Tab handling in the script editor.

Tab handling in the script editor. - 16/08/04 12:23 AM

I think the tab key would be better if it was handle as a 'tab' rather than switching focus in the script editor. I use Notepad a lot for writing HTML, CSS, etc. and I'm constantly using tab to indent each line. I think it would be good if the script editor would handle tab the same way.

Sorry if this has already been suggested, my search didn't return anything.

Perhaps it should. In case you don't know though, you can get a tab by using Ctrl+I.

I'm aware of Ctrl+I, however, if you use it in a dialog table for example, it returns the following errors:
* /dialog: 'test' invalid table, in 'title[ tab ]'
* /dialog: 'test' invalid table, in '[ tab ]title'
[ tab ] of course being the tab character ($chr(9)).

Edit: the error depending on where the tab is used, they're not both returned.

The only way to avoid that is if the Script Editor converted the Tab button into a certain amount of spaces (even if it used tab-alignment to figure out how many spaces to use).
