    Hey guys. Im still here, been spending a decent amount of time on other stuff and finding it difficult to post as much as id like, but i AM still here! :biggrin

    Im looking for a program to help with coding in VBS, one that colours text based on function etc, and that also auto-indents (for things like if statements).

    I've got vbsedit (not free but unlimited trial version) and emeditor (free for the version ive got), but they dont seem to be able to auto-indent - or if they can i cant figure out how to make them do it.

    emeditor is also a pain since i cant figure out how to set the default config to vbs.

    can anyone help either get these working how id like, or recommend a good editor that can do this (preferably free).

    Thanks
    Fergal

    Here's a nice little one I found the other day Syn Text Editor.

    Looks nice too.

    ooo, good one. i like the ftp support. not many (freeware) editors have that. i'm having trouble finding the full list of supported scripting languages though. :unsure

    syn looks quite good. although, and i may be being blind here, its still not auto-indenting.

    correct me if im wrong here but if you enter an if, the next line should be indented and only return to the original line when the end if command is entered?

    it does seem to auto-indent if i open an existing script, but if im writing a new one it just stubbornly sits at the base line unless i manually indent it.

    Hi Fergal1982,

    Try FrontPage 2003 if you want highlighting, not sure but I am sure the support is there.
