Description Vladimir Riha 2012-07-15 16:48:56 UTC
Consider following snippet:

var bugs = [
        {id: "206836",
    title: "Title",
    priority: 1

This is considered as formatted (Format action does nothing). I can imagine better result, for instance:

var bugs = [
    {id: "206836",
    title: "Title",
    priority: 1}];

Or something like that.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201207140002)
Java: 1.7.0; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 21.0-b17
System: Linux version 3.5.0-4-generic running on amd64; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

Yeah I experience the same problem. However in the preview it works :)

For your sample my result is:
var bugs = [
    {id: "206836",
        title: "Title",
        priority: 1

If I configure wrap always for Object and Object Properties result is:

var bugs = [
        id: "206836",
        title: "Title",
        priority: 1

You should definitely try 201308141142. Looks like duplicate of issue #234244.
Comment 4 Vladimir Riha 2013-08-19 06:56:57 UTC
Thanks for update, it seems better now, especially if I modify the wrapping or move curly brace to the [

var bugs = [{
        id: "206836",
        title: "Title",
        priority: 1

then this is considered formatted, which I agree with :)

Ok, closing.

I would like to reopen this ticket, if its better to use a new ticket then tell it me :).

I have similar formatting issues with object literals inside an array which is inside an object. Please see the 2 screenshots for more details.

wrong formatting

The arrows show what I expected.

expected behaviour

First one is ok, second one is what I got when I format the code and third is what I expect for foo.
