Integrate SourceFormatX Into ConText

Format Source Code within ConText

The following instructions allow you to format the current open source code file in ConText Editor using SourceFormatX code formatter command line tool. We used a freeware version of ConText Version 0.97.4, so if you use an older or even a newer version then several screenshots or menu items may differ from our description.

  Add a Tool Menu that will invoke SourceFormatX

1. Click "Options" -> "Enviroment Options...".

2. Select the "Execute Keys" page, click the "Add" button, enter the file extension(s).

3. Click "F9" in the tree box, fill in the form as show below (Assuming you installed SourceFormatX code formatter in C:\Program Files\SourceFormatX\).

  • Execute:        C:\Program Files\SourceFormatX\SourceFormatX.exe
  • Start In:         %p
  • Parameters:   %n
  • Window:         Minimized
  • Hint:              (Leave blank)
  • Save:            Nothing

4. Click "OK" to save settings.

  You may now invoke SourceFormatX command line tool by three ways:

1. Using F9

2. By clicking "Tools" -> "User Command 1".
