ok so im making an IDE for FASM(for windows, could be easily ported to linux how ever as im using Qt) i was wondering what would be a good default format. also wondering on any feed back as to features it should have.

i would like to know what you think a good format(font/color/size/bold/italicized/underlined/ect...) for all of the following would be, if you think somthing should not be highlighted then say so

Operators [,],*,+,-,ect...

Keywords push, mov, add, ect... (there are only 250 or so right now, no SEE, MMX, AVX, just major instructions)

FASM stranded macros proc,endp,local,invoke,ect.. (not sure weather or not these should be highlighted)

Coments and thing after a semi-colon

Double Quoted Strings "this is a double quoted string"

Single Quoted String 'this is a single quoted string'

Intgers 160707, 12393, 10, 111123, ect...

Floating Point Numbers 1013.123132, 436463.12341 , 191.1, ect...

please include any features you would like to see, i will post it and source code for it when i'm done Smile

Don't fix the colours, everyone has their own preferences. Jut make it so the user can select whatever colours they want.

that is why i asked for a default theme, I'm making it so that you can chose font(including things like size, bold, italicized, underlined) and color of each of the listed items. just wondering on a default theme.

I doubt that it matters. Just do what you like and as long as others can change things to their own liking then everything will be fine.

alright sounds good, what about features? it can open multiple files in separate tabs, compile with out using command line, compile and run, allow users to choose syntax highlighting (i'm working on that now). just some things you would like to see.

Maybe something like the "Find Implementation" functionality of some HLLs IDEs would be useful. Something that will search the current file and all includes for labels, macros, and procs and list their params when calling them and provide an option to show the implementation of the macro or proc or the location of a global label. That, and an integrated debugger.

Of course I'll never use any of this. I barely ever code in asm anymore. But I like these features in my C/C++ IDEs.

ishkabible: I think you are jumping the gun a bit here. I would suggest you get the basic design working first and post it here for others to test and find bugs and generally give feedback. Then gradually move towards adding advanced features later.

alright, the basic version is almost done that's why i was asking. i think revolution is right now that he says it. a good workable foundation would be a good thing to have.
