LDC #132: Adding Edit Functionality to the Page Break Manager

 

Last year, I wrote a series of blog posts on a Page Break Manager tool for GoFiler. It allowed users to save page breaks into a style template, rename them, and delete them. One feature was conspicuously absent though, the ability to edit a page break. Well, it seems like now would be a good time to rectify that mistake! This blog post is going to go over how to add the edit function to this script. It’s also a really good example of code should be written in a fairly modular fashion, because it makes it a lot easier to come back in and edit things later. I wrote this seven months ago, I don’t really remember how a lot of the functions work exactly. Things like reading the file into a data table, or saving the file back out, are somewhat complicated, and while I’m sure I could figure out how it’s working, there’s really no need to, since those are self-contained functions within the script. I don’t need to know how they work really, as long as they do what they’re supposed to do I can simply re-use them in this new function without a problem.

This week we are going to finish up by creating a dialog and adding our script functionality into the dialog. [...]
