[Feature request] Curent line indicator in status bar

  • Ashley: To help with C2 productivity and workflow, I make some use of AHK to enable shortcuts and such. To do this, I sometimes use info that's exposed from the windows. I'm trying to formulate a quicker way to navigate around an event sheet, and it would be extremely useful to be able to know which event sheet line number the selection is currently at. I'm supposing that such an gui-related addition will be relatively trivial, and that you would consider this if another C2 build is in the works.

    Of course, if there's actually another way to programmatically determine the line current line number, I'm all ears. Thanks!

    What's AHK?

    It's highlighted in yellow, doesn't that tell you?

    By highlighting, I think you're referring to the event sheet? If so, yes, it is a visual indicator, but I'm trying to get the current line number programmatically/externally.

    However, I just realised that I can only spy the first column's text (using Autohotkey) from the bottom ribbon status bar (ie the text 'Ready'). So even my status bar suggestion might actually not work because I can't access all of the info in the status bar.

    What I'm ultimately hoping for is to be able to query/spy important layout state information from the interface controls so that I can contextualise my macros. But due to their opaqueness, I get stumped now and then.

    Thanks for replying.

    best,

    lernie.
