waldo: CRS AL Language Extension – ControlNames are no longer surrounded by double quotes
There is a recent change that I had to introduce in the CRS AL Language Extension – you know, that tiny little VSCode Extension that quite a lot of you seem to be using ;-). +89000 downloads/+21500 installs – that’s crazy! It’s one of my biggest projects I ever did for the community :-).
Stop bragging, get to the point…
Well – because of the fact that so many people are using the extension, I think I have to make you aware of an important change (fix) I did to the extension (already almost 3 weeks ago…).
I have had a couple of requests to change the “rename” behaviour, which I had to implement, because they were causing small inconveniences. These were the requests:
A combination of commits (from both me and Kenneth (thanks Kenneth!)) will now make sure that the double quotes will only be there if needs to be. Much better of course, and it solves the bugs.
But that’s just like any other bugfix … so now comes the real reason of this post …
However, since you all will get this new version of this VSCode extension by default, you might have noticed that your names in your existing pages might automatically get more edits that you might have expected: when you rename the file (and for many people, that automatically happens when you save the file), it will “correct” all these fields. So you will have edits that removed quotes.
You might have had this:
And suddenly now you have this:
That might be inconvenient – I have had the feedback from a few people.
Well, it IS inconvenient – the issue is: you are making many more changes than you actually intend to. All these changes go into source control: so a changeset might give you non-important renames of controls .. which can be confusing.
How do you handle it?
Well, my recommendation would be.
Hope this helps! Enjoy the extension going forward!
