Can block comments be customized in editor?

Hello - Is there any way to customize the block comment settings in the PHPEd editor? I work with Smarty a lot, and it would helpful to be able block-comment a selection in a .tpl file by pressing Ctrl+Shift+/, like in PHP or Javascript code.

As an alternative approach to the above: When creating a snippet, is it possible to include a placeholder for the text selected in the editor, something like:
{* [selection] *}
That way, if the snippet is linked to a shortcut key, one could select text and press the key, and the selection would be wrapped in comment tags.
Thanks in advance!!

Hi Dmitri,

I understand that there is no block commenting for Smarty in the current version of PHPEd - but how about my more general question, concerning ways to work around that, like with a snippet that can incorporate the current selection in the editor? (OR... is there some way to create our own block comments in a configuration file?)

Thanks again,
Gordon

Hi, If all you require at this stage is a snippet, they are very easy to make as I have discovered courtesy of @dmitri.

I have made some blocks for PhpDoc etc that have saved me oodles of brainache.

Kind regards,

Many thanks for your message, jB! I hope you are keeping well in this time.

I do already work with snippets and find them extremely useful. Are you able to answer my original question: How to create a snippet that incorporates the text selected in the editor, like:

{* [selection] *}

That way, I could assign it to a shortcut key, then create a Smarty comment by selecting text and pressing the key.

Thanks also to Dmitri for continuing to develop and support PhpED! I have tried *many* PHP IDEs, and PhpED continues to support my work process better than anything else out there!

Regards,
Gordon
