I'm writing code which should allow the user to edit certain sections, and I want to make it clear to the user where they should edit (it doesn't have to prevent them from editing other stuff). The user would select what they want to modify in the code (through a GUI) and it would take them to the correct section of the code. I thought of a number of options (unfolding only that section, disabling editing other code, moving to the correct line) but I couldn't find a command to do any of these things. (Having it display something in line through live editor won't work because it's a class). Does anyone know how you might implement this?

I thought about all this and I described how the api should work here. I still have to learn a bit more I think before I start coding (things like handle functions, handle functions as inputs, assert). I also don't know how good my basic idea so far is.

I'd just use app designer or guide and make a gui with either 3 radio buttons or a drop down list (popup) with three selections. Then in the main part of your code, you can check the state of the GUI controls to see which of your available options they selected.

If you're referring to the GUI, I decided the first thing I'll do is get rid of it.
