Hi,

How can I make Scintilla to add tabs, spaces from the beginning of current line to the beginning of the next line while pressing Enter?
I mean that when I press enter on the line:
    a
the next line should begin with " " (7 spaces).

Thank you.

I think you want the Scintilla.Indentation.SmartIndentType property. Try setting it to SmartIndent.Simple.

Yes. This is it, thanks. Actually I've created custom handling of this, but sure it's better to use native methods if they are available.
