Showing RB Code in WordPress

If you use Real Studio and are a blogger, the fine folks over at Figa Labs have (re?) released a plugin for WordPress that formats your REALbasic code properly in WordPress.  This is a very nice plugin and is apparently based the PHP code of an old Real Studio employee.  So now your code snippets go from this:

Function Ask(instructions as string, byref initialtext as String, bPassword as boolean = false, w as Window) As Boolean

stInstructions.text = instructions

efText.Password = bPassword

efText.text = initialtext

efText.SelectAll

if w = nil then

self.ShowModal

else

self.ShowModalWithin w

end

if bSave then initialtext = efText.text

return bSave

End Function

 

To this:



Function Ask(instructions as string, byref initialtext as String, bPassword as boolean = false, w as Window) As Boolean
   
   stInstructions.text = instructions
   
   efText.Password = bPassword
   
   efText.text = initialtext
   
   efText.SelectAll
   
   if w = nil then
      
      self.ShowModal
      
   else
      
      self.ShowModalWithin w
      
   end
   
   if bSave then initialtext = efText.text
   
   return bSave
   
End Function

 


The only tricky part it remembering the shortcodes, which isn’t really all that hard.  “[“rbcode”]” starts the formatting and “[“/rbcode”]” ends it (remove the quotes to actually get it to work).  Ideally I’d love to have a button that lets me do format the code without having to remember the shortcodes but hey, life isn’t perfect.

Happy coding, and blogging!
