Format All

WARNING: This blog entry was imported from my old blog on blogs.sun.com (which used different blogging software), so formatting and links may not be correct.

One feature I'm missing from NetBeans is the ability to format a whole project, or a package or directory. Opening each file only to press Ctrl-Shift-F to format it is just too cumbersome.

Fortunately, this is trivial to fix. I wrote a simple plugin to do this, and uploaded it to the Plugin Portal:

Once you've installed the plugin, you can right click on projects, or select a project, package (nonrecursive folder) or directory, and choose Source | Format Files.
