Undoubtedly, one of the things that vMix should improve is code editing for development. Currently, it is a notepad that when saving changes does a syntax check.

I'm a .NET application developer and I've been doing it in Visual Basic for many years. To try to find a better way to develop, I'm making an external application that allows visualization using colors for syntax highlighting and most importantly, appending vMix's own functions using API.Function.

Below, you can see...

1. A variable is created
2. A value is assigned
3. Type "vmix."

This action brings all the vMix functions listed on the following github site https://github.com/jensstigaard/vmix-function-list

When selecting a function, SetText for this example, the system converts the line with the expression that vMix needs to work as seen in the following image.

If vMix is ​​running, you can connect to it and load all the input's from your project. If they are of type GT, all the Text objects of that Input are loaded in the "Text fields" combo. If this action is prior to inserting the autocomplete "vmix.", it replaces the names with the ones selected in the combos.

Finally, in this example, you should just change the value to the variable as shown below
