Hello - What are some techniques you use for code folding in SSMS? For example, in Visual Studio you can add regions like this:
#region Protected Methods
//some code here
Then a developer can use the context menu in VS to auto-expand and auto-collapse all regions on the page.
For example, a new developer can choose to auto-collapse all regions of a class in order to understand the high-level structure of the class. I'm not aware of a similar way to do this in SSMS but I'm not a full-time SQL developer.
I've read that SSMS Tool Pack provides code folding capabilities. I used SSMS Tool Pack on a previous project and I liked it a lot. Unfortunately, it's no longer free
So do you know if code folding is available in SSMS through a free external plugin or maybe in the latest or upcoming version? I'm currently using SS2008 R2....
