Code Folding

Code folding allows you to collapse a block of code – you can use it  to focus on high-level structure without getting lost in the detail.

To enable code folding enable to option under the Script Editor section of Preferences, found under the File menu.

I use it with my user-defined functions to give me an overview of contents within an include file.  Combined with appropriately placed comments this helps to summarise the contents of a library of functions.  Here is an example:

  1. Thank you David for the post.
    is there any place i can get an extensive list of functions for this. i made one for myself but it seems like every time i use a new (for me) function i need to update it manually.

  2. Unfortunately there is no in-built mechanism to get a list of your user-defined functions. There are a couple of DIY approaches: either (1) write a script to scan your JSL files to identify the function names or (2) use document generating software to automatically generate the list of functions (I use NaturalDocs)
