Lasso Syntax Module Features
The Lasso Syntax Module delivers two key features essential to speeding the
process of coding and troubleshooting, namely, syntax coloring and code
Syntax coloring allows Lasso developers to more easily view their Lasso
code. LDML tags, parameters, and values are each designated by differently
colored text when editing within source view. This makes it easier to
distinguish Lasso code from HTML.
Code completion makes it very easy to input LDML. As you begin typing the
beginning letters of a tag or parameter, a window pops up alongside your
code which contains an alphabetized listing of relevant LDML tag names.
Simply scroll to or select the full name, press return and the entire
construct is inserted. Given the logically grouped naming conventions
established for LDML, code completion makes it especially easy to view all
tags of a particular LDML tag group just by typing the first part of the
group name. For example, typing “Str” will show all tags in the “String”
Additional features include automatic parentheses balancing and parentheses
selection. When entering parenthetical expressions, typing the closing
parentheses will cause the open parentheses to be highlighted briefly so
that you can confirm that the opening and closing parentheses match. This
is useful when dealing with complex nested expressions to ensure your
parenthetical expressions are properly grouped. Also, double-clicking on
either parentheses will highlight the entire expression.
The Lasso Syntax Module will be available immediately upon the release of
Adobe GoLive CS via download on the Adobe Web site. Users will access the
link to download the Lasso Syntax Module directly off of the main site for
Adobe GoLive CS. The Lasso Syntax Module will be available via download at
no additional charge.
