It is possible to use your favourite html editor ( for example, Notepad++ ) to edit the html source code of your UI component view or BSP application by simple configuration:

Just specify the absolute path of your local html source code editor ( .exe file ) in SE80 settings below:

/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/clipboard1_602303.png


Then in BSP_WD_CMPWB or SE80, use menu Edit->Start Local HTML Editor:


/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/clipboard2_602304.png

And then your local html editor is automatically opened with the given view source code loaded.

How does local html editor launched with source code

There is no magic behind the scene.

1. Once Edit-local menu is selected, first the path of local editor exe file is retrieved:

2. The source code of current html view is fetched and stored in internal table source:

3. The source code of html view is downloaded and stored in a temporary file in your local machine:


/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/clipboard6_602312.png

4. local editor is launched to open that temporary file generated in step3, and that’s all.
