Hi,

I am writing a plugin which will show assembly output for the current
opened C/C++ file. (https://github.com/sanjuchopracool/CodeInsight)
I created an editor factory which is actually using CppEditorFactory and
for Editor widget , I created a widget which use CppEditorWidget and add it
into the a splitter along with a push button(later it will be a text editor
which will show assembly code).
It is working but there is an annoying issue with editing. All the event
which use CTRL modifier (e.g. CTRL+A, CTRL+SHIFT+Up) are not working for
editor widget. Editor widget is CppEditor which is
BaseTextEditorWidget.When O open C/C++ files with standard editor,
everything works.

I am not able to figure out the issue. Please help me to fix this issue.

Hi,

these standard actions are handled by a “TextEditorActionHandler”.
There is (should be) exactly one TextEditorActionHandler instance per editor _type_.
If you look at the implementation of the CppEditorFactory constructor, that calls setEditorActionHandlers(....) which creates a TextEditorActionHandler instance for the factories id(), which at this point of time is CPPEDITOR_ID, as set at the beginning of the CppEditorFactory constructor.

Since you will want your own document / widget / editor / completer set anyhow, I’d suggest that you do not use CppEditorFactory as a base.
