[VAST8] HierarchyBrowser

When I work with this browser I sometimes loose the color syntax setting. Switching to tab "Class Definition" and back to "Mothod Source" gives me color syntax presentation back again.

PS.: Just execute "New Method Template" and the colored syntax is gone ....

I have seen this behavior only at very large methods, 100 lines and more. I know, it will not help you, it's a comment.:)

Hi All,

I have a possible fix for this problem.

In StsTabbedClassesBrowserWin>>#sourceCodeNotebookPageSelection:clientData:callData:

at this line of code:
Code: Select all
previousTabName = selectedTabName
   ifTrue: [^nil ].

Insert a line of code so that you get:
Code: Select all
previousTabName = selectedTabName
      ifTrue: [
         self changedTextTo: self class methodSourceStringName.
         ^nil ].

After this the hierarchy browser just works fine again with syntax code colouring :)

Also search for other classes implementing this method as this is applicable for all sorts of browsers. :?

Regards, Yuri.
