A Plugin For Monitoring the focusedObject

Knowing which object currently has focus can help you troubleshoot situations when messages aren’t being sent to the object you think should be getting them. I have a plugin I use called ReportTheFocusedObject which continually monitors the focusedObject and selectedField so that you can quickly determine which object is the target of messages.

You can download the plugin here.

Plugin: Script Format Helper

I often include Revolution code snippets in lessons that I create. Those lessons are most often delivered in HTML or PDF. In order to speed up the process of converting code to the appropriate format I created a plugin called “Script Format Helper” that does the following:

  1. Formats the selected text in the script editor using the Revolution script colorization functions
  2. Converts the script to another format like HTML or a PNG image.

Examples of HTML Snippets

Here is what some sample HTML output looks like without line numbers:

on mouseUp pMouseBtnNo
   if pMouseBtnNo is 1 then
      put "You colorized me!" into theMsg
      answer theMsg
   end if
end mouseUp

Here is what some sample HTML output looks like with line numbers:

    1on mouseUp pMouseBtnNo
    2   if pMouseBtnNo is 1 then
    3      put "You colorized me!" into theMsg
    4      answer theMsg
    5   end if
    6end mouseUp
