MVVS: MV Basic for Visual Studio

  • 1.  MVVS for D3 and jBASE?

    Posted 09-13-2023 13:53

    Hi, actually I only use VS Code with MVVS to program in Universe, and I found it amazing. I am now starting to develop in D3 and jBASE, but found out that these two databases are not supported in MVVS. 

      Are there plans to add MVVS support for D3 and jBASE? That would be really great!

      Regards,

      Enrique Murphy

    If you use AccuTerm, then it has its own connector to VS Code. It is NOT MVVS - but it is an equivalent solution - and as it runs through an AccuTerm session, it is available for any MV database.

    Invoking VS Code is just like invoking the WED editor. Instead of:  WED BP progname     use   VSCODE BP progname

    And although that commands looks as if it is only going to go to the one program, everything within the account becomes available.

    HTH,

    Brian

    Hi Brian, I don't use AccuTerm, and know very little about it. But I think that if you call VS Code from within it and VS Code does not have an extension for D3 or jBASE, then it would be like editing a text file in VS Code, no formatting, no autocomplete, etc.

    Hi Enrique,

    That isn't correct. It uses the "MV Basic" extension that is available from the VS Code Marketplace. This allows all the functionality that you would expect from an MV Editor (keyword highlighting, formatting, compiling etc).

    But that is irrelevant if you don't have AccuTerm ...

    Cheers,

    Brian

    Hi, Enrique.

    Thanks for using our extension and we do have plan to support D3 & jBASE DB in future, but currently we will only focus on the U2 DB first, please feel free to reach out to us if you have any question about our extension, thanks.
