Unindent Method

EditPoint.Unindent Method

Removes the indent characters from the selected lines by the given number of indentation levels.

Namespace:  EnvDTE
Assembly:  EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)

void Unindent(
	TextPoint Point,
	int Count


Type: EnvDTE.TextPoint

Optional. The endpoint. Defaults to the endpoint, causing the current line in the buffer to be outdented. The default value is one indentation level.

Type: System.Int32

Optional. The number of display columns to indent each line. The default is 1.

Unindent removes Count levels of indentation from each line between the edit point and Point, including the lines that contain these endpoints. The number of columns that display in a level of indentation is determined by a global setting. Tabs and characters are deleted and inserted as necessary to remove one indentation level according to the current global settings for tab size and indent level size.

If Count is negative, then Unindent performs similarly to Indent.

Unindent fails if Count is greater than or equal to 10,000.

Sub UnindentExample()
  ' Before running this example, open a text document.
  Dim objTD As TextDocument
  Dim objEP As EditPoint

  objTD = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")
  objEP = objTD.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint
End Sub
