This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit IBMI-I-378 Collapse a section in RPG source..

Add the ability to collaspe or expand ILE RPG code sections in RDi. Merged

In other code editors such as PyCharm from JetBrains, sections of code that are considered blocks can be expanded or collasped as needed. In totally free form RPGLE it would be great if we could do the same. We should be able to collaspe sections of code such as procedures, loops, selects, and if statements. Also we should be given the ability to expand or collaspe all these code sections from a right click menu in the editor.
