Rant: Java's syntax and error handling.

Why in the freaking world does everything have to be in { }. It's so hard to keep track of every little { even when they're indented. And if you mess up one, the entire script goes berserk and ends up in an error loop.

Another thing: .cfg files when the authors don't explain the syntax. It makes java just die when it reads improperly made .cfg files....

Grr....

Javascript and PHP are the same way. I'm not sure which editor you use, but Notepad++ has a handy little feature: When you type a closing ), ], or }, Notepad++ will parse the code and highlight both the opening and closing brackets of the set you're closing. You can also put your cursor in the slot before or after any of the aforementioned characters in the existing code bits and it will highlight its partner. For example:

A very useful feature that has helped me out quite a bit when I had the problem you're having. ;)

RANT: I can't figure out how to read the current Primary color when CodeLab's config dialog starts. :evil:

It is the last thing I need to figure out before I release a new CodeLab. :(

(And, no, simply accessing EnvironmentParameters.PrimaryColor doesn't work.)

Why does CodeLab need to be able to detect the primary colour anyways?

Who cares?

Any effect plugin should have access to the Primary color, Secondary color, Brush width, etc.

But, for some reason, CodeLab doesn't. :(

Thanks for the help.
