Scripting Performance

Sep 20, 2009 at 2:35 PM

On the next release, I intend on improving the performance of the copy script functionality.  I think that this can be done by grabbing the selection and using it as an array, avoiding the performance hit of the application events that are fired when a cell is examined.  Finding better algorithms would be a good idea, most of what I have implemented uses brute force techniques.  I detest blocking the UI thread during script creating, although it will take a lot of work to marshal the content around to prevent the blocking. 

Other features that I have contemplated include, color coded syntax for the input box and rudimentary auto-help for tool-tiping parameters on functions and procedures.

The scripting performance has been vastly improved. Also, null values can be in the range to be scripted.
