Macro for searching an identifier within the current SideKick asset (updated) (Search Asset Exact.bsh v0.2 by Shlomy Reinstein)
Submitted by shlomy on Monday, 11 April, 2011 - 12:39
This macro searches for a selected string (or the identifier under the caret) within the scope of the current SideKick asset. This macro can be useful for locating all occurrences of a variable inside a function - if the function is a SideKick asset. When using CtagsSideKick with C/C++/Java code, for example, putting the caret on a local variable (in a function) and invoking this macro will search the variable (whole word) inside the current function. This is a small update from the previous macro that I submitted, which also takes care of selecting the result that belongs to the current caret line in the hypersearch results.

html named entities (html_named_entities.bsh v1.5 by Johannes Raggam)
Submitted by thet on Thursday, 29 June, 2006 - 16:35
converts special characters to html entities.
based on recorded macro (search/replace) and entity list from
keeps the search settings as is.

the JTidy plugin has also this function, but maybe this beanshell macro is still useful for someone.

including ISO-8851-2 charset
may also be faster
the CHARSET of the macro is UTF-8,
set your file temporary (or permanent) to UTF-8, otherwise the search will nothing find to replace.
edit the macro to fit your needs - for sure there are many characters from many charsets left.

the file is in UTF-8 encoding. your file where you want to replace characters also has to be in utf-8, otherwise there will be no effect! so: CONVERT YOUR FILE IN UTF-8 BEFORE running the macro and convert it back afterwards.
if someone knows a beanshell commands to read and set the charset-encoding of an file, let me know - so this task could be automated. --> raggam at adm dot at

Copy_Name_to_Clipboard with a trick for rails partials (Copy_Name_to_Clipboard.bsh v0.1)
Submitted by vovan on Friday, 16 June, 2006 - 15:04
That's a "patch" for Ollie Rutherfurd's macros. In general it behaves the same, as original. But if you're trying to get to clipboard a rails partial file (like _partial.rhtml) the first _ symbol and the .rhtml ending will be snipped (so you get only "partial" in clipboard).

Macros for use with Progress 4GL ( v1 by Patrick Tingen)
Submitted by ptingen on Monday, 20 December, 2004 - 07:27
Some macros that can come in handy when working with Progress 4GL:

The macros are:
 - Keywords_to_Lower_Case.bsh   
   This macro converts keywords to lower case.

 - Keywords_to_Upper_Case.bsh   
   This macro converts keywords to upper case (surprise eh?)

 - Make_Get_and_Set_Methods.bsh 
   This macro can make get and set functions for a variable. Place
   the cursor on a line containing 'define variable ' and activate 
   the macro. It will create get and set macros. It also works with 
   multiple define statements. Just select all lines and activate
   the macro. 

    define variable CustomerName as character.
    /* Name: getCustomerName
     * Desc: Returns the value of CustomerName.
    function: getCustomerName returns null:
      return CustomerName.
    end function. /* getCustomerName*/ 
    /* Name: setCustomerName
     * Desc: Sets the value of CustomerName.
    function: setCustomerName returns logical (par1 as null):
      assign CustomerName = par1.
      return true.
    end function. /* setCustomerName*/ 
 - ProcedureList.bsh
   This macro activates an advanced search command and gives
   a list of all internal procedures, triggers and functions in 
   your code. It presents them using the hypersearch panel. 

Have fun!
