2. Getting to Know your Monkey—a Trip to... > Time for action — creating a project

Time for action — creating a project

Time for action — creating a project Let's assume that we want to turn the FirePaint example into a project. For this, you have to create a new project first. Follow the ensuing steps: Click on File | Project Manager, in the menu. A new dialog will open. There, you will first see the Monkey project. To create a new one, click on Add Project.In the following dialog, you need to give your project a name. For now, My firepaint project should be fine. Also select the folder where the previous sample script was loaded from. After you do this, the top of the dialog should look a little like this: The bottom of the dialog with fields including sub-version controls is not functional and is probably a relic from Monk's origins of being the BlitzMAX IDE. Now, click on OK to create your project. What just happened? In the first dialog, there is now a new line with the project title. If you select this line, you could either change the properties of your project or remove it completely. You can close this dialog for now. Another thing you will notice is that, in the info box on the Nav tab, there is now a new project entry with the name you have given before. Browse through this entry and open the scripts from there by double-clicking on the script name. Convenient, isn't it? Yes, it is. And the cool thing is that this now stays there, even if you close Monk. At the next start of Monk, your new project entry is still there.
