Description fernandojmartin 2011-10-11 18:08:01 UTC
I'd love to have a dotted/dashed vertical line like in, for instance, Notepadd++ ( showing the tree depth of the code.

In the image (I Googled for it) there's HTML but the same happens with PHP and other languages.
Even brace highlighting is a great visual aid, havind the tree depth is fantastic to instantly recognize the depth or find the matching brace (sometimes wrongly indented accidentally).

I second this.
I'm starting to use NetBeans in replacement of Komodo Edit, and I this is one of the feature I need (with block code folding in PHP, for which a ticket is already opened).

It's very usefull in languages with a lot of multi-line alignement is needed, like PHP and especially JS (where a lot of recursive declaration of code is often needed).

Thanks in advance to people who will be able to code and plan this enhancement.
