Sets limits for variable check.

Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server iOS SDK
SyntaxColoring 10.2 ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No ❌ No ❌ No
MBS( "SyntaxColoring.CheckVariableDeclaration.SetLimits" { ; Limit1; Limit2 } )   More


Parameter Description Example Flags
Limit1 How many lines to look up. 500 Optional
Limit2 How long a script may be to not be checked at all. 2000 Optional


Returns OK or error.


Sets limits for variable check.
By default this returns 500 and 2000 as we look up to 500 lines up for variable declaration and don't check scripts with 2000 or more lines.
Script workspace gets slower if we check >500 lines on every change made.

It may be good to repeat the variable declarations with @variable comments instead of increasing the limits.


Set higher limits:

MBS( "SyntaxColoring.CheckVariableDeclaration.SetLimits"; 600; 2400 )

Reduce to half of the deault:

MBS( "SyntaxColoring.CheckVariableDeclaration.SetLimits"; 250; 1000 )
