Folding not working



  • I’m newer than new to NotePad++. Just downloaded it yesterday. Still trying to figure it out and have lots of questions but will only ask one for now.

    How do I fold the code?

  • @Eric-Stiles

    yes, as you describd, folding is where it should be.
    Would you mind sharing the udl xml and an example prog which doesn’t work as expected?
    Maybe we can find the culprit.

    Cheers

  • I believe code folding should automatically just work. I’ve used it plenty with XML files. Alt+0 is the fold all command, you might try that. Alt+Shift+0 is unfold all. There are other commands also available under the View drop down menu. Make sure that N++ has detected the type of file it is. If your xml file has a unexpected file extension you will want to choose XML from the Language drop down menu.

    If this doesn’t work, can you provide a snippet of the XML you’re using for me to test it out with?

    This is some code:
    ;the following will insert new data at the bottom of a selected table
    (defun c:test ( / Ent OBJ)
    (vl-load-com);needed for vl commands
    (setq Ent (car (entsel)))
    (setq data (list “AAA” “BBB” “CCC” “DDD”))

    (setq OBJ (vlax-ename->vla-object Ent))
    (setq RL (vla-get-Rows OBJ))
    (vla-insertrows OBJ RL 0.2 1)

    (setq cnt -1)
    (foreach I data
    (vla-setcellvalue OBJ RL (setq cnt (1+ cnt)) I)
    )
    )

    How should UDL know whether ( ) should be used as an operator

    <Keywords name=“Operators1”>( )</Keywords>
    

    or a folding indicator?

    <Keywords name=“Folders in code1, open”>(</Keywords>
    <Keywords name=“Folders in code1, middle”></Keywords>
    <Keywords name=“Folders in code1, close”>)</Keywords>
    

    This doesn’t work. There needs to be a unique difference.

    Cheers

  • @Eric-Stiles

    If I cut and paste your XML code into a new document in N++, then select XML from the Language menu, I see folding is applied to it. If I press Alt+0 it all folds up into one <NotepadPlus>> label/section. Can you try these steps to see if they work for you?

    I don’t see how the code folding could work on you sample code. But it should, at least, be working for your XML.

    I hope this helps

    YES that was it, for some reason parenthesis were in the Operators1 area. Thanks Claudia.
