Indentation Annoyance

Indentation Annoyance

Postby guillermooo on Sat May 29, 2010 8:44 am

I'm using the latest beta.

Take this snippet:
Code: Select all
$sw = new-object diagnostics.stopwatch
$testCases = orderVariablesByScriptLine (get-variable -name "*TestCase" `
                                                        -scope 1 `
                                                        -erroraction silentlycontinue)

If I wanted to add a new parameter, the current logic works great. The problem arises when I need to place the cursor at a lower indentation level. If I press tab on the next blank line, the cursor will always be aligned with "-erroraction".

You can work around this by typing a space first and then pressing tab (translateTabsToSpaces on), but I thought I'd mention this.

The problem seems to be that the magic tag tracking the indentation level isn't removed when I've deleted the suggested indentantion the first time.

You can stop this by removing the binding for 'reindent'.

I'm not sure there's a simple way to solve it otherwise, apart from making it smart enough to parse the previous text and determine that the bracket has been closed off.
