Description davidpaules 2003-07-01 18:58:05 UTC
Take a look at how Project Builder on Mac OS X implements 
line wrapping. Depending on the size of your text editor's 
screen real estate, the code within would wrap nicely so 
that ALL of the code was visible in that window. This way, 
javadoc comments can be written so that they are always 
visible with the code. Long method calls and deeply nested 
code is visible within the same space without requiring 
side-scrolling IN ADDITION TO vertical scrolling. The build 
tools on Mac OS X even performed smart indenting of the 
soft-wrapped lines, so that deeply nested method calls did 
not simply start at the leftmost column when wrapped, 
preserving the code format somewhat. That could be an 
option for the user to enable (smart indenting) just as 
line-wrapping could be an option. I think these options 
make editing, reading, and understanding code much more 
useful given the numerous windows developers already must

The new editor's view-based displaying system that I'm working on will
certainly support line-wrapping. Regarding smart-indenting of the
wrapped lines I can't tell when will we support that feature.

Changed subcomponent to formatting.
Comment 3 Marek Fukala 2006-11-27 14:53:24 UTC
Any plans for this one? What about 6.0? It is quite useful... 
Comment 4 Vitezslav Stejskal 2006-11-27 20:06:18 UTC
Maybe, but it's not a priority. Have you got any spare cycles? ;-)
