Insert Code Block feature could be improved RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I've noticed two things about the Insert Code Block feature in the forums I don't like. First, when I paste or write code with indented statements, the indentation is reduced. I've standardized on indenting 4 spaces, but when I click Submit, this gets reduced to two spaces. Then each time the code is copied in subsequent replies, the indenting gets further reduced, or I must spend time restoring the spaces. Here is a quick example:

    Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
      strName = Trim(objFile.ReadLine)
      If (strName <> "") Then
        Wscript.Echo strName
      End If
    Loop

     

    Second, if I later edit a post, any code previously inserted seems to get double spaced. One major purpose of the Insert Code Block feature is to prevent this. An example is my last post in this thread. The first code block in the post got double spaced when I edited to add the second code block:
