Coder’s Helper

Omnis Studio LogoCoder’s Helper is a collection of Omnis Studio utilities to aid the programmer. We built this for our own use and share with it our friends.

Installation is easy; just drop the library into the “Startup” folder in the Omnis directory. Or make an alias to the file and put the alias in the “Startup” folder in the Omnis directory. An “alias” is a Mac OS X term. It is the same thing as a “shortcut” on Windows and a “symbolic link” on Linux.

Please bear in mind that Coder’s Helper is a developer utility. It is not a polished application nor is it any kind of “best practice” example. A lot of quick and dirty tools to help a specific job done. Feel free to modify it for your use.

oscoder4.zip Coder’s Helper, version 4 for Omnis Studio v1.2 and later

osclipboard.zip Coder’s Clipboard
A rough prototype of a tool for organizing Omnis Studio code by the project plan rather than the library. This is the NT version – Not Tested, bugs included for no extra charge. Nonetheless, it demonstrates one approach to sub windows, objects and messaging. I am sure you can improve it.

objlist.zip Recursive Object Hierarchy Walker
An Omnis Studio object class that traverses the $objs groups for a given class. The operation is described in the Programmer’s Notes included in the code.
