1.)It would be nice to implement a collapse outline feature which collapses regions of code with a quick shortcut key. For instance, if you have multiple nested begin end's it would be nice to collapse them to quickly get a visual if you are missing an end.

2.)Also would be nice to have intellisense automtaically add the end in the correct tab placement when a begin was entered.

Is there a 'collapse all' option available for the outlined code blocks somewhere?

Thanks for your feedback. The outline implementation is available in SSMS for SQL Server 2012.

Hope this has been implemented in SQL Server 2012

This feature would be most welcome. Using the work around for now.

Still not looked at?

Visual Studio had this for years. VS and SQSMS share a lot of common functionality.

Hello Exempo,

Thank you for your suggestions. Intellisense is a new feature in SQL Server SSMS 2008 and it is expected to be enhanced over multiple releases. There were multiple features/enhancements that were considered for the first release but not all could make it due to timing constraints. Your suggestions on outline shortcuts and smart identing are indeed useful to the end user and will be considered for a future release of SQL Server. Please watch out this space for updates on this bug.

I found this AddOn that implements this the same way as C# regions. It still has some issues, please support the developer
