Integrate SourceFormatX Into UltraEdit

Format Source Code within UltraEdit

The following instructions allow you to format, beautify and indent the current open source code file in UltraEdit 32 Text Editor using the command line tool of SourceFormatX code formatter & code beautifier. We used a free trial version of UltraEdit 32 Version 12.00, 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 code formatter

1. Click "Advanced" -> "Tool Configuration...".

2. Click the "Insert" button in the "Command" page to add a new tool menu.

3. Assuming you installed SourceFormatX code indenter in C:\Program Files\SourceFormatX\, fill in the form as show below:

  • Menu Item Name:        SourceFormatX
  • Command Line:           "C:\Program Files\SourceFormatX\SourceFormatX.exe" %F
                                      (Please note you need to put two double quotes before and after the path of SourceFormatX.exe file.)
  • Working Directory:       (Leave blank)
  • Toolbar Bitmap/Icon:    (Leave blank, or you can specify an icon for it.)
                                      (Right click to download the .ico icon file of SourceFormatX.)

  Options and Output Settings

1. Click the "Options" page then uncheck the "Save Active File" checkbox.

2. Click the "Output" page then uncheck the "Capture Output" checkbox.

3. Click "OK" to save settings.

  Add a keymapping so you can invoke SourceFormatX using Ctrl+Shift+T

1. Click "Advanced" -> "Configuration...".

2. Select the "Key Mapping" item.

3. Scroll the "Commands" box to "AdvancedUserTool1", assign new key "Ctrl+Shift+T" or other keys.

4. Click "Assign", then click "OK".

  You may now invoke the command line tool of SourceFormatX code beautifier by two ways:

1. Using Ctrl+Shift+T

2. By clicking "Advanced" -> "SourceFormatX".
