  EditorEnhancement  //  Text AutoTyping

AutoTyping is an automatic statements completion and formatting according to the current settings of the Developer Studio IDE. Besides reducing the number of keystrokes required to accomplish a particular programming task, this feature also decreases errors due to typos, increases productivity, and most importantly, encourages excellent and consistent programming style!

AutoTyping is absolutely transparent to use! You need not press any special keys or click toolbar button to activate it! Simply type the first char(s) of the statement and press the "SPACE" button and instantly the rest of the statement will automatically be filled in according to your preferences.

EditorEnhancement add-in provides some number of standard statements. The table below contains a full list of standard statements, which may be autotyped (symbol designates the position of the cursor after autotyping):

required char(s) resulting statement
i if ()
  {
  }
e else
  
ei else if ()
  {
  }
f for ()
  {
  }
d do
  {
  } while ();
w while ()
  {
  }
s switch ()
  {
  case :
  }
c case :
de default:
  
b break;
co continue;
r return ;
r; return;
#d #define
#i #include ""
required char(s) resulting statement
#i< #include <>
/* /* */
cl class
st struct
p public
p: public:
  
pr private:
  
pro protected:
  
t typedef
tr try
  {
  }
catch ()
  {
  }
cat catch ()
  {
  }
T TRY
  {
  }
CATCH ()
  {
  }
END_CATCH
C CATCH ()
  {
  }

 

Add-in allows defining another (custom) statements, according to your personal needs and preferences. Process of custom statements definition is described in Add-in Options section.

You are allowed also to set your own key or key combination that causes statement autotyping instead of predefined "SPACE" key. For example you can set such a combination : ALT+SHIFT+CTRL+F4. We do not think that this possibility is very important, but Inpek 7th World team proceedes from the fact that people are too different to force all of them to like the same.

Complete list of possible key combinations is presented below:

Virtual key  Modifiers
VK_SPACE
VK_BACK VK_F1
VK_LEFT VK_F2
VK_RIGHT VK_F3
VK_UP VK_F4
VK_DOWN VK_F5
VK_PRIOR VK_F6
VK_NEXT VK_F7
VK_INSERT VK_F8
VK_DELETE VK_F9
VK_TAB VK_F10
VK_HOME VK_F11
VK_END VK_F12

  CTRL

  SHIFT

  ALT

Tip: you can press SHFT+SPACE instead of SPACE to avoid AutoTyping.

The AutoTyping options setup allows you to specify its settings or even completely disable this feature.
