The feature I would like is for Programmer’s Notepad to hunt through all the files in a project and gather up all the places I’ve written TODO and then a comment and show them in a handy place.

I know I can do this in ‘find in files’ (which is the current method) but when I am refactoring, I find I use the find-in-files system a lot and can’t have my todo list open and handy.

Yes, this is something that visual studio does.

Would anyone else find this useful or is it just me?

Hey brain,

It is a handy feature which I use when I use netbeans. There are several other syntaxes also so to have it customisable would be nice.

It would be a good idea to post it here:

Interestingly you can make a Python script for that as running this:

pn.AddOutput(“n File “C:\Some\Path\YourFileName.ext”, line 123″)

Will make a “link” in Ouput window to YourFileName.ext (line 123).

Only thing you would need to do is make a search for some text (“todo” in this case). Not sure how that would be most efficiently done in Python (or PyPN to be more exact).

I’d like to see such a task list built-in similar to VS:


Maybe as a CTags enhancement?
