Code editor here in the javascript forums should have javascript as language preselected

  • Hi Phil,

    I do not understand.  The Forums do not have a code editor!  Can you expand you idea for me?

  • Its not an editor, you are right.:)

    When I reply to you I see a small icon beside the "html" one, that says "insert code block". When I open that to paste in some code, I always have to select "javascript" manually, although it should already know that I am not going to post c# code. Maybe one could introduce a little tag for each forum that deals with programming languages and then the "editor" could select a reasonable default.

  • Sheesh!  I did not even see that :-)

    I don't think the editor is forum specific and just a generic editor for all our forums but I will suggest it!

  • Thanks! I bet the other users in the other forums would appreciate such little things. After all, MS has put many thoughts into the Win8 Metro UX, and this little touch could me the old msnd forums a little more user/developer friendly. Thanks for forwarding the feature request.
