Hi!

We just downloaded the trial and the whole team loves this editor, it´s fantastic, we will switch to PhpED right away.
With that said I´m requesting a feature: Surround code.
This is a feature that the Java IDE - IDEA has.

1. Select a piece of code and hit the "Surround code" shortcut.
2. Select the "surround type" for example "try - catch" or "try - finally"
3. The selected code is indented and try/catch brackets and inserted.

The code:
Code:

    echo "i´m a lobster";


would after surrounding code be:

Code:

   try {
        echo "i´m a lobster";
    } catch(Exception $e) {
        print($e->getMessage());
    }


It´s very useful if you wan´t to add a try/catch or similar to a piece of code.
I guess that the template feature could be used if there´s a way of not replacing the selected code like putting a "@1" (or similar)" that substitutes the selected code.

This is just my 2 cents. =)

Hmm, it's quite simple, especially taking into account that we just implemented such "surrounding" for Edit->Html tags.
Probably, we'll do it for code templates soon too.

It will be available in 4.5.1, I think.

Hi!

Did this feature make it into 4.6.1? I´m afraid I can´t find it.

regards,
pommes

well, try the following:

enter code template (tools->settings) like below:

Code:
try {
    |
} catch(Exception $e) {
    print($e->getMessage());
}


create new file, with content
Code:
<?
  echo "i´m a lobster";
?>


select content of the 2nd line (starting with echo and ending up with semicolon),
press Ctrl-J and select your template.

Awesome feature, but:

Select Code
Pressing Ctrl+J
Pressing keys t-r-y to autoselect "trycatch"-template, the selected code is removed.

when:

Select Code
Pressing Ctrl+J
Using mouse to select "trycatch" works just fine.

*bumping the thread* This has probably become a bug-report now. =)
