(corrected) Turn off +/- outline symbol for one line scope

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

I had a typo in my previous posting, however I can neither edit it nor reply to it. So I post the corrected version as a new topic. Sorry for the confusion.


I am trying to define visual studio style multi-line comment state. The comment symbol is "!".

<ExplicitPatternGroup Type="StartScope" Token="CommentStartToken" Style="CommentDelimiterStyle" PatternValue="!" />
<RegexPatternGroup Type="EndScope" Token="CommentEndToken" Style="CommentDelimiterStyle" PatternValue="\n" LookAhead="[ \t]*[^!]" /> 
I also implemented my custom semantic parser to enable the outlining. It works great.

I have a question though. Is there a way to turn off the outline symbol for single line comment since there's nothing to expand and collapse? Showing the for each and every single line comment is distracting.

Right now there isn't an easy way to switch outlining indicators on or off based on whether they span lines. We have that on our TODO list to try and find a way to do it.
