Xojo Code Folding

I was talking with another Xojo developer and we both commented on how neither of us use Code Folding in the Code Editor.  I’ve been using Xojo for fifteen years and this developer is at least ten years.

If you’re not familiar with code folding it’s the ability to collapse an entire branch of an If – Then statement, Select – Case, For – Next, While – Wend, and probably a few others.  The code doesn’t go away, it’s just temporarily hidden.  It’s a convenient way to hide a good chunk of code so you can easily see what else is going on around it.

The other developer and I discussed this issue for a while and we really couldn’t come up with a good reason why.  The best reason we could come up with is that it *looks* like the code has been deleted.  Like I said, it wasn’t a good reason but at least it was a reason.

Do you use Code Folding? If not, why?

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year folks!  Stay safe, enjoy time your family, and happy coding!
