Split String for PHP
« on: January 28, 2022, 08:01:53 am »
Hello there,
Today while I was reading the help file about "Comments" I found this feature about "Split String" and would love to have it for PHP.
It does not seem to be available right now (the checkbox is disabled, though ticked)
The Help page suggests to request it. So here am I...
I would love to be able to press ENTER and have quotes + '.' symbol added:

Code: [Select]
   "Starting a becomes on pressing ENTER :
Code: [Select]
   "Starting a "
  ." string

Thanks and regards.

I think the limitation is that PHP double quoted strings are multi-line. This split feature seems to be done for strings which are not multi-line where there is less ambiguity.
