In IntelliJ/Rust, an external program can cause the IDE to jump to a particular line number / file by executing
launch-idea --line LINE_NUMBER FILE_NAME
this is useful if stackframes are displayed outside of the IDE, and we want "click on it" -> IDE jumps to right line number / file name.
In VS code, is there something similar? In particular, I want some command line option that let me instruct the existing / running VS Code session to jump to a particular file / line.
FILE_NAME:LINE_NUMBER. That trick works for Sublime.
I believe the question you answered is:
- Suppose I have an application that prints out strings.
- What format should it print out a (filename, line_number) combo in the terminal so that if the user clicke don it inside the VS Code IDE, it will cause the IDE to jump to the right filename / line number combo.
The question I meant to ask is:
- I am writing an OpenGL app.
- Inside my OpenGL app, I have button-like thihngs.
- When the user clicks on a 'button', I want it to call some shell command.
- Calling this shell command should cause the IDE to jump to a filename / line_number combo.
In IntelliJ, I can use the
launch-idea --line ... technique. Is there something similar for VS Code ?
The 'XY problem here is that I have an Err type that uses the
backtrace-rs datatype to capture a Backtrace inside the
Result<.., Err>. Then, at a later point, when displaying the Err (in OpenGL), I can display the backtrace of filename/line_number. Now, when I click on this (inside OpenGL), I want to cause this to run some shell command that tells the current active VS Code to jump to a particular file name / line number.
