NppUISpy plugin for Notepad++

Builds for 32 and 64 bits Notepad++ installations available

Author: Andreas Heim, 2018

Features

With this plugin you can explore the main menu structure and the toolbar of Notepad++ to figure out which menu command ids are assigned to menu items and toolbar buttons.

You can left-click on menu item and toolbar button entries to execute the related command. With a right-click to the items a context menu pops up where you can select to copy the item's icon, its text or its menu command id to the clipboard.

Both the menu item tree and the toolbar button list provide full-text search. Start typing while one of them is focused to make the first matching item getting highlighted.

Manual installation

  1. Download the latest release. If you run a 32 bits version of Notepad++ take the file "NppUISpy_vX.X_UNI.zip". In case of a 64 bits version take the file "NppUISpy_vX.X_x64.zip".
  2. Unzip the downloaded file to a folder on your harddisk where you have write permissons.

The following steps depend on the version of Notepad++ you use.
