RE: Plugin not working on plugin re-activation

Thanks, Carlos. I'll put that into the internal bug tracker.

I'm having some trouble with lexing at the moment, but am hoping to have it working soon.

Plugin not working on plugin re-activation

Hi Syntaxial,

Everything works fine, except when you re-activate the plugin. If you go to your D class file it will not be associated to the D language file type nor the icon will appear on it. you need to restart the IDE to get it working again.

To recreate:
1. Install the plugin - ide restart
2. create a D class file
3. deactivate the plugin
4. activate the plugin
5. D class file is of unknown type - no D icon.
6. restart IDE

It works again.

We have seen this same issue with other plugins before. Activation of a plugin does not make the IDE to restart, so the plugin does not get loaded.

Just so you be aware.
