Format source code hotkey?

Is there a hoykey to reformat/align/indent source code for the BlackBerry JDE? Netbeans uses ctrl-shift-F, Visual Studio uses ctrl-k + ctrl-f....but I cant find it for the BB JDE. I am willing to bet it doesnt have this feature. And I may be the last one on the planet using this JDE instead of a plugin for Eclipse or Netbeans, but what the heck....I thought I would ask anyway.

Re: Format source code hotkey?

jde does not offer this feature.

i would suggest that you use your favorite IDE to edit code and the JDE to build it. makes a little bit of extra work as you have to edit the list of files in the project yourself but works.
eclipse is also ctrl+shift+f btw

If you dread the thought of two DE's, cygwin seems to have something called astyle, fwiw.

But then, I'm still sending text emails and using troff variants LOL.

Re: Format source code hotkey?

It os trerrible idea to use JDE and Eclipse together to edit and debug an app. I wish blackberry JDE team completely stop JDE development and rather create a smooth Eclipse plugin.

It is just a waste of effort for everyone involved to push for the JDE.

Re: Format source code hotkey?

the jde development IS stopped and development focused on the eclipse plugin.

 

and if using the jde to compile/simulate is such a terrible idea i wonder why many developer companies still use it
