At the end of every region the outlining shows a tick mark designating the end of the region. I would also like to underline the last line of the region just as Visual studios :). Can this be done now?

Thanks

Hehehe... I guess only the VB settings cause that to happen in VS2005. I haven't seen what you're talking about.

Probably wouldn't be a difficult feature to add if they don't already have it.

Hi Leif,

Yes those are called content dividers. You can read about them in the "SyntaxEditor Text Visualization Features / Content Dividers" help topic.

okay i found that, it works in your test app but only under vb script not vb.net addon. Any reason for this?

It has to do with how the lexers are defined in the two various languages. In the dynamic one, we have special tokens for the various End ??? keywords where the token is both words. This makes it easy to identify them and set up the content dividers on the tokens.

In the add-on, the keywords End and Sub for instance are parsed separately. So there is nothing really to identify (from the lexer's perspective that is) that it should receive a content divider. Perhaps this is something we can add down the road however it will take some redesign to get there.

So what your saying is is that it doesn't work with the addon yet?
