Plug-In or patch updates in ACE toolkits to enable better viewing such as expand capability of ESQL conditions

- Similar to Java compute node, where one can expand the code at function level; compute node must be equipped with similar capabilities to view the code in a better manner.

- Users (developers) must be able to expand and minimize the code at procedure level

- Developers must be able to expand and minimize Loops and other conditions.

For example:  Use Notepad++ with XML plugin enabled. we can play around with XML. That sort of functionality in ESQL viewing would be AMAZING!!

and you can send me email when it's implemented and I'll be happy to use it as part of pre-release testing.

    Since there is no demand for this feature (this is the only one) and we haven't implemented this for other sensors we don't have plan to implement it in the foreseeable future.
