How to Make a ToDo List in the Xojo IDE

As early as possible in your code place this line:

#PRAGMA warning “TODO”

My own projects have this line in the App.Open event. Wherever you want a ToDo note in your code type #PRAGMA warning “Your message”.

When the project is analysed all the ‘PRAGMA warning’ messages will appear at the top of the ‘Errors & Warnings’ dialogue at the bottom of the IDE. Not the greatest ToDo list ever, but it’s free!

Extra bonus:

I also use ‘///TODO: message’ in my code.  Can then search for ‘///TODO:’

If you wish it is possible to mix both and have ‘#PRAGMA warning “///TODO: “Your message”’
