Draw a line over function definitions? [message #1839543] Tue, 23 March 2021 15:28 Go to next message

Not sure if this is the correct forum for feature requests. Please redirect my appropriately if not.

My company uses Google coding conventions which put the function curly brace on the same line as the function definition. I find this hard to see where functions start especially with 80 column line wrapping in effect. Emacs has an IDE feature called Decorate Tags that draws a line over the function (see attached image).

Any chance others would like this too? Could this be added to CDT?

Thanks!

Not quite but checkout Window --> Preferences --> C/C++ --> Editor --> Syntax Coloring

Thanks for the reply. I have done what I can there. I have functions bold, bright green and underlined. It helps but it's not as nice as what Emacs does. I really like the indexing and refactoring of Eclipse CDT so I don't want to "just use Emacs". I do use Emacs+ in Eclipse to make my fingers happy.
