JavaScript Editor - Helps you write JavaScript Code (and lots more!)

The current version of jsEditor is Version: 2.0431. All users should download this version. Existing registered users should download this version. The 2004 in the name relates to the version number. The first version of jsEditor was released in 1998.

To be frank, the most useful feature of jsEditor is the Find Bar. Unlike a regular find which finds the items in sequence, all the matches are shown in the find bar in context. If you type "function", you get a list of all the functions on your page. If you type a variable name you can see all instances of the variable. It is particularly useful when renaming variables or checking whether one variable has been typed in the wrong case.

Another feature enables you to get a list of all the functions in your page, and in linked pages (.js files) by clicking F6. This is used to call functions, say from an "onclick" event. If you are like me, you will have forgotten the exact name of your functions, especially those in .js files. So this feature is extremely helpful.

The utility, Find in Files enables you to search the current directory or subdirectories for text, and obtain a list of files. You can open these files in jsEditor by double-clicking on them. You can also save the file list for later use.

You can also Find Files using jsEditor. The advantage of this over the Windows' find files is that the files can be loaded directly into jsEditor, and the find is probably faster. You can, of course, use wild cards in your search.

Code Helper is a popup windown which gives you hints on adding code, particularly on spelling. A number of changes have been made: code helper is now more intelligent and which finds names and IDs in your document. For existing users, I suggest that you back up your 'data' and 'code' directories if you have made changes, or install the new version in a new directory, otherwise your new code may be overwritten   (:-/.

Convert rich text to HTML, and find between markers. Find Between Markers enables you find text between two 'markers' such as start text and end text. Very useful when updating pages and finding old repeated code or text..
