Thank you for taking the time out to send in your votes and suggestions. 

Our winner for this round is: Trace references to variables and functions (show places where a function or variable is used)

 

Implementation time is around 5-6 weeks, so we'll have this included in our next release, TestComplete 12.5.

Re: Vote for the Code Editor Features to be Implemented

Hi,

 

Using the occasion...

As all supported scripting languages (except VBScript) support optional function parameters that can be set within the code, do you think that it is a good idea to make the 'Run Current Routine' Code Editor's context menu command to be enabled for both procedures and functions for all scripting languages except VBScript (where it should be left disabled for functions as it is now) ?

Do I need to create a feature request for this?

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your suggestion. Definitely, it's worth creating a dedicated feature request here.

Do you think this would significantly help when debugging the code?

Hi Tanya,

 

Feature Request has been created: https://community.smartbear.com/t5/TestComplete-Feature-Requests/Run-Current-Routine-Code-Editor-s-c...

 

Yes, I think that this will improve debugging convenience because any function can be started without the necessity to create wrapping one with the only purpose to provide default parameters for the function been called.
