This is a fork of Scintilla to add white-space padding to the text
displayed in calltips. The default Scintilla uses 1 pixel for the horizontal and
vertical padding and 5 pixels for the inset. You can try how the look improves when
setting the horizontal padding to 2 pixels and the vertical one to 5 pixels.
# Set extra horizontal whitespace padding within the call tip borders. set void CallTipSetPaddingX=2214(int horiz,) # Set extra vertical whitespace padding with set void CallTipSetPaddingY=2215(int vert,) # Set the left horizontal inset for the call set void CallTipSetInsetX=2216(int horiz,)
The project is available in the folder
vcbuild. Necessary files are built to the
target directory of the solution you added the project to. The original batches
delbin have been updated.
I recommend you placing sources of SciTE next to Scintilla's and build both
using the MS VS solution (
.sln file) from SciTE. You should clone them this way (to
the same directory):
hg clone -b padded_calltips http://hg.code.sf.net/u/prantl/scintilla scintilla hg clone -b padded_calltips 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 branch
vcbuild contains the vanilla Scintilla with the MS VS
project and no other changes. (Other branches contain additional changes.) Se also the
README.md in the SciTE repository for the building instructions.
README to learn how to build and use the original Scintilla. You can build this
branch the traditional way too.
