ArchestrA/InTouch Notepad++ Plugins

After having to debug multiple VERY long (700 lines+) ArchestrA and InTouch scripts I got pretty fed up and needed a tool to be able to sort through the scripts. Notepad++ has some really nice find/replace features, syntax highlighting etc, but the built-in language definitions don’t work all that well for Wonderware scripting (it’s slightly different than VB). So, I built this plugin to solve the problem. Just enter your email below to get access to the download.

Easier Debugging and Troubleshooting

  • Expand/collapse IF/FOR/WHILE blocks just like any other “standard” language
  • works with ArchestrA, InTouch, and ArchestrA Graphics Scripts
  • No need to look up function documentation — auto-suggest of functions and keywords (with function/parameter documentation built-in)
