JavaScript Preferences

To configure the JavaScript format options, open the Preferences dialog box and go to Editor > Format > JavaScript.

The following options control the behavior of the Format and Indent action:

  • Start curly brace on new line - Opening curly braces start on a new line.
  • Preserve empty lines - Empty lines in the JavaScript code are preserved. This option is selected by default.
  • Allow formatting embedded JavaScript - Applied only to XHTML documents, this option allows Oxygen XML Author plugin to format embedded JavaScript code, taking precedence over the Schema aware format and indent option. This option is selected by default.
