Issue 184 – Keepalive while in editor

: General
: Unspecified
: Enhancement

While editor or viewer is active ProcessEvent(FE_IDLE) does not occur, hence WinSCP plugin does not perform keepalives. There is no periodical event counterpart in FAR editor API. Possible way is to hook to ProcessEditorEvent(EE_REDRAW). But that occurs only if something changes in the editor (e.g. when you type).
Also this may have negative impact to performance on itself. But now, when the plugin hooks the ProcessEditorEvent(EE_REDRAW) already because of "upload on save" functionality, the additional impact is negligible.
