The Perl regular expression search strings in your syntax highlighting wordfile are only for the Function List
view (German: Funktionsliste
) and are not used by IntelliTips or Ctags.
There is the configuration setting Use function tips data (if available) for function list
(German: Funktionstipps-Daten für Funktionsliste verwenden, falls vorhanden
at Auto-complete - IntelliTips - Function tips
(German: Autovervollständigung - IntelliTipps - Funktionstipps
) to control if the strings found by the regular expression search strings in the used syntax highlighting wordfile(s) are displayed in the Function List
view or the functions from the IntelliTips symbol parser. The functions found by the Ctags symbol parser can be never displayed in the Function List
view. So the user should not make use of this configuration setting if an UEStudio project is opened which is configured to use the Ctags parser instead of the integrated InteliiTips parser of UEStudio.
"Menu Search >> Icon Search F11" is an indication for me that you are using the toolbar/menu mode with traditional menus with menu Suchen
) with menu item Symbol suchen
(English: Find symbol
). This command is for searching for the symbol at current caret position in active file in the symbol database created by Ctags. This command fails for that reason to find any symbol on using the IntelliTips symbol parser and not the Ctags symbol parser for a project.
(English: Class viewer
of your screenshot shows me that in your case is used the integrated IntelliTips symbol parser and not Ctags which both support Pascal/Delphi. So you are using the wrong command to go to the definition of a symbol. You have to use the command Find symbol definition in project files
. This command was never in any menu. It can be only executed by hotkey/chord or by clicking on the last symbol in the IntelliTips toolbar with the tooltip Sucht Symbol-Definitionen in Projektdateien
in German UEStudio. Click in menu Ansicht
) in submenu Ansichten/Listen
) in submenu Symbolleisten
(English: Symbol lists
) on the menu item INTELLITIP
since UES v2022.1.0.90) to get this toolbar visible on not already displayed in the toolbars area.
The two commands to find a symbol definition in Ctags symbol database as well as in IntelliTips database are both available in the key mapping
- Command Find symbol with the description Find symbol in Ctags file has key F11 assigned by default.
- Command Find symbol definition in project files with the description Find symbol definition in project files has key Alt+Ctrl+F12 assigned by default.
In German UEStudio the two commands are in configuration settings (Tastenzuordnung
) in the commands list:
- Symbol suchen with the description Symbol in Tag-Datei suchen also with key F11 assigned by default.
- Sucht Symbol-Definitionen in Projekdateien with the description Sucht Symbol-Definitionen in Projektdateien has also key Alt+Ctrl+F12 assigned by default.
So you have to use Alt+Ctrl+F12
to go the definition of a symbol as found by the IntelliTips parser as used by you for your UEStudio projects or click on the symbol of this command on the IntelliTips toolbar.
PS: I know that some translations from English to German are not really good for a native German. The translation company used by Idera, Inc. and former by IDM Computer Solutions, Inc. has not the deep knowledge of UltraEdit and UEStudio as I have to make the translations better which is sometimes really hard. I have already the file uestudio.lng
in German UEStudio program files directory with 179 different (blocks of) changes made by me. I can share that file public for German users of UltraEdit and UEStudio v2022.1.0.100 (uedit32.lng and uedit64.lng are identical with uestudio.lng) if there is an interest. I have not yet translated all the HTML Tidy strings added with UE/UES v2022.1.0.90, but that is on my to do list for the next weekends.
