Editor Integration : PSPad

Integrating Kix2Exe and ScriptCfg into PSPad is really simple. Just follow the steps described below. Other editors will probably have a similiar setup.

Step 1 - Adding Kix2Exe as a Script Compiler

  1. Start PSPad and open the Settings menu.
  2. Open the Highlighters option and select KiXtart
  3. Select the Compilers tab and fill in the settings according to the following screenshot

Note : If you installed Kix2Exe in another location, change the path to your situation. The "%File%" is a PSPad internal variable representing the currently opened KiXtart script. The /usescriptsettings tells Kix2Exe to read the packaging settings from the script.

Step 2 - Adding ScriptCfg to PSPad (optional)

This step describes how to add ScriptCfg as an external application to PSPad. By doing so, you can easily add the packaging settings comment block to your script.

  1. Start PSPad and open the Settings menu.
  2. Open the Highlighters option and select KiXtart
  3. Select the External applications tab and enter the settings below:

After you've added ScriptCfg, the packaging settings comment block can be added to your script by opening the File menu and selecting the Add Kix2Exe Packaging Settings menu option.

Step 3 - Package a script from the editor

Now that you've added Kix2Exe as a KiXtart compiler, you can package your script directly from PSPad. Just select the Compile option from the File menu or press Ctrl-F9 instead. The script is being packaged. Kix2Exe output is shown in the Output Window inside PSPad.

See the screenshot below.
