Format SQL: Ability to turn off "begin" indent

I don't like to indent my "begins" in procs, while's, if's, etc and need to be able to turn this off.

Ex: I prefer
if @x < 1
    set @x=1
if @x < 1
        set @x=1

I've seen some references to an XML file where that can be tweaked, but I need to set it directly in a style file that can be shared across the DBA team.



  • Options
    The option is not currently in UI but you can modify it in:

    c:\Users\<your login>\AppData\Local\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 5\RedGate_SqlPrompt_Format_Layout_LayoutOptions.xml

    Change element IndentBeginToken:


    This equivalent setting is also also in the style file so you can modify the style file and share the style file with other members of your team.
