a nickname if the relevant box is vacant when saving connection settings in MMCC.

You are now warned if you attempt to connect when the specifications in MMCC are blank.

Settings text-boxes in MMCC Linux versions now white.

Bug preventing easy setting of device specs fixed.

For some reason... I can no longer issue a CTRL-C to break out of the running program on my picomite from MMCC.

I am using the latest portable version of MMCC and MMEDIT5 and MMEDIT5 is stuck minimized and won't open.  The previous version was working well.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  No clue why it's so different.

Gonna just do a WIPE and reinstall...

Well, that did it... complete removal and registry scrub and a re-install worked.

Was that using the ctrl-C button or directly from the terminal window?

If that happens again, a copy of MMEdit.inf and MMCC.inf would help me diagnose the problem.

With the portable version there is nothing much in the registry to clean. Even the installed version only has file association and uninstall info in the registry. Every thing else is in the inf files.

Windows does have a habit of 'remembering' things like last directory accessed etc.

yes.  got no response.

I guess it was my mistake... I had been using the "installer version" and uninstalled it. (it leaves stuff behind). Then I updated to the NEWEST installer version... and it started the "I'm going to stay minimized" and the MMCC was not working right either.

So then I tried portable... got the same behavior.

So I did a full clean-up and installed the "installer" version again.


After that, things seemed OK again... (though I lost my custom color scheme as a result).
