Send text from console script back to editor

  • Anonymous - 2012-04-05

    I am trying to write a script which would send some formatted text back to the editor.  It would effectively be something like a commonly used comment block with a preloaded project number and change number today's date and place the cursor at the  correct place in the comment block.   

    However I have experimented with SCI_SENDMSG SCI_ADDTEXT  @""  … but have not been able to write to the string buffer is  it possible???

    See NppExec Manual, section 3.8.4.
    Also 4.6.3 and 4.6.6 may be useful.
