 Description  « Hide
FDT already have sth similar - autocolapsing of comments,
Please add floading feature for custom regions of code like in Visual Studio. It would be also nice to save floading settings (colapsed\expanded) and restored after reopen the file.

//#region abc

When region is collapsed only region name is displayed

Since there is no progress on the issue I would like to give real live example of how much useful this feature may be.

Lets say you have TestSuite containing Tests for few pagkages like in as3core lib ex.
// utils
ts.addTestSuite( StringUtilTest );
ts.addTestSuite( NumberFormatterTest );
ts.addTestSuite( ArrayUtilTest );
ts.addTestSuite( DateUtilTest );
ts.addTestSuite( IntUtilTest );
ts.addTestSuite( XMLUtilTest );
ts.addTestSuite( DictionaryUtilTest );

// crypto
ts.addTestSuite( HMACSHA1Test );
ts.addTestSuite( HMACMD5Test );
ts.addTestSuite( MD5Test );
ts.addTestSuite( SHA1Test );
ts.addTestSuite( SHA224Test );
ts.addTestSuite( SHA256Test );
ts.addTestSuite( WSSEUsernameTokenTest );

ts.addTestSuite( JPGEncoderTest );
ts.addTestSuite( PNGEncoderTest );

How having regions feature would allow to see only 3 collapsed groups instead of many lines

Any chance you have a link to a screenshot or video of this in action?

Sure Alan. Here you are
(the cursor is invisible, but I am using small plus sign in the left to expand/colapse the regions)

I've zipped up this video and attached it for archive reasons.

Note to dev

Developer would use a particular syntax to define the start/stop areas.

If by 'Not to dev' you are saying it's not possible to develop because of syntax....
I agree that we cannot change Actionscript syntax, but on the other hand comments may be used.
//#region abc

I understand it's a little bit of hack, but I believe this is the way 'regions floating' works with eclipse + java.

Nah...that was a typo. It's supposed to say 'Note To dev' That's a note for me to remember when we look at the issue again. Sometimes we write 'hint to dev'.
