109 CHAPTER 1 PWB is a completely customizable development environment. You can modify PWB in the following ways: u Changing mapping of keystrokes to actions. u Changing default behavior of PWB (for example, how tabs are handled or if PWB automatically saves files). u Changing the colors of parts of the PWB display. u Adding new commands to the Run menu. u Programming new editor actions (macros). Instructions on how to write macros are in “Writing PWB Macros” on page 98. In addition to the customizations that you can make by using the commands in the Options menu, you can also customize PWB by editing the TOOLS.INI file. Another category of customization that is not covered in this book is how to write PWB extensions. An extension is a dynamically loaded module that can access PWB’s internal functions. Extensions can do much more than macros. To learn more about writing PWB extensions, see the Microsoft Advisor Help system (choose “PWB Extensions” from the main Help table of contents). Changing Key Assignments \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1001" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1002" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1003" PWB maps actions (functions and macros) to keys. You can assign any of these actions to keys other than the default keys. For example, Exit is a PWB function. Its default key assignment is F8. A BRIEF user may prefer to use ALT+X to leave the editor. Û To make ALT+X execute the Exit function: 1. From the Options menu, choose Key Assignments. PWB displays the Key Assignments dialog box. § Note Filename: 8dfdb83e5e3f39646a718afc92c20ac7379cc531.doc Project: Template: Author: Last Saved By: Revision #: 0 Page: 109 of 25 Printed: 10/28/92 13:40 A10/P10

Environment and Tools \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1004" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1005" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1006" 2. Select Exit in the Macro/Function List box, or type exit in the Macro/Function Name text box. 3. Move the cursor to the New Key box between the braces ( {} ) by clicking between the braces or by pressing ALT+K . 4. Press ALT+X . PWB types ALT+X in the text box after the braces and displays the name of the macro or function that ALT+X is currently assigned to. With the default settings, you can see that ALT+X is assigned to the Unassigned function. Pressing a key in the key box is a quick way to find out the name of the function assigned to the key. \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1007" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1008" \z "CUSTOV.DOC-1009" When the cursor is in the key box (between the braces), most keys lose their usual meaning, including ESC , F1 , and the dialog box access keys. The key you press is interpreted as the key to be assigned. Only TAB , SHIFT+TAB , ENTER , and NUMENTER retain their usual meaning. To assign one of these keys, type the name of the key in the text box. 5. Press
