Select a word/statement: Nice Little Development Goody


I don't know how they did it but my colleague (whos blog I can only recommend :-)) pointed me to a new tiny small possibility in the DEV environment that was added in a recent Cumulative Update. Let's not hold it from you...

When we want to select a word in any text editor like Word, Notepad, or even Visual Studio, what we do is double click that word. But what happened in C/SIDE if I want to select the "OnBeforePostDocument" (to copy or whatever) in this codeunit 80:


The entire line was selected. The only way to select the word was to manually drag your mouse and do a perfect timing of clicking and releasing.

In the newest build (I think from CU5, but definitely in CU6) this is what happens:


Exactly what you would expect in any kind of text editor.

"A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind"

Or let's not exaggerate, it's just nice :-). It's also where it stops being "nice". What still doesn't work:

  • Selecting a piece of text with the ALT-key doesn't work (did you ever try that in Word? THAT would be awesome in a DEV environment!)

  • Selecting from the middle of one line to the middle of the next line just selects the two entire lines

  • Select a word by double clicking it and try to select the entire next word...not happening. It should select word-by-word the next ones.

  • ...

But still...let's not look a gift horse in the mouth :-)
