Script Editor

The script editor allows you to create scripts based on the Lua language to control CADFEKO, POSTFEKO and other applications as well as manipulation of data to be viewed and analysed further in POSTFEKO.

On the Home tab, in the Scripting group, click the  Script editor icon.

The script editor includes the following IDE (integrated development environment) features:
  1. Syntax highlighting.
  2. Intelligent code completion.
  3. Indentation for blocks to convey program structure, for example, loops and decision blocks in scripts.
  4. Use of breakpoints and stepping in scripts to debug code or control its execution.
  5. An active console to query variables or execute simple commands.
