    It would be REAL cool if the editor could display branch lines for control statements so it would make it real easy to know the indentation level even for off-screen statements like for/next, if/else, select/case:

    I like the idea in theory, but I used another similar product for another language and it slowed down editing because it always has to recalc and redraw the lines when the code is being edited. Perhaps a more efficient way of would be to have a tool bar icon or hot-key that would display the branch lines on demand?

    Are you talking about Axtools' CodeSmart for VB6?

    If so, I think the reason for the delay and redraws was that the maker of that tool was trying to jerry-rig this feature outside of VB6's IDE because he didn't have direct access to the IDE like Microsoft had.

    But since Erel has more direct access to B4x's internal editor, this might not be a problem.

    I have used it for many years and it is very useful.
