Is a basic "Undo" feature planned for the .js editor/notepad in Bl (Antoine Lafontaine) - 2/6/2008 2:39 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: Antoine Lafontaine


    I've looked a little bit through the threads without finding any usefull 
    information on the topic...
    
    I've recently started using Expression Blend 2 (December Preview) to test 
    out what was possible with it and I ended up being a bit frustrated by the 
    lack of (what I thought as basic) an undo function in the (basic) .js editor 
    screen. 
    
    Although someone might argue that using Visual Studio (or any other external 
    editor) would solve this issue, I felt I would really like to have at least 
    that feature included when working on small to medium sized projects where 
    Visual Studio feels too much (and I am more on the designer side of things 
    although I do my share of coding). 
    
    I would like to know if this is a feature that is planned to be included in 
    the final release (and undo is supported in the XAML editing window) or we'll 
    have to rely on an external editor (VStudio or other).
    
    Thank you for your time.

    Yes, this should work when we get closer to shipping the product - this was 
    a bug. In Expression Blend 2 Beta due shortly, undo and redo will work in 
    the JavaScript editor but we still have a few bugs to fix.

    I'm almost glad to hear it was a bug and not an overlooked feature. 
    Looking forward to the beta release.
    
    Thank you for the fast reply!
