15.4 Vertical Alignment

When enabled, this option performs vertical alignment.

  • Vertical Alignment Tokens (DVT.textEditor.vHDL.formatting.verticalAlignment.verticalAlignTokens)

The lines of code inside the same scope are aligned by the specified list of vertical alignment tokens. Vertical alignment is performed left to right, by the same token. For example, assuming '=' and ':' as vertical alignment tokens: In order to use the comma character ',' as a vertical alignment token, the character must be preceded by the escaping character '\'.
