    Hello! I recently use your extension for visual studio code, I really like it. But I noticed one bug, with several document formatting, indentation after #if, #endif and so on.
    Also, the formatting inside the structures leads to alignment with the variables, I would like to see

    #if defined(_RENDERING_CUTOUT)
    clip(alpha - _AlphaCutoff);
    #endif

    but not

    #if defined (_RENDERING_CUTOUT)
    clip (alpha - _AlphaCutoff);
    #endif

    Thank you for the wonderful extension!

    PS. Sorry for my bad English.

    Asset Store claims there was an update to 1.1.4 but I can't seem to import anything above 1.1.2?

    I'm not sure what happen to Asset Store. Did you try to delete the local copy of ShaderlabVSCode and download from Asset Store again?

    @Amlovey ,
    Before I buy the asset, I've got a few questions about it:

    1. Does it inspect included files? I.e., will it suggest functions for autocompletion if I have those declared in an external ".cginc" / ".hlsl" file which is included:
    a) from the same folder, with
    Code (CSharp):
    1. #include "file.hlsl"
    b) from any other folder, with
    Code (CSharp):
    1. #include "Assets/path/to/file.hlsl"
    2. #include "Packages/path/to/shader/library.hlsl"
    2. Does this plugin support new SRP-style shaders (for URP/HDRP)?
    I.e., detecting included files from packages (as in example above), parsing HLSLPROGRAM block, support for texture samplers declaration, pass names/tags suggestion ("LightMode"="UniversalForward"), etc.

    3. Is it possible to customize code style? Specifically, tabs instead of spaces (for indents), brackets positioning (end of line / new line - for structs/funcs/pass blocks).

    Hi

    Thank you for your post.

    For #1, it works for same folder and relative path base on the shader file folder.
    For #2, Not support for now. But I can add it for later release.
    For #3, Not full support now. No brackets positioning options..but have indents feature which base on VSCode Settings.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately, 1.b (including files by the full path based on the project root, not relatively to the shader) and 2 (SRP support, at least for HLSL part) are two things that I absolutely need.

    The plugin itself looks great. Would love to see the updated version with these 2 features added.

    Thank you for the great extension!

    I would appreciate it if you could fix the code format issue.

    Before format:

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. float test()
    3. {
    4.     if (1 == 1)
    5.     {
    6.         float a = 1;
    7.     }
    8.  
    9.     if (2 == 2)
    10.     {
    11.         float b = 2;
    12.     }
    13.  
    14.     return 0;
    15. }
    16.  
    After format: The white space after the second if statement disappears.

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. float test()
    3. {
    4.     if (1 == 1)
    5.     {
    6.         float a = 1;
    7.     }
    8.  
    9.     if(2 == 2)
    10.     {
    11.         float b = 2;
    12.     }
    13.  
    14.     return 0;
    15. }
    16.

    This issue was fixed in 1.2.2! Thank you for the fix!

    I found another new issue with the format.

    Before format:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. float test()
    2. {
    3.     for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    4.     {
    5.         // do something
    6.     }
    7.  
    8.     return 0;
    9. }
    After format: A space is inserted before ++.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. float test()
    2. {
    3.     for (int i = 0; i < 10; i ++)
    4.     {
    5.         // do something
    6.     }
    7.  
    8.     return 0;
    9. }

    Thanks for the great plugin.
    I don't want to put a line break before the curly brackets "{".
    I want to set whether or not to start a new line.

    I think I can add a setting item to config whether start a new line or not. I will add it in next release.

    Version 1.2.4 will be submitted to Asset Store in next few days. Two main improvements in new release

    1. `Go To Definition` works for methods/variables/structs



    2. Hover information support variable type information

    Hi amlovey,

    I recently bought the asset and already love the autocompletion <3
    However I noticed one thing I would very kindly ask for you to consider as another fix / feature

    Pass tags get autoformatted into one line even if they are placed into multiple ones. This is not particularly inconvenient but it is inconsistent with Subshader tags which remain on separate lines if they have been placed like that. Having another option to configure this or just keep current style would be nice :)

    this:
    Screenshot 2021-06-30 110702.jpg

    becomes this:
    Screenshot 2021-06-30 110716.jpg

    I noticed this because I had a pass tag that was commented out in the first line and this resulted in all tags being commented out including the closing bracket.
    Code (CSharp):
    1. Tags { // "LightMode" = "Always" }

    Hi @Amlovey ,

    I saw your update added my requested feature which was the ability to indent Instancing buffer start/ends. First of all, thanks! However, it seems it only accounts for the obsolete version of the macro name. Thankfully, the way you implemented the feature to the extension makes it easy to fix. Adding
    UNITY_INSTANCING_BUFFER_START: 'UNITY_INSTANCING_BUFFER_END',
    to
    MACRO_METHODS_PAIR
    in the Formatter module fixes it.

    Thanks again! Got 5 stars from me!

    I am a bit confused by the two version on the Asset store. What is the difference ShaderLabVS Pro and ShaderLabVSCode? I am looking for a tool to help me write shaders directly in HLSL and provide the functionality that comes along with C# in Visual Studio.

    Thanks! Glad to made this. Editing HLSL is such a disaster without any code completion.

    Oh wow, thanks for clarifying. For some reason I thought Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio was the same thing. Thanks so much! That clarifies it all.

    I installed the extension again today on a new machine and noticed that block comments get indented every time I press shift + alt + f
    Is there a setting to change this or is this a fixable bug?
