Thanks to Lawrence Lee for
helping me make a bigger editor box.
You can customize the number of rows with the user.radio.prefs.browserBasedEditorSize pref. The column value is hard-coded at 70 in system.verbs.builtins.radio.userInterface.editorBox.
For Radio newbies who might stumble here, that means go to Radio's
Window menu, and open Radio.root. If you get a confusing display, find
the Outline menu and select "Collapse Everything"
Now double click on the black triangle to the left of user
, then radio
When you get to the browserBasedEditorSize, it'll say 9 in the Value
Click in there and you can change the number (FWIW, I changed mine to 18).
For the other change, use command-J (or, the menus "Tools >> Developers >> Jump ...").
Then type in (or paste) the system.verbs...editorBox string.
The top line defines the function "editorBox". (Radio's Usertalk script abbreviates the keyword "function" by using only its last two letters. Odd ...) Anyway, the last parameter to that function,
"ctcols", has a hard-coded default parameter of 70. You can change that to whatever you like.
I use 111 now.
Caveat: It's entirely possible that one or both of these changes might
have to be re-done each time you update to a new version of Radio, or to a new
Radio.root. That's one reason why I've gone to the trouble of writing all of this
down so fully.
