Text Editors and Macros

Text Editors and Macros

The macro-B program is used by Microsoft Office products like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to produce output documents in bulleted or numbered lists. In order to produce such a list, it is necessary to create macro sheets within the spreadsheet application in order to associate a specific series of related commands with a single destination. Macros behave exactly like ordinary text commands. They can be written, stored in memory, and then used at a later time. If a macro was created previously using Microsoft Office programs like Word or Excel then it will continue to operate even when opened in another application.

When opening a macro B document, first of all, the document needs to be created using the macro B editor; see the “Macro B” section of the OLE prompt if you are unsure of how to open the document in that application. In Excel, a macro is a group of text or document objects enclosed in a Vim-like small vertical bar. This style of the custom macro is used to define and create variables, display charts, manipulate dates and automatically add, delete or update fields or cells. The appearance of a macro is different from the visual representation of the macro so that is why some consider that a custom macro is a separate program from the application it is running.

o Path of origin – the path of origin for any macro is the file that the macro will be saved in, usually C:/MacroBundle/BundleID/System Variable/macros. The other alternative is to create the macro in the Visual Studio Application. In fact, Visual Studio allows importing DLL files which are Dynamic Link Library files to the programs which do not natively have them. For example, the windows registry editor can import all files from the Microsoft system.

o Name of the macro – the name of the macro is important because the names will be associated with the macro even when they are not used. So, it will be easy to locate the macro when typing the name in the dialogue box or going into the macro settings. However, naming a macro is not the same as with the path of the origin. If the macro was created in a program and later on deleted, the file location and names will have changed. This means that an unfamiliar user who uses a foreign program for macro programming may encounter an error message similar to this:

o Common Variable – The most commonly used macro types are the standard variables and the complex functions. The standard variables are easy to identify and there are no restrictions on their use. On the other hand, the complex functions and macros are not so easy to code. A complicated macro has to return a value and also set or store some information into other areas of the program. A common variable can be defined in the macro and then accessed as needed.

o Cycle Start/Stop Function – A cycle start/stop function is common in all object-oriented programming languages. This works like a switch statement. When a cycle starts, it will immediately jump to the next cycle start block and continue to repeat until the loop stops. In the B macro example above, we could write the following code to define a cycle start/stop function: def multiply(a b): if an in range(a b): multiply(a b) A simple way to see how the multiply function works is to imagine that the outer accumulator and the inner accumulator are both constant. If the value of a was added to the accumulator, the inner accumulator will be updated and the outer accumulator will be updated also.

O System Variable – In the macro B program above, we defined two system variables A and B, each named Fanuc. System variables are used within macro programs to allow the programmer to control the behavior of a macro by assigning different values to different system commands. For instance, the system variable F(x) is equal to the result of multiplying the value by the original expression that was entered, so it is set to the original expression. If the original expression was the Fibonacci formula, the value of F would be the number of times the Fibonacci number was divided by x, or 1.5.

These are some of the main types of text editors that you can use to create custom macro b programs. Text editors are great because they are easy to use, quick to generate, and you can save yourself time by using pre-written text. However, if you want to be able to create your own custom text editor, you must have some text editing skills as well as a good text editor that can handle complex graphics and scripts. Luckily, many of these text editors have been enhanced for computer programmers and web designers who want to create visual macro and script macros. These are programs that you can buy as either stand-alone products or as part of a complete graphics design software package.
