How to change Switch ... Case indenting in SciTE

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

As is, SciTE indents a Case line after a Switch line (and outdents an EndSwitch line after the last case.

How can I get it to align Case and Endswitch under Switch ?

In Scite go to Options => Open User Options File, add this line

indent.automatic=0

This turns off autoindenting.

Thank you. I was hoping to change the auto-indenting behavior rather than have none.

I have tried adding the following to User Options:

block.start.$(au3)=5 case if do for func else elseif while with\
                    Case If Do For Func Else ElseIf While With\
                    CASE IF DO FOR FUNC ELSE ELSEIF WHILE WITH
block.end.$(au3)=5 case else endif elseif endfunc next until wend endwith\
                  Case Else EndIf ElseIf EndFunc Next Until Wend WEnd EndWith\
                  CASE ELSE ENDIF ELSEIF ENDFUNC NEXT UNTIL WEND ENDWITH

but this is not doing precisely want I want to do. Suggestions?

You might want to check the Scite or Scintilla sites for suggestions on this. I'm sure it's come up before with them so you might get more help there as they wrote it.

Not sure I understand the change you want,  but the auto indenting is partly done by Lua functions when you have the full version installed.

I would like the word Case to appear at the same indentation as Switch (and EndSwitch), rather than Case being indented more than Switch (and EndSwitch).

Thank you for the clue. I will look into Lua functions.

We have made the choice in Tidy and SciTE to indent the Case lines within the Switch...EndSwitch block.
You can remove the auto indentation in SciTE, but this is not the case for Tidy.
