I guess folding depends on your used lexer. So e.g. if you use cpp lexer it can fold at the occurrence of { or }.

Perhaps this Discussion can help you [link]

I think this is not possible with the buildin mssql language, the only possible folding seems to be for the Comments ( /* some Comment  */ ).

To achieve folding for some SQL statement I guess you have to write your own Lexer, which I've never done...

Perhaps Chris Rickard can help you with this problem.

Best Regards

The mssql lexer supports folding at block comments, begin/end, and case statements. Make sure that you have a fold margin visible (default is Margins[2]) by giving it a non-zero width (20 should be enough).

you need to modify directly le SciLexer code source into the file LexMSSQL.cxx


into the function FoldMSSQLDoc

 you need to add this code source

if ((strcmp(s, "select") == 0) {
if (strcmp(s, "from") == 0) {
