Comment Bug

Hi,
Sometimes when i open a project, the KIDE replace the uppercase word with lowercase word. This occur when the word is equal to a program name and i think happen when i open a project that was not write with KIDE. As you can see in the image the word "TEST" and "M_MOVE" are uppercase but in are lowercase.

Thank you.
AV

Hi,
that is not a bug in K-IDE.

The robot controller stores all identifiers (like programs and variables) in lowercase whereas the keywords (like commands and functions) are written in uppercase. It doesn't matter how you write your variable and program names in your editor or in K-IDE. K-IDE uses a "trick" to allow mixed case identifier names: it stores the variable and program names in the project documentation and when loading the AS data from the robot, K-IDE translates the naming back to your chosen mixed case. Of cause no other software does this translation, so if you open the program in a normal editor, you'll get what the controller generates when downloading the AS data.

Hi,
Sorry maybe I didn't explain myself, the words that are replaced are in the comments of the program. I know that inside the robot the variables and programs are all lower case, but in the comments it should stay as I write them and not made lowercase because they are equal to a variable or a program.

Thank you

Dear Alessio,

sorry for my misunderstanding! You are right, comments should never be modified. I will check that in the sources.
