    I currently use CodeRush express I really like the way blocks of code have coloured vertical lines making it easy to identify where blocks of code start and end. Are there any plans to include this functionality in this product?

    Thanks

    Martin.

    Hi Martin,

    We would really like to keep the UI distractions introduced by JustCode to a minimum but of course should more developers request this features we'll reconsider this and probably put it in our backlog. Of course we could always make it optional so that we make both parties happy.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Kind regards,

    Hi Martin,

    Code highlighting is sometimes rather nice to have - sometimes not so nice :)

    Maybe the ability to turn it off/on would meet the requirements in both camps? I know i use it, however i prefer not to highlight my code with background colours, but with the ReSharper feature that will "box" it for me instead, that way i can easily see where a statement starts and where it ends - especially nice when i'm reviewing somebody else's code.

    +1 for this feature for sure..

    Cheers,

    +1 for me too, small and not totally needed, but I like it for large methods

    Thank you telerik,  
    For supporting the user's request.
    Now we get the vertical visual features was supported on current Q3 released..!

    But It Should be available for VS 2008 at lease, instead of only VS2010.
    We could get easily for extension in vs2010.

    Hi VIRUX,

     Thanks for the feedback. We try our best to deliver all of our features for all supported version of Visual Studio. This is actually the first and only feature supported only in Visual Studio 2010. The reason we chose to go this way is that the new extensibility model that VS 2010 allowed us to implement it much quicker. Also the number of people using the new Visual Studio is quite large and continues to grow. 

     It is true that there are free VS extensions that expose similar functionality. However, we believe that our Structural Highlighting functionality is richer and allows you better configuration abilities.

    Sincerely yours,
