This is a supplement to idea Comments within EventDisp-Files disappear after modifications with the Event Configurator , written only because CA wanted get some things discussed there separately.

 

OK, here are the  2 points:

- Please don't destroy formattings of the EventDisp files with the with the Event Configurator

- Please don't destroy formattings of the CsEvFormat files with the with the Event Configurator

(Thank  you, @Andre_H for part 2)

 

Here an example for the effects in the EventDisp files:

My Version, created with a text editor:

0x210c0e R CA.EventCondition, "(regexp({v 3}, {S \"Syslog\"}) && regexp({v 4}, {S \"ASA\"}))" , "0xfff11001 -:-", /

               "(regexp({v 3}, {S \"OVERTEMP\"}))" , "0xfff14001 -:-", /

               "({v 2} == {I 1}) || ({v 2} == {I 2})" , "0x21001c -:-", /

               "({v 2} == {I 3}) || ({v 2} == {I 4})" , "0x21001b -:-", /

               "({v 2} == {I 5})" , "0x21001a -:-", /

               "default" , "0x210017 -:-"

 

"Spectrums version" after editing an other event with the Event Configurator from OneClick:

0x210c0e R CA.EventCondition, "(regexp({v 3}, {S \"Syslog\"}) && regexp({v 4}, {S \"ASA\"}))" , "0xfff11001 -:-","(regexp({v 3}, {S \"OVERTEMP\"}))" , "0xfff14001 -:-","({v 2} == {I 1}) || ({v 2} == {I 2})" , "0x21001c -:-","({v 2} == {I 3}) || ({v 2} == {I 4})" , "0x21001b -:-","({v 2} == {I 5})" , "0x21001a -:-","default" , "0x210017 -:-"

The original idea Comments within EventDisp-Files disappear after modifications with the Event Configurator has the state "Currently Planned".

This  idea was a very long time "New" and is now "Under Review".

But there is no other reaction and no comment from CA.

I repeat my question from March:

Is there a chance to get this with the next Spectrum release?

I think it should parse it automatically and have a pre-defined format. I think it will be difficult to keep original content and make changes to it if there are any. Instead they should look at 'beautifying' the layout of the code. You get a lot of plugins for things like Atom, VIM, etc which do this for languages already. I guess something like that would be great. It's definitely not readable once Spectrum has updated some changes to the Event Config. I tend to stay out of the UI component because of this and try to do as much as possible via the command line and manually edit these files, but this isn't practical for all.

Why is this still listed as new?  This has had more than 30 votes for 3 months, is anyone at CA reading these things?

Why is this still listed as new?  Shouldn't it be under review by now?

Using the Event Configurator also removes commented lines, which is incredibly annoying; combined with the auto-reformatting is a huge reason why we don't use the tool. If I could upvote this request x100 I would.

Yeah I agree :-)

I thought it too, but I didn't found it.

I'm sure, many customers want this and I thought, it's better to write it twice than never and ca wanted it as an separate idea.

12-01-2015 10:59 AM

I believe there's been an idea opened to this already, as we have several customers requesting this as well.
