Bug in View.syntax_name()

Alex Gaynor 7 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 7 years ago 0
Traceback I got when trying this from the command line.

>>> window.active_view().syntax_name()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
Boost.Python.ArgumentError: Python argument types in
    View.syntax_name(View)
did not match C++ signature:
    syntax_name(SP<TextBufferView>, long long)

This is working as expected: syntax_name() takes a point, and will return the scope name at that point. The name isn't ideal.

If you want the name of the syntax file currently in use, you can use view.settings().get('syntax')
