Dear Powerflashers,

Could you add some visual improvements to FDT's Editor?

1). Highlight method/block under caret.
Would be nice to visually identify the bounds of current method. Intellij IDEA offers a buch of features:

  • vertical lines going from the block declaration till the last caret (see attachement)
  • highlighting the current bracket pair
  • highlighting whole method
    The idea behind this is to be able easily identify the bounds of the method, current code block (highligthing matched bracers).

2). Expand the list of colorizable definitions. Basically, I'd like all integers to be in red color, bracers to be bold with dark background, member variables in blue color, constant variable in orange and so on. But you should get the point. Currently we can choose color for keywords, constants and comments, but would be nice to have this list filled with more options.

3). And yes, as I've sometimes mentioned a colorized background of a symbol - we could consider that as feature request.

I guess this could be linked with FDT-1921
