1. Start a New Project by choosing New Project from the File menu or clicking the New Project icon on the toolbar.
2. The New Project dialog opens. Choose to create a JXEd Project (it is the only choice!). Click Next.
3. Name your Project. Choose a location to store your project. Click Finish.
5. Right Click the emptyScript.js file and choose Rename.
6. Give the file a meaningful name.
7. To edit any file, double-click it in the Projects tab. So, for example, when you double-click index.html, JXEd will open the file in the HTML editor.
9. JXED will also do some code-completion for you. That is, it will populate a list of possible completions for you as you type. To choose something from the list, simply click on it.
The above displays a list of the available attributes for a <script> element. Clicking on src inserts the src attribute into the tag.
Note: I added the value (assignment1.js) to the attribute.
11. You can use the Navigator view to quickly locate code in longer files. The Navigator is smart - it will display the contents of the current file.
13. This will load the file in your default browser.
14. When you want to create new files in your projects, right-click the project in the Projects tab and choose New >. JXEd will remember the last few types of files you've created. To see all of the available file templates, choose Other...
15. This opens the New File dialog. All of the available templates are available here. To create a text file (to use to write pseudocode, for example), click the Other node and choose the Empty File template. Click Netx.
16. Name your file. Note: for the Empty File template, you must include the extension! For pseudocode files, use the .txt extension.
18. You can have multiple projects open in JXEd. Follow the steps above to create as many projects as you'd like. I recommend creating a separate project for each assignment.
This tutorial barely scratches the surface of all the features in JXEd. You can consult the Help files for more information.
