  • Hi,

    I'm not sure if I can understand what you want to do.
    A batch file is a simple text file.  How about open Notepad.exe (or some text editor) and open a batch file in it?

  • What he means by this is:

    This is how Visual Studio 2019 shows a batch file. Notice how commands are blue, comments are green, strings are the red/brown colour and if/for blocks are collapsible? 

    This is a signature. Any samples given are not meant to have error checking or show best practices. They are meant to just illustrate a point. I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.

  • I mean that I need a outline view for bat file in Visual Studio Code. Usually the outline view is a structured variables and functions list of bat file in code editor The outline view is a view that can be opened by windows or view menu.
