Hello Actipro,

it is possible to format XML inside a SyntaxEditor with indented attributes organized in columns? Example:

Default format:

<Root>
  <Parent name="first" year="2022">
    <Child name="Peter" nickname="Pete" job="teacher" />
    <Child name="John" nickname="Joe" job="doctor" />
    <Child name="Frank" job="unemployed" />
  <Parent>
  <Parent name="second" year="2023">
    <Child name="Lucas" nickname="Luc" job="bakerman" />
    <Child name="Philip" nickname="Phil" job="taxidriver" />
  <Parent>
</Root>


Wanted format:

<Root>
  <Parent name="first"  year="2022">
    <Child name="Peter"  nickname="Pete" job="teacher" />
    <Child name="John"   nickname="Joe"  job="doctor" />
    <Child name="Frank"                  job="unemployed" />
  <Parent>
  <Parent name="second" year="2023">
    <Child name="Lucas"  nickname="Luc"  job="bakerman" />
    <Child name="Philip" nickname="Phil" job="taxidriver" />
  <Parent>
</Root>

Is there a way to archieve this?

Regards
Sascha

Hi Sascha,

I'm sorry but we don't have any logic in the add-on to do aligned attributes like that.  You would have to code that kind of logic yourself.
