Highlight keywords of branches (IF, THEN, ELSE...)

When I'm moving the cursor on IF, THEN, ELSE, ELSIF, END, please highlight all the other keywords of this branch.

    I apologize for the display issues in my previous attachment and note. I am seeing some display funk with IdeaScale on this post. My final sentence above that appears cut off for me says "Are you not seeing this or are you asking for something different?"

    Something in between. :)

    Sorry, I wasn't thinking of start and end already beeing highlighted, cause I was missing the highlight on THEN, ELSE, ENDIF. I'm used to that from Allround Automation PLSQL-Developer.

    So let's change this to:

    Highlight THEN, ELSE, ELSIF. :)

  3. Along similar lines... would also be nice to highlight other matching snippet components. For example, in an INSERT statement match the INTO list items with the VALUES items.

  4. I like this idea, but I'm also afraid it would annoy. If it's included PLEASE let me be able to turn it off.

  5. I would also like to see highlighting of variable names - when my cursor is inside the variable name highlight all other occurences of this variable. It's very useful for quickly finding out where this variable is used in the code. This feature is present in Allround Automations PL/SQL Developer (Christian also mentioned this tool in one of previous posts).

    In general, I think that Alrround Automations PL/SQL Developer has the best PL/SQL editor. It would be great to see the features of that editor in Toad.

    1. Toad already has practically this functionality. If you highlight (double-click on) any word in the editor it will highlight all other occurrences of that word.
