Anyone using Notepad++? Jun. 7th, 2012 @ 08:10 AM Reply

hi!
Is any of you guys using Notepad++ for programming in ActionScript? Or just for programming in anything?

And if yes, you might help me out on this bit:
How do I turn on the bracket spacing in Notepad++?
You know what I mean, right? It's when you write a new function or if/then/else statement, all lines of code in it get 'pushed' forward so it's easier to read...
It's kinda hard to explain so here's an illustrative picture: http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/4512/notepadprob.jpg

Can anyone help?

I usually just press the tab button. Part of why I like Notepad++ is that I can use my own style.
But since you want it, you could try "NppAutoIndent", haven't tried it myself, but check it out.

Thanks man! I actually didn't know there's this tab function so at least that's something.
Ofc, the AutoIndent would be best, but it adds one line more than necessary and I can't understand why is that :|

Isn't there something similar?

I use Notepad ++ for Javascript
It's so stable and runs well :3

<script type="text/javascript">
	var math = 3 + 9;
	document.write(math);
</script>

I used Notepad++ for Java until I got hold of Eclipse. It's a neat tool, but no match for a real IDE.

The image you're shows us is a HTML document not JavaScript. Notepad++ is does not see the JavaScript inside a HTML document.

If you where editing a JavaScript document the IDE scripting language would be set for JavaScript.
Otherwise you can change the language between HTML and JavaScript anytime you want.
