#7 request : autoexpand and cursor location update


First, thank you for this program, it's a good piece of software.
I first used FunctionList but it did'nt work with custom language (and i want to use tags with Pro*C language).
so i finally use SourceCookifier wich works nicely, but miss one feature of FunctionList (just one i think)

In FunctionList, man can set a category to "autoexpand" and after that when you put the cursor on one line, the function in which you are positionned is highlighted, that's very convenient to see where you are located in your code.

Is it possible to add this feature to Source Cookifier ?



I join a screen capture, showing that i clicked on "d_lire_fac" function but then move the cursor upper to the previous function (d_lire_dev_soc) but the SourceCookifier window still highlight the "d_lire_fac" function.

    there IS such a feature in SourceCookifier, you probably didn't notice it yet?
    Right click in the treeview > Track caret > and then check your [Fonctions] item.
    Then the treeview highlighting should correctly follow the cursor.

    Ok thank you.
    Indeed, there is this setting :) and I was wondering what was its use and now I know, thanks.
    But, there seems to be a small bug when the category set with "Track Caret"=yes is not the first category.
    In my example, I have the category "Includes" in the first position set with "track caret"=no, and the category "functions" in second positions with "Track Caret"=yes and it's the first category that tracks the caret.

    Anyway, i change my settings to fix this but I just wanted to let you know about this.

    So your program is almost perfect :) Thanks.

    Yep, I know about that problem, but I can't change it at the moment.
    If you're tracking multiple tag types, than the order is important..
