Is there any plan for code format features in the future version?
The visual studio c++ aligns the parameters in different way between function definition and other places.
Example:

int SayHello(char* firstname,
             char* lastname)
{
        printfxxxxxxxxxxxxxx("%s.%s\\n",
                firstname,
                lastname);
}

but we want to format the printfxxxxxxxxxxxxxx's parameters' alignment as the same as SayHello's

        printfxxxxxxxxxxxxxx("%s.%s\\n",
                             firstname,
                             lastname);


I think that the format features are wondful and necessary for va, don't you?

this has been discussed before, and unfortunately the answer is no. the reason is simply that if you ask 20 different programmers how code should be formatted you will get 20 different answers.

code formatting becomes a whole product on its own, overwhelmed with options, plus you end up fighting with the IDE and how it thinks code should be formatted

you may want to look into this open source code formatting program:

feline is correct.

We respectfully decline to get into the formatting business.
