Event Handler Settings: Editing

Use the Editing tab in the Event Handler Settings dialog box to configure the source code editor you want to use for creating or modifying event handlers.

This setting is stored in the Windows registry as a per-user setting.

Note: Other properties for event handling can be stored in properties files.

Specify the command to launch the editor whenever you choose to edit source code for a script. Host Integrator searches for the presence of common Java editors and selects it as the source code editor if one is found. Otherwise, a text editor is selected as the default.

Click Browse to locate the executable for a source code editor.

Default Java editor

    "C:\Program Files\TextPad 4\TextPad.exe" "%p"

Command Syntax
