Save/Delete Single API Macro in Buffer
CodeWright® - API Macro - Royalty Free -
Save/Delete Single API Macro in Buffer.
The CodeWright Tools | API Macros... allows the editing and execution of CodeWright API macros from within a dialog.
This function provides an alternative that dialog box and allows you to use all the capabilities of CodeWright to develop your macro just like any other document. When you are done, simply execute this function to save the document to the system repository (cwright.mac). In addition, you can delete the macro from the repository.
There are two options to this function: save and delete:
Invoke tlaComment to update the date/time stamp in the file (if present) and then write the macro to the macro repository (cwright.mac). The macro name used is from the header as described below.
Delete the macro from the macro repository (cwright.mac). If the macro is not present in the repository, nothing occurs. The macro name used is from the header as described below.
This facility is most useful if you establish two buttons that are assigned to "Save" and "Delete".
The tlaMDE Dynamic Link Library provides a robust superst of the capabilities in tlaMacro. It operates on multiple macros in the buffer, and supports compilation, execution, and fetching.
