One of our users just determined that he prefers to use spaces (4?) instead
of tabs.
We changed the default text editor - and this doesn't affect our DLTK based
editor.
Is there any way to control this - or must we create our own editor
preferences dialog?
If we do, what could/should we call to change this behavior internally?

Thanks,
Chuck

Hello chuck,

go to preferences, general, editors, text editors
an deactivate "Insert spaces for tabs"
than go to preferences, tcl, editor
and activate Tab policy to "Spaces only"

if you want more functionality, you can install a other plugin
called "AnyEdit Tools"

btw, you should all of your user suggest to use spaces instead tabs.
it's better ;-}}}

best regards
gunter

Hi Chuck,

For other DLTK-languages it is controlled via preferences, the
preference keys are declared in the
org.eclipse.dltk.ui.CodeFormatterConstants class. The processing of
these preferences is done in both of the DLTK base code and language
specific code. The necessary part is to override some methods in the
*SourceViewerConfiguration.

For example of the preference page you can look at the
org.eclipse.dltk.ruby.internal.ui.preferences.RubyEditorPref erencesPage
class.

Regards,
Alex
