Description starnixsa 2009-09-14 14:35:42 UTC
Unable to insert the path of a file as a template variable under Tools > Templates

Create a new template variable called ${filepath} that can read the current path of the file under the project.
e.g. Source Files > system > application > newfile.php
${filepath} = "./system/application/";

There is currently no central documentation for IDE, Project and Template variables that can be used. The closest I
found was at

Thank you!

In older version I used some variable to get the file-path value But unfortunately I forgot the variable name. That was I tried 2-3 years back, Now I tried some names like "folder", "directory", "container", "path" but nothing works. either implement this or provide some alternative solution to get a file-path value via template variable. This will help us to manage the source with better template.

Thank You.
