I couldn't find it either but here's an implementation. I've added this
to our scripts/editor_extensions.py examples so it won't get lost again.
You can bind a key to use it to one of the following:
The first one uses the defined tab size for the file (depends on preferences
and in some cases file content). The second one would be how you set a fixed
column for comments.
The script is:
"""Insert spaces to reach the next tab stop (units of given tab size
or editor's tab size if none is given)"""
ed = wingapi.gApplication.GetActiveEditor()
if ed is None:
doc = ed.GetDocument()
if tab_size == 0:
tab_size = ed.GetTabSize()
start, end = ed.GetSelection()
lineno = doc.GetLineNumberFromPosition(start)
line_start = doc.GetLineStart(lineno)
offset = start - line_start
remainder = offset % tab_size
insert = ' ' * (tab_size - remainder)
if start != end:
doc.InsertChars(start, ' ' * (tab_size - remainder))
ed.SetSelection(start + (tab_size - remainder), start + (tab_size - remainder))
Hope that helps.
