Uh? Did I put and forgot the help button ?

For my part, I feel amused and honnored by this attention ;-)

Hmmm... I had no time to review my code and check to auto-refresh the
dialog`s data
Maybe you could do it for me ?
Maybe you would be more precise on what you are talking about ?

WORSE: All my code relies on the ClassParser engine.
I mean errors are highly probable when adding code into the CPP files.
->Just read : When adding implemented code because of wrong line numbers
by the ClassParser methods.
( See :
 and CKdevelop:::slotCVAddAttributes(...)
If only I had time to call and use the ctags utility....

My last words on the faulty ClassProperties:
I've made it in three days ( the whole codesource and the dialog) , and gave
it to John.
After I had only some few time to debug and correct the errors. I knew that
the GUI
design was not efficient, but it was better then the old one in that I was
not required
to switch to the QT/KDE docs to seek and remember the signals prototypes.
That was the MAIN and ORIGINAL reason for the new ClassProperties dlg.
...And what do you think about the static attributes ? There was NO code
for implementing static variables into the CPP files...

I am still a newbie - no time to learn and practice but I think I did
something a bit usefull for kdevelop.

I keep telling that  Kdevelop 1.4 ( 2.0 ) is still better than 1.3 and my
is very usefull (at least) for me.

Sorry for my bad english ;-)
