Hi cmdtower, I like your IDE, I may use it on my current project, A gaming/Graphics library That would make using Direct3D for 2d (by using actual 3d mesh objects as sprites rather than the old frame flipping method.) games as easy as using DirectDraw (I would hope to make it even easier than this!). I'll have to do more testing (How it handles large projects mainly), but so far, everything looks and functions really nice so far.

I thought I would bring to your attention a rare bug that can happen. When creating a .dll project I accidently mad the output file an file.exe instead of a file.dll. So, once again, I accidently ran the output file "file.exe" and windows gave me a "this file is not an valid win32 executable" error message. Cliking ok closes the error message and the mana ide shuts down, but still leaves its process in memory. Starting up task manager and clicking on the processes tab verifies this.

I checked this and was aware of possible conflicts. The file extension is just improper configuration and shouldn't cause a problem, even if wrong (windows just errors and says it can't run it). To insure that you don't accidentally run it as an .exe, make sure you choose "None" as your Execution Method. Then the run button is will be disabled, and you won't make the mistake again. It's all harmless. I give the end user plenty of flexibility in this regard, mostly cuz I have not implemented a tightly enforced project management scheme like you typically see in commercial IDEs.

Outside of that, I was not able to reproduce the rare condition you reported.
I am running XP SP2.

Cheers,
CMD

Hi cmdtower!

Your IDE is pretty good.
The design is very clean, it runs fast, the GUI is beatiful, the code highlighting is cool. You've done a pretty good work.
You came just in time. Fresh project looks pretty dead. An IDE like this for FASM will be great.

I have a few features requests:
* Add code completion. You could ask the author of RADASM if you can use his code for completion. (I only use RADASM instead of FASMW because of this feature. So it would make sence to use your IDE only if it has code completion.)
BTW, RADASM is pretty badly designed and ugly. If you you get this working, it will be the best IDE for FASM.

* Make it possible to search the Win32 API help file when hitting F1 over an API name.

Thanks Ozzy. I'm glad you like it Very Happy My goal was never to make compete with any other IDE. I only wanted to deliver a more friendly and useable version of Tomasz's FasmW.

Have you checked out http://www.manaedit.org ? It has a forum, etc.

It's now the official home for ManaIDE. I had wanted a subdomain off of flatassembler.net (like FreshIDE), but got no response - so voila the reason for the new domain.

Yes, all of the features you mentioned shall be (eventually) implemented.
I also want to incorporate an intelli-sense like capability as well.

Cheers,
CMD

Excellent point! I'll assign Ctrl-K for compile. I had intended to add that. Thanks for reminding me!

I am seriously considering changing the top banner altogether. But it's not a priority. Stay tuned.

Update:

I've added recent file support to the next release. Also, I'd appreciate it if you guys could start leaving your comments over the manaedit's forum so other future users can see the history there, instead of here.
