How can I disable the auto block indent introduced in build 531? I already had custom indenting implemented, and the built-in block indent is conflicting with it.

Best Regards,

Hello,

Block indent is now the default behavior when the language doesn't have an IIndentProvider service registered.

You can register an indent provider service with the language using the SyntaxLanguage.RegisterIndentProvider (an extension method in SyntaxLanguageExtensions) and set its mode to None to go back to the old behavior.

Alternatively, you can implement the custom smart indent logic in the IIndentProvider service now that it is the proper place to do it.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Whenever I return 4 in the GetIndentAmount method, SynatxEditor inserts a \t character, but I don't want that, I want to insert only characters. How can I control that?

Hello,

The document (ITextDocument) has an AutoConvertTabsToSpaces property, which is used in this case to determine whether to convert the result into tabs.

The default value is true.

Please let us know if you have further questions.
