Modify List of Tag Reminders

  • Advertisement ( why? )

    Chami,
    I looked because you always seem to be several steps ahead in thinking
    of anything and everything ---- is there a way to add more to the list
    of tags that appear as 'tag reminders'? (I think it is tag reminder or
    could be auto complete.) What I am looking for is a way to expand on
    the tags that surface with the typing of < . Why? in HTML5 there are
    some new tags, over 30 and some worth while to use. Such as <header>,
    <section>,

    <

    aside>, <footer> etc. These and similar tags with the
    corresponding closing tag would really be nice. Inclusion of these new
    tags would be most helpful. The entry of the closing tag upon entry of
    the opening tag is very important, at least to me.

        Woohoo! Thanks Chami. I knew you already had something that I just
        could not find. Watched it twice and have made notes. Now to see if I
        got right.

        You da man.

        Chammi,
        Was a fairly easy task to include all the new tags into the tag
        reminder. But I've a question which I probably would know if I knew
        scripting. What actions do the 'fields=1' and 'movecursor=1' provide?
        But first, this is one of the reminders I entered:

        @begin-s "figcaptionc" [fields=1, movecursor=1]

        <figcaption class="{{-class}}">{{-content}}</figcaption>

        @end-s "figcaptionc"

        In the HTML, it performs correctly with
        <figcaption class="class"></figcaption>. The cursor waiting at the
        enclosed in quotation marks class. After entering the class, the tab
        jumps the cursor to the end on the closing tag. I was thinking that it
        would land between to provide for the {{-content}}.

        Please enlighten me on this. And once I have it ready for use, do I
        export it to import at another computer? Would you wish to have it for
        other to use?

          reminder. But I've a question which I probably would know if I knew

          provide?

          Although you can use JS scripting in HTML-Kit plugins, Shorthand/plugin
          syntax is its own thing so you're not really missing anything.

          So fields=1 tells it to handle {{...}} fields. Otherwise they're treated
          as plain text. movecursor=1 moves edit position to "|" (unless there are
          {{-...}} fields).

          But first, this is one of the reminders I entered:

          @begin-s "figcaptionc" [fields=1, movecursor=1]

          <figcaption class="{{-class}}">{{-content}}</figcaption>

          @end-s "figcaptionc"

          In the HTML, it performs correctly with
          <figcaption class="class"></figcaption>. The cursor waiting at the
          enclosed in quotation marks class. After entering the class, the tab
          jumps the cursor to the end on the closing tag. I was thinking that
          it would land between to provide for the {{-content}}.

          Your snippet looks good. Try adding some default content to the field as
          a placeholder. Here "Block Content" becomes the prompt or hint, and
          "foo" becomes the default value:

           {{-content|Block Content|foo}}
          

          Quick hint: if you remove "-" from field names like {{-content}} and
          {{-class}} it'll bring up a dialog box to enter those fields.

          Please enlighten me on this. And once I have it ready for use, do I
          export it to import at another computer? Would you wish to have it
          for other to use?

          Charles

          Yes, you can use export/import plugin options on the Shorthand Manager
          to move custom plugins. If you'd like to share with others, please feel
          free to post it to the plugins page using "HTML-Kit Plugins > Shorthand

            After reading this conversation, and also have done some snippets, we notice that there is a relatively hidden powerful tool. I think sometime you could give us more generous documentation, we appreciate it...

              Hi Rodrigo,

              In addition to the video:

              http://www.htmlkit.com/blog/tagsreminder-adding-snippets/

              there's more information on this page:

              http://www.html-kit.com/support/tools/custom-actions/

              And of course I'll be glad to answer any specific questions.

              Developing and supporting HTML-Kit is and has always been a matter of
              love for me but I have to manage time doing other things to pay the
              bills. So unfortunately documentation suffers because in my mind time
              spent coding feels more productive/rewarding than writing manuals. I'll
              _ try _ to do more targeted write ups down the road, though my record on
              this isn't very good. If I'm ever in a position to afford a tech writer,
              comprehensive documentation will be the first priority which I'd image
              would take several months of work.
