Hi!

I'd love to know if anyone have sucessfully used VSCode. Right now I use it as a mere 'enhanced text editor', but I'd like to use it in all i'ts glory (step by step debug, proper Lite-C symbol resolving and all that stuff).

Can anyone tell me about his/her experience?
Thanks!

If you know how to debug any DLL in visual studio, you know exactly what to expect. It works pretty well.

But this would only work if you are using C++ and not Lite-C I am assuming?

Correct.

To be clear, I am referring to this:
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/dlls.htm

Combine this with knowledge on how to use C++ with VSCode:
https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/languages/cpp

...anyways, C++ is a first-class citizen in the original Visual Studio, but VSCode also works well as a C++ debugger.

Okay, I see the point.

It is possible to compile a DLL in VSCode (to avoid jumping from VS to VSC all the time)? Maybe that question is out of the scope of this forum, but if anyone knows...

Thank you all!

The compiler is the Visual C++ Compiler. Both VS and VSCode can act as frontends for the compiler.

So yes, but technically no. laugh

Is anyone using VSCode for Zorro development after 2 years? Maybe someone have made snippets with Zorro's dictionary and willing to share?

I use VSCode, but just as IDE. Somehow I find it more convenient than Notepad++ and I could switch to Python environment quickly.

VSCode is an amazing open source editor. In my opinion, the best currently available.
It would be great if JCL support somehow some integration of Zorro to VSCode (snippets, function definitions, debugging, etc). Maybe a Zorro extension for VSCode?

I am quite happy using VSCode for Zorro, and the auto-completion ("Intellisense"), function definition (F12) etc. all work out of the box (with C/C++ extension), no configuration or snippet definition needed. (No debugging, though, of course, because VSCode does not have a Lite-C runtime.) If you put "#include <default.c>" at the top of your file, VSCode will pick up all of the definitions.
