Code "folding" in NetBeans IDE 7.2 [message #179371] Sat, 13 October 2012 12:34 Go to next message

I can't get code folding to work in NetBeans IDE 7.2. In Tools > Options > Editor I have Use Code Folding checked and I have editor-fold comments but nothing is indicated as foldable/collapsable. I read about a bug if you don't have an initial comment so I added an initial comment but that didn't change a thing.

I am new to both NetBeans and PHP so there is probably just some really basic thing which I am missing. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Bob

I have learned that the Folding feature does work for HTML, but not PHP. ?

Works for me in 7.1.2. Do other code intelligence features ("Go to
type", "Show method parameters"...) work as expected? (Whatever,
NetBeans tends to include half-baked features that break in new releases.)

Hi Álvaro, Thanks very much for your interest in my problem. I do not know where to find the other code intelligence features. If I right click on a variable the context menu contains Cut/Copy/Paste and Select in Projects. Code is not the only feature which does not work. It underlines (with a red wavy line) variable and function names. But it gets confused by underscores. So, for example, "mysqli_connect_errno" has "mysqli" and "errno" underlined but "_connect_" is not underlined! It also gets confused by strings and thinks for example, that a close brace, "}", in a string closes a block of code.

What might I have done wrong?

Thanks, Bob

You're asking in the wrong newsgroup. Try NetBeans support.

Hint: if you can find it in the doc at php.net, it's probably a PHP
question. If not, it probably isn't.

There is nothing in php.net related to NetBeans.


Go to the correct support structure and you'll get a good answer. Go to
the wrong support structure (i.e. comp.lang.php in this case) and you'll
get not so good answers.

Resolution: I thought I had downloaded a NetBeans package with all of the bells and whistles included. And it may have many of the bells and whistles included but did not have the PHP plugin. I found some tutorial material specifically about PHP editing but even it did not mention needing the PHP plugin.

If PHP editing seems really broken go to Tools > Plugins and make sure you have the PHP plugin.
