Editors IDEs





Development in most programming languages is frequently done with an editor or integrated development environment (IDE). An IDE is a software application that provide comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, build automation tools and a debugger. XCode, Visual Studio, Adobe Dreamweaver and Eclipse are some of the more popular development tools, but an editor or IDE can be anything from simple text editors to sophisticated programs.

My large 'C' language code is in Linux Server.

Which Linux Editor should I use to edit and navigate my source code?

I need to use powerful editor that has powerful source code navigation.  For example, from function call, one keystroke will navigate to function definition.  From 'C' source file, one keystroke will open the include file.

There should be comprehensive information to  learn the editor from book or other sources.

From windows computer, I telnet to Linux Server.  

The folder structure that contains my source code is in my home directory.

I have a large Windows desktop project written in C# using Visual Studio 2013 Pro. There are 8 datasets that connect remotely to a MySQL database. This code has worked for years. The connection string in the project string settings will connect just fine. When I open a dataset in designer view and attempt to add a new table clicking the "Query builder..." button it produces the error "The query builder failed. Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts." (attached screen shot). If I attempt to enter a query manually at the end of the wizard there is an error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" for a simple select statement.  

The only changes are MySql.Data updated from  6.7.4 to 6.10.4 via NuGet and .NET Framework went from 4 to 4.5.2 (to match the dependency of the new MySQL upgrade). I have checked the Machine.config file and the proper versions updated properly.

Another issue is after the upgrade I lost the designer.cs files to the datasets. I attempted to run the Custom Tool on each of the .xsd files for the datasets and get "the custom tool 'MSDataSetGenerator' failed. Failed to generate code. Object reference not set to an instance of an object." I think the two issues are related. I am pressed to get this fixed for release.

Error when custom tool is run.Successful test in string area.Error when attempting to add a table adapter.Manual entry of query.
Hi Experts,

Can anyone tell me a good SCSS compiler for Windows 7?  I do use Netbeans, but not to its full capacity. For example, I cannot use XDebugger, and frankly, my computer is not in good shape, but I need to get this project done.

The structure of my project will have multiple of sub-folders, and CSS files in most folders. So I will need the compiler to work with multiple SCSS files and know which CSS file to update.

I need to recover some data from an iPad, Passwords are not available. WinHex seems top be able to do the trick, but it cannot access the iPad. Is there a hex-editor that can do it?
I'm new to TFS. I have been using it for version control.  I wanted to take advantage of the bug/feature tracking, but it seems I can only create anew bug or feature for the entire "Repository Area"?

For example, I have repository $/Test   and under $/Test i have $/Test/MainProject   and $/Test/projectXYZ and $/Test/ProjectABC

All projects are part of the same main application, that is, projectXYZ is a class module for MainProject.

If I go to create a new bug task in TFS, it only allows me to select "$/Test" area.  I can't seem to find a way to tie the bug to a specific sub-folder in the repository, that is, a specific area of code?

Am I doing something completely wrong here?

(ps) I am not using Git for my repository, but TFS itself.

it seems that MS only release SQL server data tools for VS 2015 so that we can admin and develop even SSIS project within VS 2015, how about VS 2017?

it seems we don't have this option to develop SSIS package inside VS2017, am I right?
I have my code like below

i restarted my laptop still not working.

please advise
I'm new to, and using Git. I have my remotes/origin branch of "master" that contains all production-ready code.

From "master", I create a new local branch called "Bug Fixes".

When I try to push code changes in Bug Fixes back to "master", I get this error every time:

Error encountered while pushing to the remote repository: Not a valid reference 'origin/master'

Maybe I'm not using this correctly? Can someone please advise?

I have been told it's my default font that's broken.

Can anyone tell me how to change that?

Thank you.
I have submitted Selenium and Eclipse questions and they were never answered.  
There are many topics that are "Proposed."
My assumption is that EE does not have Experts for these topics.  Is my assumption correct?
Visual Studio 2015 is not letting me set breakpoint in javascript in code in front.

I am clicking on the left furiously and nothing happens. It just won't create the break point.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I have done this in the past, but it just hasn't worked lately.

I am using the visual debugger in PythonWin on a Windows 7 platform with Python 2.7.  I am not using pdb.  I'm trying to debug code written by someone else.  I have set some breakpoints and am stepping through the code.  There are some for-loop variables in the code.  As I go through the code I would like to see the changes to these values.  However, they don't seem to change.  If I execute a print in the Interactive Window I see the correct value.  But all I see in the list of values in the visual debugger is the initial value.

