Hi,

VAX is somewhat able to detect compilation errors before you compile a file (they are underlined like a spelling mistake).
This is nice, but it would be even nicer if there would be a way to jump to the next error, or to have a list of all these errors, certainly in large files. This way you could remove the most obvious mistakes before even starting a compilation.
Of course spelling mistakes in comments should be skipped or handled separately.

What do you think?

I like the idea, although in my experience underlining is mostly caused by VAX not keeping up with my changes

Regarding spelling errors, these are already handled seperately within VAX(*). So I guess it wouldn't be too difficult to excempt them from 'error navigation' once it gets implemented.

(*): You can see that when you set the coloring for spelling errors. Personally I set it to orange, so I can more easily discern it from potential coding errors.

You can already step through spelling errors, just use the toolbar button for spell check or the menu item "VAssistX -> Tools -> Spell Check..."

Stepping through mistyped symbols is an interesting idea. As sl@sh says sometimes they are caused by VA not having caught up with your latest typing, but a lot of the time, especially when renaming an existing variable, that the underlining is stable and very important.

I have put in a feature request for this:
