Created attachment 114880 [details]

When "Show Non-printable Characters" is enabled, consecutive tabs are represented with a single "»" symbol. I'd expect as many "»" as tabs.

It worked fine in 7.0 so it's a regression.

Minimal patch

Well, I took a guess that NetBeans would automatically attach a patch when I selected "finish patch" but it looks like that's not the case. Attached is a minimal patch to correct this issue.

Added myself and changed the component.
Comment 4 Cheater 2012-07-18 07:47:12 UTC
This issue, is still an issue in 7.2 RC1.

I guess, because I have a compiled version, I cannot apply this patch, or can I?

Is development able to fix this issue in 7.2 Final ?

I am unable to resolve this issue via a NetBeans plugin. As a user who *always* works with the Show Non-printable Characters option enabled, this patch is essential. It also simplifies the current code and is easy to verify.

Thanks for the patch. In the end I've chosen to retain multi-char TabView and fix its rendering.

And how do you apply the patch?

I found the file to change the code...

1)what I have on my machine is way different from what is on the page at: 
My version doesn't import as many files.

And the only way I can open it is in netbeans and it says it is compiled code in the folds.

2)If I try to use the above patch, I can't find it in the code to change it.
And I can't open 2 of the 4 HighlightsViewFactory the $1 and $2 files won't open.

3)If I try to download and run the nightly download exe it won't run...

I'm running on a 64bit windows machine....

And I'm not even close to being a java wizard... I don't even know enough to make myself dangerous...So go easy on me...

> And how do you apply the patch?
Just download a build from http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ and use that one. Not sure why it did not run properly.

To see sources and build by yourself you would have to through http://wiki.netbeans.org/DevFaqAccessSourcesUsingMercurial etc.
