    The Options dialog box is displayed.

    If you have configured your environment settings for Web development, the elements of this node are not available unless you select the Show all settings check box. For more information about environment settings, see How to: Change Select Settings.

Statement completion

Selecting these options activates automatic statement completion in the Source view editor.

Hide advanced members

This option is not available.

Settings

Enable virtual space

When this check box is selected and the Word wrap check box is cleared, you can click anywhere beyond the end of a line in the code editor and type. This feature can be used to position comments at a consistent point next to your code.

Word wrap

When this check box is selected, any portion of a line that extends horizontally beyond the viewable editor area is automatically displayed on the next line. Selecting this option enables the Show visual glyphs for word wrap check box.

Show visual glyphs for word wrap

When this check box is selected, a return arrow indicator (LineBreakSymbol screenshot) is displayed where a long line wraps onto a second line. Clear this check box to not display these indicators.

NoteNote:

These return arrows are not added to your code, and they do not print. They are for reference only.

Apply Cut or Copy commands to blank lines when there is no selection

This check box sets the following behavior of the editor when you place the insertion point on a blank line, select nothing, and then use the Copy or the Cut command:

  • When this check box is selected, the blank line is copied or deleted. If you then use the Paste command, a new blank line is inserted.

  • When this check box is cleared, nothing is copied or deleted. If you then use the Paste command, the content most recently copied is inserted. If nothing has been copied previously, nothing is inserted.

This setting has no effect on the Copy or Cut commands when a line is not blank. If nothing is selected, the entire line is copied or deleted. If you then apply the Paste command, the text of the entire line and its endline character are inserted.

NoteNote:

To display indicators for spaces, tabs, and line ends (which lets you distinguish indented lines from lines that are entirely blank), select Advanced from the Edit menu and choose View White Space.

Display

Line numbers

When this check box is selected, a line number appears next to each line in Source view.

NoteNote:

These line numbers are not added to your code, and they do not print. They are for reference only.

Enable single-click URL navigation

When this check box is selected, the mouse pointer changes to a pointing hand as it passes over a URL in Source view. You can click the URL to browser to the Web site.
