hi!
my programs are getting longer, the number of lines of code in them is increasing. Therefore, I began to divide the programs into several parts: in one editor window I see the main program loop, in the second window the second part of the code with subprograms is displayed.

Question to the author BASCOM: can you make hot buttons to select the desired window?
If you remember how it was in Norton Commander or FAR: Alt-F1 and Alt-F2 (first and second window selection)

I started working with computers a long time ago, then computers did not have a mouse. So I'm used to working with the keyboard.


(BASCOM-AVR version : 2.0.8.1 )

When programs get very big I find the Project mode is good
you can divide it into multiple screens
Every sub program can be a separate window

One may remember also how it was in Turbo-Pascal, but that doesn't mean it's useful or in any way standard.

If you prefer keys, it's hard to understand why you don't know about the de facto standard Ctrl-Tab.
Works for your case of two open windows nearly as desired. Speed and ease of use is the same, some reprogramming of the cerebral cortex is sufficient.

1. File -> project -> new
2. Set check @ View -> Project files
3. In the Project view window click op add to add your files
4. Goto 3 until all done
5. File -> project -> save

If a change of habits is not your thing, then you actually need Mark to adapt Bascom to your habits.
Personally I prefer the first option.

actually, CTRL+F6 selects the next window. (that is normal windows behaviour)
and ALT+W followed by the window number (1,2) will select it direct.

fine! Smile
ps: Oh. My fingers alone do not reach. The left hand is on the keyboard, the right is on the mouse. To switch this combination CTRL+F6, i need to press different buttons with different hands.

Ah, just noticed, I wrote Shift-Tab, correct is Ctrl-Tab.
This can be easily done with the left hand.
Shift actually has some use in this context too, as together with Ctrl-Tab it lets you cycle the other way around through the tabs.
You need at least three tabs to notice.

it means you need to press ALT + W key at the same time. This will select the Window menu.
Then you press 1, 2 or what ever window you want to select.
