Tabs, All Languages, Text Editor, Options Dialog Box
This dialog box allows you to change the default behavior of the Code Editor. These settings also apply to other editors based upon the Code Editor, such as the HTML Designer's Source view. To display these options, select Options from the Tools menu. Within the Text Editor folder expand the All Languages subfolder, and then choose Tabs.
This page sets default options for all development languages. Remember that resetting an option in this dialog will reset the Tabs options in all languages to whatever choices are selected here. To change Text Editor options for just one language, expand the subfolder for that language and select its option pages.
If different settings are selected on the Tabs options pages for particular programming languages, then the message "The indentation settings for individual text formats conflict with each other," is displayed for differing Indenting options; and the message "The tab settings for individual text formats conflict with each other," is displayed for differing Tab options. For example, this reminder is displayed if the Smart indenting option is selected for Visual Basic, but Block indenting is selected for Visual C++.
The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
