#84 Cross-Linking and Override Tasks/Functions no work

Xinwei Gong

I used eclipse3.6.2 classic and java(TM)6 update24. Also test with eclipse3.6 and the same java version.
My OS is windowsXP.
And the test code is xbus example in ovm-2.1.1, just followed the guide in 'Getting Started with SVEditor', add ovm_pkg to library path and add compile_questa_sv.f to Argument Files.

Both of the have the same situation:
1.Macros can be identified normaly, that's good.
2.Outline view works good.
3.Cross-linking works good, that's fine.
4.Content Assist cannot work. When I typed a "." in a function, nothing happened but only an function completion error was reported.
5.Override Tasks/Functions cannot work. I cannot see any class in the poped menu.

    Just found that the Argument File cannot work if select it by filesystem, it can only work by reference it with ${workspace_loc}. The Argument File will effect the Macro check property.
    Filesystem path: L:\workspace\xgong\ovm-2.1.1\examples\xbus\examples\compile_questa_sv.f
    Workspace path:${workspace_loc}\xbus\examples\compile_questa_sv.f
    When use the 'Filesystem path', the ovm macros cannot be identified.
    My library path is "L:\workspace\xgong\ovm-2.1.1\src\ovm_pkg.sv" and I cannot change it workspace based path since it's not in workspace.
    Totaly, I use workspace based path for Argument file and file system path for Library Paths, and get 1,2,3 work file but 4,5(Content Assist,Override Tasks/Functions) failed.
    So SVEditor cannot work normaly in windows XP, is this true?

    Hi, mballance,

    With the help of zxcv I found that the content Assit cannot work is because of a hot key collision.
    But after update to use sveditor-0.4.1, the override/implement methods can even not pop the select menu. Is there anything wrong?

    This will be working (or should be better at least) in 0.6.12ea. Please give feedback on how it works. Hitting Ctrl-Space after the function name will drop down a template, and Ctrl-Space after a . will give port names if I remember correctly.
