Get Friend File

Macro that opens the corresponding .h / .cpp file (i.e. if fnurt.h is active it opens fnurt.cpp and vice verca) and works best if used via a accelerator key (using Alt-1 myself).

Quite lo-tech but useful never the less.


Sub GetFriendFile()
'DESCRIPTION: Opens the corresponding .h / .cpp file

 currentFileName = Application.ActiveDocument.FullName
 newFileName = ""

 if (Ucase(Right(currentFileName,2))=".H") then
   newFileName = Left(currentFileName,Len(currentFileName)-2)+".CPP"
 elseif (Ucase(Right(currentFileName,4))=".CPP") then
   newFileName = Left(currentFileName,Len(currentFileName)-4)+".H"
 end if

 if newFileName<>"" then Application.Documents.Open newFileName

End Sub

    newFileName = ""

    if (Ucase(Right(currentFileName,2))=".H") then
    newFileName = Left(currentFileName,Len(currentFileName)-2)+".CPP"
    elseif (Ucase(Right(currentFileName,4))=".CPP") then
    newFileName = Left(currentFileName,Len(currentFileName)-4)+".H"
    end if

    on error resume next
    if newFileName <> "" then
    Application.Documents.Open newFileName
    if (err <> 0) then
    msgbox "Error opening corresponding file - " & err.description
    end if
    end if

    'DESCRIPTION: Closes all editor windows except the current one.

    'Windows.Item(1) is always the currently active window. So to close all
    ' the windows except the active one, keep looping until there is no

    do while Windows.Count > 1
    Windows.Item(2).Close(dsSaveChangesPrompt)
    Loop
    End Function


    Sub IsolateAndSplit()
    'DESCRIPTION: A description was not provided.
    CloseExceptActive ()
    fname= ActiveDocument.FullName
    s = Split(fname,".")
    preext =s(0)
    ext = s(1)

    if ext="cpp" Then
    alt=preext&".h"
    Else
    alt=preext&".cpp"
    End if

    Documents.Open alt, "Text"
    ExecuteCommand "WindowTileVertically"
    End Sub

  • All "Toggle CPP/H" macros crash DevStudio

    I test all of macros who toggle between CPP and H files.
    All of them crash DevStudio 6.0.
    GetFriendFile too.

    I remember that the first test I do with these macros was with VC5.0 and DevStudio crash too.
    I think the crash is associated with MSDN viewer.

    Regards.
