[Feature] double-click on PHP variable name to select '$' as well as character part
If I specify that the language in a file is PHP, I’d like np++ to select the entire variable name
when I double-click on it, not just the ‘name’ part.
PhpStorm, for example, does this & it seems the natural thing to do.
Would really appreciate this.
Starting with the 7.3.1 version of N++, you can change the default word characters list ( any character matched by the regex
Select the menu option Settings > Preferences… > Delimiter > Word character List
Click on the choice : Add your character as part of word
Type in the
$character, in the field
Close the Preferences dialog
Et voilà !
Strangely, the regex
\w, still, does NOT match the $ symbol !?. Therefore, a PHP variable name should be matched with the regex
A double-click on words , containing the
$symbol or ending with it will, also, select them !
