DrawScript configuration mode for StrongED
2BIGWAVE.GIF The DrawScript mode configuration for StrongED (8K) can be downloaded from here.

This package configures the freeware text editor, StrongED, for the editing and writing of DrawScript files. Once configured every aspect of writing and running scripts can be controlled from a StrongED window. E.g.

  • DrawScript's "dot" commands are available from entries in popup menus which when selected write the command to the editor window
  • Fonts and Colours are chosen using the standard RiscOS dboxes and the appropriate command written to the editor window just by selecting "OK"

DrawScript StrongHelp manual
3BIGWAVE.GIF The DrawScript StrongHelp manual (56K) can be downloaded from here.

This alternative guide to DrawScript has many features which interact with text editors - e.g. writing commands in an edit window, choosing colours and fonts via dboxes, etc.

If StrongED is used then pressing function key F1 when the caret is over a DrawScript dot command (or a BASIC keyword) opens the relevant help page on that command.
