Description _ wadechandler 2012-02-13 13:37:21 UTC
To reproduce: 1) Go to Tools|Options|Editor|Formatting 2) Notice in the language drop down there is no Groovy
Comment 1 Geertjan Wielenga 2012-02-13 13:49:00 UTC
What kind of formatting changes would you like to be able to make?
Comment 2 Petr Jiricka 2012-02-14 16:40:52 UTC
Comment 3 _ wadechandler 2012-02-15 16:22:28 UTC
Groovy would have mostly the Java ones if it isn't already using Java formatting; in which case it might be easy enough to change it from Java to read Java/Groovy. Perhaps some special things for tuples, lists, and closure syntax.

Currently not using the Java formatting, appears to use the default Java formatting. Nice if it would at least use the same formatting that the user defines for Java.
Comment 5 Martin Janicek 2012-10-10 08:50:18 UTC
I'll try to do this for the Next release.
Comment 6 _ wadechandler 2013-03-01 18:48:13 UTC
I haven't yet looked, and I am getting ready to start reviewing groovy support. Been using Intellij for it. But, is this not in 7.3? Is there any plan for when if not?

Comment 8 _ wadechandler 2013-03-03 13:00:51 UTC
Thanks for the update Martin. I am looking forward to this. This probably one of the most used features of an ide. It saves time and keeps tidy especially when copying and pasting or using various features which may or may not get formatting correct when they insert code.
Comment 9 _ wadechandler 2013-03-03 13:06:22 UTC
I moved it to a p2 per the wiki guidelines. This falls under critical usability since one must use a separate tool like mvn and go back and forth to a cli window or use some other custom action as the work around.

Agree with increasing priority. BTW: I'll add you to the CC of the issue 224640 as that is the correct ticket for tracking new formatter.
