Whether that approach (and I don't know the details) is appropriate for a standard/convention I'll leave to others to debate. In the more general case, it is, in fact, extremely simple to invoke almost any other tool from Delphi by using the Tools configuration dialog, which provides macros that expand to current file, current line, current path, etc. Cheers, Marcelo -- http://www.simdb.com/~marcelo/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
