I introduced a Ctrl+Up/Down for scroll up/down (without moving the cursor) of 1 unit and Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down for the same but for 1 page.

Also Ctrl+Mousewheel scrolls now also up/down of 1 page (inspired by Delphi 6 IDE)

But most proud am I of the "toggle comment lines" feature which allows to toggle comments of all selected lines at the selected position. Here toggle means "insert ';' char into line if not already present, and delete char if it already were a ';' char". This, I think, is very a handy feature!

Has anyone an opinion about this? I give it the shortcut keys

Ctrl+VK_DECIMAL since unfortunately Ctrl+';' doesn't work Sad
(must be Win32 message handling)

Take a look at the provided "ASMEDIT.INC" file (in main FasmW's directory)
(search for toggle_comment and mousewheel)

Please notice me if any bugs

okasy, I discovered a bug in my "toggle comment" feature, but I atached a fixed version of asmedit.inc. The bug occured if some larger amount of longer lines were comment toggled. (has something to do with 248+8 byte editor structure). I simple used caret_line instead of caret_line_number for all performed row comparisions what resulted in wrong comparisions sometime because next(caret_line) is not always > current(caret_line),
but next(caret_line) > current(caret_line) works.

I also changed the shortcut key from Ctrl+CK_DECIMAL to Ctrl+T because Ctrl+VK_DECIMAL only works if Num-lock is activated, while Ctrl+T do always work.

Another thing: wouldn't it be wise to rather introduce block-comments into fasm instead of using a "toggle comment" feature? Like in PASCAL or C language!

But the problem is, that I have no idea what kind of special character Fasm should use since most ones are already used by other syntax elements.

But reserved words for comments tend to be too long. Maybe something like ";_" and "_;" would go? (looks a bit strange)

What's your opinion, Privalov?

perhaps? I don't know so exactly. I guess we should start a poll for it?!

Matrix, do you think the "paste bug" in FasmW is critical? It crashes under certain circumstances. Lokk at "IDE Development > Bug in FasmW's paste"

i recomend /* coment block */ from C
cause macros use {} from pascal there is an alterative:
comment {i 'm a comment block}

I found another bug. It occurs if a comment is toggled on a single line with
an empty selection. The IDE would crash in this case. Luckily, this bug
is fixed now in the attached version of "ASMEDIT.INC".

I simply wrote
Code:
ja      toggle comment    

somewhere instead of
Code:
jae     toggle_comment
