nppColdFusion / Using CFWheels with nppColdFusion

Using the CFWheels autocomplete with nppColdFusion

The autocomplete file for CFWheels was designed for Notepad++'s built in autocomplete/calltip mechanism (back when nppColdFusion was a hack of LexHTML). 0.3 of nppColdFusion took a different approach to autocomplete and making it a bit more intelligent that the one built in to Notepad++.

And as such they are incompatible with each other.

Currently there are two options:

1) Use 0.2.5 of nppColdFusion, and the CFWheels xml file.. With this you lose the ColdFusion built in functions and tags (unless you make a different xml file merging together the one for ColdFusion, and the one for Wheels), and of course you also lose the Context Sensitive Autcomplete feature of nppCF.

2) You can use 0.3 (and above) of nppColdFusion, and paste the following into the User defined keywords for the CFFUNCTION style, in the Settings - Style Configurator Dialog in Notepad++:

This will add the CFWheels functions to the CF Functions Autocomplete list, and will show up in that list. Disadvantage of this is the calltips will not work.. Once a Notepad++ version is released that allows plugins to create calltips, I can port the autocomplete file into nppColdFusion for displaying the calltips for CFWheels.
