Greetings Fellow VB Programmers,
I would like to know to Indent Code ( HTML ).
To turn HTML code like this...
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE></HEAD></HTML>
to this...
<HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE></TITLE>
    </HEAD>
</HTML>
Just a basic Function would be fine.
Just show me how and I will insert the other HTML elements
myself.

Note, that your answer MUST me a function in which I
pass the RichTextBox.Text. Also,
please be kind enough to include comments on how
to add new HTML elements and the tab setting.


Thank you.

Here is a code indent function I've written for you.

'example call
Private Sub Command1_Click()

    richtextbox2.Text = indent(RichTextBox1.Text)
   
End Sub


Function indent(ByVal sCode As String) As String

    Dim sCommand As String
   
    Dim iPos As Long
    Dim iLen As Long
    Dim iIndent As Long
    Dim bLine As Boolean
   
   
    iLen = Len(sCode)
    iPos = 1
   
    While iPos <= iLen
   
       
       
        If Mid(sCode, iPos, 1) = "<" Then
       
            sCommand = Mid(sCode, iPos, 1)
            iPos = iPos + 1
           
            While Mid(sCode, iPos, 1) <> ">" And iPos <= iLen
           
                sCommand = sCommand & Mid(sCode, iPos, 1)
                iPos = iPos + 1
               
            Wend
            sCommand = UCase(sCommand) & Mid(sCode, iPos, 1)
           
'USE THE OR COMMAND TO EXPAND YOUR LISTS
            If sCommand = "</HTML>" Then 'EXPAND YOUR LIST OF COMMANDS TO CLOSE AN INDENT HERE
           
                iIndent = iIndent - 3  'TAB SPACE = 3 per INDENT HERE
               
            End If
           
            If bLine Then
               
                indent = indent + vbCrLf
               
            End If
           
            indent = indent & String(iIndent, " ") & sCommand
            bLine = True
           
            If sCommand = "<HTML>" Then 'EXPAND YOUR LIST OF COMMANDS TO OPEN AN INDENT HERE
           
                iIndent = iIndent + 3
               
            End If
           
            If iIndent < 0 Then iIndent = 0
           
        Else
       
            indent = indent & Mid(sCode, iPos, 1)
            bLine = True
         
        End If
       
        iPos = iPos + 1
       
    Wend
           
End Function
