- Outline View
The Outline view is designed to give you an easy to digest overview of your entire file. The real benefit is that when working in large files, you can filter your view based on the type of tag. You can filter on the currently selected element, or on a list of predefined tags such as cfmodule, cfset, cfquery, cfinclude, and cfcase.Read More
Another popular feature is the ability of the IDE to track comments containing TODO items. Any comment that contains the string "TODO:" is tracked globally and can be viewed in the tasks view. When looking at the tasks view you can double-click on a task and the relevant file will be opened with the cursor on the line where the TODO: marker is located.Read More
- Code Folding
When working in large files it is often helpful to highlight a section of code and collapse it. This feature adds an icon to the left margin allowing you to expand and collapse this section of code as you need it. By default, when you open a file it will collapse CFML and HTML comments and cffunction blocks that span more than three lines.Read More
- Problem View
CFEclipse also includes a parser that checks for syntax errors in your ColdFusion document. When problems are found, they are compiled into a list that is easily viewable. Parser problems are also underlined in the text of the document. This makes it much easier to see exactly where the parser found a problem and it is usually relatively easy to spot the cause, such as an extra tag in a nested set of if statements.Read More
