Displaying calltips on mouse hover for SciTE

This is a fork of SciTE to make calltips show up when you dwell with the mouse
cursor above a keyword described in the loaded API-file. It uses the standard property
dwell.period; you can set it to 500 (milliseconds).

#calltip.on.dwell=0

How to build it

This branch is based on the branch vcbuild which makes the development with the
Microsoft Visual Studio easier by adding projects (.vcxproj files) and
a solution (.sln file).

I recommend you placing SciTE's sources next to sources of Scintilla and
build both using the MS VS solution file from SciTE. You should clone them this way
(to the same directory):

hg clone -b vcbuild http://hg.code.sf.net/u/prantl/scintilla scintilla
hg clone -b calltip_dwell http://hg.code.sf.net/u/prantl/scite scite

If you choose different name than scintilla you'll have to update the solution for
building SciTE. The branches vcbuild contain the vanilla Scintilla and SciTE with the
MS VS projects and solution and no other changes. (Other branches contain additional
changes.) The project and solution files are available in folders vcbuild:

  • scintilla\vcbuild
  • scite\lua\vcbuild
  • scite\vcbuild

The solution file to build both Scintilla and SciTE is in the folder scite\vcbuild.
You can open it, hit F5 and start debugging. Necessary files are built and copied
to scite\vcbuild\Debug or scite\vcbuild\Release.' If you want to create a package
(.zip file) for the binary distribution, you can use zipvcscite or zipvcscited.
The original batches zipsrc and delbin have been updated.

See README to learn how to build and install the original SciTE. You can build this
branch the traditional way too.
