How to pretty print a dynamic array

Pharo Smalltalk Users mailing list
Hi guys,
I have a dynamic array that the formatter put on a column like this:
{self meth1.
self meth2.
self meth3}

instead I want it in a single row, like this:
{self meth1. self meth2. self meth3}

But I can't find any settings to pretty print in the last way.
Can you help me, please?


Davide

Hi Davide,

I'm not sure I can be much help since I never use the pretty printer and I'm not familiar with the system.
There may be a setting for that, but if not and I wanted to find out about how to do it 
I'd take the shotgun approach....  

In System > Settings, search for "pretty" and the with some setting related to newLines,
some line "New line After Cascade"
then "Browse" it, then in the body of the method find that text again 
and look for senders attached selector.

That brought me to " BIConfigurableFormatter >> visitCascadeNode: "
and browsing that method in the System Browser shows a bundle of other "visitXXX" methods.
Drop a "self haltOnce" in an interesting one and try to trigger when you pretty print.
Trace through a few times to learn how it does its stuff, and see if you can change it to do what you want.

Re: How to pretty print a dynamic array

Peter Uhnák
{self meth1. self meth2. self meth3}

This is not possible in a reasonably general way. Usually I end up writing it like `Array with: self meth1 with: self meth2 with: self meth3`

Yep, Peter, that's an other option.
Thanks