Is there something I need to do to get the variables to refresh every time they are updated?

Any help would be much appreciated.  There is not a lot of documentation on the PythonWin visual debugger which is easier/quicker to use than pdb ... if I knew how to use it!  ;-)


I have created a simple app just showing a JFrame with a button.

But when starting it I get an error that I can not run the self signed app ("Security Settings block execution of self signed app")

I have added the path to the jarjnlp file to the java control panel exception list (various versions with forward, backward slashes etc) but no success.

How can I run that application?

I had/have Eclipse Neon 2 installed.  I then "had" to install IntelliJ.  When I installed IntelliJ I gave it a separate workspace path.
I installed IntelliJ because I want to learn it, yet at the moment I need to do my work on Eclipse Neon2.
It appears that Intellij has invaded the workspace of Eclipse Neon2.
I do not want to uninstall IntelliJ.  So what might be an easy fix?
Or do I need to uninstall IntelliJ?
Hi everybody.
I'm new to Java and I'm playing with a small project, just to start. Using Netbeans IDE, I wanted to import org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils, so I followed following steps:

1) right click on Libraries node in Projects panel
2) choosen Add JAR/Folder
3) added commons-lang3-3.5.jar file downloaded from Apache site
4) run the project (everything's fine)
5) Clean & build to create my small jar file

Then I used jSmooth to convert the jar file to a Windows executable and after some test I activated the debug option and there I saw that  I had this error:
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/lang3/StringUtils

Open in new window

Netbeans doesn't raise any error at all but conversion makes the exe raise that error and the code after the line where StringUtils is used is not executed...

Any idea?
Thank you for any help :)

If i am to choose between Visual Studio Pro of Microsoft and KOMODO IDE of ActiveState.  which is one would be a better IDE based on your experience. price should not be a factor.
I'm used to building any C++ projects in Visual Studio, but I'm taking an online course and I need a generic gcc compiler, so I'm using Eclipse.

I added the C++ add-on to Eclipse (Kepler for Java), and I now have C++ projects in my projects menu.  However, the standard header files for C++ are not automatically in my path.  I found iostream, and so I manually added the include path:

D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\crt\src

Should these be in the Visual Studio path?  Doesn't Eclipse have it's own version of the files?  The problem is that 'std' is not recognized by Eclipse.  Is that in an include file?  I expected that to be part of the compiler, but I can't find any files that fit.  While I found iostream, vector and many others cannot be found.  Eclipse doesn't recognize 'vector', the std namespace and size_t.  And the whole project only has 44 lines of code so far!

Where are all the standard header/other files supposed to be for Eclipse to finish building my C++ project?

My Outlook vbaproject.Otm file has dozens of modules and classes. I want to export them periodically for a another project I am working on.

I found bunches of code that will automate export for Excel modules, but no luck for Outlook.

I even found a 2004 post from the famous Sue Mosher saying she did it manually when needed.

I have a solution but it requires several manual steps, but I hope somebody has an easier way.

My solution is to use Outlook IDE control P then selected Code and "Current Project". Setup used "Microsoft Print to PDF" with 11x15 landscape (long lines of code won't split).  

I also tried "print to file" but that did not seem to work.

After creating the 298 page PDF, I opened it with Foxit Reader and Saved as TXT.

The resulting TXT looks pretty good and a simple program could create multiple BAS modules. But before I do that I want to see if anybody here has already done something similar.

Each of my TXT pages start with 4 lines that look like this:

----------------------- Page 148-----------------------  top line has the PDF's page number
                                                                          2nd line is always blank.
mdlMicrosecondTimer - 8                                  3rd line has the module's name and page number
                                                                         4th line is always blank.

i wonder what are differences between sorce folder and folder in eclipse. When to use which one. please advise
I am trying to learn JavaFX, and one of the very important controls, TableView is not displaying correctly, even though it compiles and runs without errors:

public class TableViewDemo extends Application {
    // You need to make a list of objects for the tables, and then convert them into ObservableList
    // (Objects -> ObservableList -> Table)
    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        // This is the entire table:
        TableView table;
        // (At least one column defined)
        // Name column:
        TableColumn<Product, String> nameColumn = new TableColumn<>("Name");  // Name column header is passed in constructor
        nameColumn.setMinWidth(200);  // If not specified all the columns are bunched together
        nameColumn.setCellValueFactory(new PropertyValueFactory<Product, String>("name"));
