TODO: in WSF not adding task

Post by Dlashley »

I have not added any task tokens to the options, but in a WSF script I can add the comment
'TODO: list my task here

I save the file and I don't see any tasks in the task browser.
Any suggestions?

Just did a quick test and seems to work fine.
Please note that SAVING has nothing to do with it.
The task scanner is on a background thread and regularly scans all open and project files. Such a comment would show up under "Project Tasks"

Do you have the WSF opened in text mode or workspace mode?

I think I found something. This may not work for embedded files, basically it wouldn't know where to go to when you clicked on the task.
I'll mark it for the next service build.

To answer your first question -- I work in the workspace mode.
Second, I tested the todo: token with a VBS file and it did work.

As I stated above, it's an embedded file problem. Will be included in next service build.
