Simple question that I can't find in the help.

How can I set my code line length to 80 chars/columns. I need to know so I can wrap the code. Just a line down the right side of my code at 80 chars would do.

I don't think that is possible in the development environment.
If you are talking about an edit control on your app you will need to have it as owner drawn and process each line yourself.

Does not being able to do what the questioner asked mean that a comment informing him so is not an answer?

Good question!

But it would still be possible to do this - it would just mean re-writing Visual studio and adding the functionality. LOL :)
