The making of TSW WebCoder 2013 part 8 – Scripting IntelliSense

September 6, 2012

In the previous blog post we talked about the new scripting support with JavaScript syntax, which allows you to extend the functionality of the upcoming WebCoder. Scripting is a really powerful tool, but unfortunately it has previously been a bit hard to learn and use, because you had to use an unfamiliar syntax AND use a class library (.NET) that you likely didn't know.

With WebCoder 2012, we hope to solve the first problem by changing the syntax to JavaScript and the second one with scripting IntelliSense. That's right, writing scripts in WebCoder 2012 just got a whole lot easier. Here's a couple of screenshots that will demonstrate just how cool it is.

 

script_intellisense_allround

The all-round IntelliSense, with JavaScript objects and methods, .NET namespaces and classes and WebCoder classes and methods.

 

script_intellisense_members

Member IntelliSense, in this case for a .NET string, showing the available methods and properties.

script_intellisense_paramhint

Parameter hints, in this case for the Substring method on the .NET String class.

As you can see, you will now get a lot of help when you write scripts in WebCoder, making it a lot easier to use all the powerful features from the .NET class library as well as the internal functionality of WebCoder. Hope you like it :)
