MakaPakaTobyHannah Posted February 28, 2020 Report Share Posted February 28, 2020 I recently developed an insane script of about 4,000 lines (ca. 80 pages) converting abstruse musical input code into a completely different language. I will make a video of that at some point and post it on YouTube. Anyway: of course, I use text boxes as stops copiously to debug my scripts. I wish there were a preference setting with which to color code certain items; I color code all my text boxes dark blue background, bright yellow text font. Annoying to have to do that individually each time. In a script of 4,000 lines, it is often necessary to activate a bunch of text boxes to find out where the error occurs. When a text box finally displays a faulty message, I know that somewhere before that text box, the error occurs. In a script of thousands of lines, and multiple text boxes displaying, how to you know where that particular text box is located? I have come to put line numbers at the top of all my debugging text boxes. But when the code then changes (additions or deletions), those line numbers are then off. Can you all confirm that, in fact, there is no way to put some kind of integer variable into a text box that identifies the line number of the text box? I think that would be cool to have. Cheers.
