I'm trying to understand how
view.replace method works but I haven't been able to figure it yet...
replace(edit, region, string) None Replaces the contents of the region with the given string.
not much relevant info... and the method in
sublime.py is just a simple wrapper:
def replace(self, edit, r, text):
if edit.edit_token == 0:
raise ValueError("Edit objects may not be used after the TextCommand's run method has returned")
sublime_api.view_replace(self.view_id, edit.edit_token, r, text)
So I've tried to analize the behaviour with the next dummy
def run(self, edit, block=False):
self.view.replace(edit, sublime.Region(0,10), "abcde")
Here's the tests I've used to understand the behaviour:
But this is still eluding me...
@jps or @wbond Hey guys, sorry to ping... I won't ask for
sublime_api.view_replace source but would you mind to explain how the algorithm works internally?
Thanks in advance!
