Fold by Indent



  • As I’ve worked with N++ and languages, I’ve noticed that it will automatically fold( and nest) some of the languages based on the indention.

    This feature is wonderful and I would like to use it when I have a command that I continue on multiple lines.

    I write in a non-standard language. I already use UDL and love it. Is this possible using UDL? is there a plug-in that would do this?

    As far as I know, UDL will not fold/nest based on indents, only on character sequences. Though if someone can prove me wrong, great!

    It is possible to write a plugin to do that – because it’s theoretically possible to write your own lexer plugin. But I don’t know of any that already exist.



  • That’s what I figured. Guess I just leave those long lines alone manually wrap inside a region

    Maybe I misunderstood. Fold/nest (which I was talking about) implies the hiding of lines from a block structure, such as a c-function, like

    ⊟ int blah(args) {
        int a = 1;
        int b = 2;
      }
    ⊟ double yo(args) {
        double a = 1;
        double b = 2;
      }
    

    being collapsed down to

    ⊞ int blah(args) {
    ⊞ double yo(args) {
    

    Whereas “long lines … wrap” is a completely different setting (View > Word Wrap or equivalent toolbar icon), and just converts

    13    Pretend this line... is very, very long
    14    And another line
    

    into

    13    Pretend this line...
          is very, very long 
          (but now it is wrapped)
    14    And another line
