#44 Parsing BibTeX files


A list of BibTeX entries should appear in the objects
tab. Under a folder called "Literature" and "Literatur".

This means to implement a bibtex parser. I guess,
another function similar to ParseLine in
CStructureParser would be ok. Needs to be called by the
function CStructureParser::Parse.

    The next version will have an additional tab which contains
    the BibTeX items.

    Hi, would just like to say a big thank you to all the developers of this great project. I am using it to build my PhD thesis and the new version (7.01) looks better than ever.

    Now that the bibtex parser has been implemented, it would be really nice to have an autocompletion feature to select them into the current citation. i.e.

    1. type "\cite{}"
    2. dropdown box appear which you can type into
    3. \cite{Rabi} suggests [Rabinner_1994_SeminalWork,Rabinner_2005_LaterWork,etc]
    4. User selects Rabinner_1994_SeminalWork to be inserted

    This is a feature which I found useful when I was using the old WinEdt program and think could be useful here as well. They also had the same type of thing for \ref{} commands aswell, it would keep a list of the current project's labels in memory and pop them up when you typed an empty reference, very handy.

    Doesn't the newest version already have the bibtex entries on a tab? I can see "Structure|Objects|Files|References" in my left hand panel, what I was refering to was a way for TC to guess which of the parsed bibtex entries you were trying to cite and fill in the rest for you...

    Maybe I should add it as a new feature request?

    This one is already closed.

    However, the next version will have a completion for bibtex entries similar to your idea.
