SlickEdit’s Context Tagging is the engine behind many editor features, such as code navigation, symbol searching, and auto-completion. The first part of this video examines SlickEdit’s primary code navigation features, which are:

  • Go to Definition
    Bound to Ctrl+. to go to the definition of a symbol
  • Pop Bookmark
    Bound to Ctrl+, to return to the previous location
  • Find All References
    Bound to Ctrl+/ to display all references to a symbol

The middle portion of the video details how compiler, SDK, and Framework directories are tagged using the Auto Tag dialog.

The last minute shows quick demonstration of symbol searching.

Future videos in this series will examine other tagging-driven features like auto-completion.
