Format ECL Code

Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

Is there a way to select and format ECL code within the IDE? Is there a keyboard shortcut? I've been sifting through documentation and haven't found anything. For example, let's assume that I've copied some ECL in from a notepad++ document.

The short answer is NO, you need to do that manually. Of course, the compiler doesn't care how unreadable your code is as long as it's syntactically correct. :)

The longer answer is: HPCC/ECL is Open Source, so you are cordially invited to contribute to its development. ;)
