Description hobbysoldat 2011-02-23 15:11:55 UTC
When editing .ini Files, I do sometimes want to quickly comment or uncomment something, like it is possible in .php Files or in most other Files.

Since you claim to have .ini Support in Netbeans 7.0 I would rate this as an important and missing convenience Feature. And aren't IDEs all about that? Else i could use vi ;D

I think this should be fairly easy to implement, and maybe the current support for PHP can be adapted... PHP needs //, INI files need ; at the line start...

I am really missing this feature, and hoped it would appear in the Beta II but, it did not ... 

And do not forget about the CTRL + SHIFT + C shortcut ^.^

1) open any ini file (create one if you want)
2) try to go to SOURCE -> Toggle Comments - it will be greyed out


1) same
2) toggle adds or removes semicolons at the beginning of the file for the selected line

Voted too

This has (still) not been implemented in 7.3 

I miss this functionality daily as I have to work with lots of ini files...

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
