Display Options

Applies to TestComplete 15.0, last modified on October 14, 2021

The Display settings of Code Editor options control how the Code Editor displays its contents. The settings are organized into the following sections:

Text

  • Font name - Lists all fonts installed on your system and specifies the one to use in the Editor. You can quickly preview fonts in the drop-down window by hovering the mouse pointer over the font name in the list.

  • Font size - Lists available point sizes for the selected font.

  • Control characters - If this option is enabled, the Editor displays spaces, tabs and line breaks using special characters, so that you can distinguish, for instance, a tab from a string of spaces.

  • Outlining - Enables or disables outlining.

  • Automatic Outlining - If this option is enabled, TestComplete automatically outlines routines and multiline comments.

  • Word wrap - Specifies whether the Editor automatically breaks long strings into several lines when the string is too long for the Editor window. The lines are wrapped at the right margin or, if the margin is not displayed, at the right side of the Editor’s visible area. To indicate that a string is broken into several lines, the Editor gutter displays the marker for that line.

Background

  • Style - The background style. You can select one of the four gradient effects or empty background (None). To select the color of the gradient fill, use the Start color and End color controls.

  • Start color and End color - The start and end color for the gradient fill and are used when the Style option is not None.

  • Right margin - The right margin is a thin vertical line to specify where your break lines are. This setting defines whether the line is shown in the Editor window.

  • Right margin position - The position of the right margin line within the Editor window. The position is specified in pixels from the left side of the window.

Gutter

The gutter is the area on the left side of the Code Editor that shows line numbers, bookmarks and breakpoint markers. You can customize the gutter’s look and feel using the following options:

  • Style - The background style for the gutter. You can select one of the four gradient effects or None. To select the color of the gradient fill, use the Start color and End color controls.

  • Start color and End color - The start and end color for the gradient fill and are used when the Style option is not None.

  • Gutter capacity - The gutter width in relative units. It means how many markers for Bookmarks, Breakpoints and Outlining buttons can be placed in the gutter on one line.

  • Line numbers - Specifies whether to show line numbers in the gutter.
