Hi,

Im trying to work out how to get word-wrap during editing only.

i.e. not code formatting in the original source file - but during display/edit - is this possible?

Cheers,
Buzz

Buzz,
No that currenlty isn't supported by the editors. I'm actually not aware of an IDE that does this as content is line-sensative, so word-wrap negates that mapping that is required.

Just about every editor I've used before eclipse (and myeclipse) had word-wrap capability. It's a common feature in almost all windows based editors. These include Homesite, Coldfusion Studio and Dreamweaver. If you are doing front-end web developement in HTML/PHP/JSP then Dreamweaver's probably your best bet, although I always liked the simplicity of Homesite (just not sure if it's still being supported). For J2EE I'd recommend JBuilder or IntelliJ.

I should have clarified what I meant by "IDE", I meant "J2EE IDE". Consider a typical debugging session, you put a break point on line 22, that is actually a really long line start starts on line 18 and has been wrapped 4 lines. When the break point is hit where is the debugger support to mark the editor?

These issues is why I'm not aware of any word wrapping in any J2EE IDE.

Windows-based editors? Sure, they all have them. Then again, they don't have debugging.

The debugger support marks the editor on line 18....as far as it's concerned there is no 18-22, only line 18. The word-wrap is for visual purposes only and uses virtual returns recognized by the GUI as opposed to an actual return that creates a new line.
I think more people will be clamoring for word-wrap as web 2.0 people start getting on board w/myeclipse...

I'm going to piss and moan about this one more time. Here's the link to the bug for this in Eclipse: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=35779
It just borders on ridiculous. It's the primary reason I still use Homesite 5.5 and Notepad++ on the side.

90 votes... really surprising it hadn't been addressed yet.

Include me. World wrap is a must have feature.

Even Netbeans has it. Most of editors/IDEs just skip the line number, so there is no problem for debuggers. It's a purely visual thing...

Wow! That feature has still not been implemented. What a shame! I agree that this is a must feature.

roman2,

As Riyad has clarified earlier that this is currently not supported in J2EE IDE. If eclipse provides support, we will also include the support in our future versions.

Best.

You may try the com.ahtik.wordwrap feature which URL is :
http://ahtik.com/eclipse-update/
I use it for a while now in every Eclipse deployment
* from Eclipse
* from Zend
* from MyEclipse

It is very convenient to be able to view a file with no horizontal scrolling even if you dont want to edit it in that mode.
