How can I get a closing tag auto completed?
When I’m using tags I want to know how to get Notepad++ to close my HTML tags for me. For example, when I use
<h1>Help Information< I would like the < to auto complete to the appropriate
</h1> closing tag.
How can I do this? Or better, how can I get
<h1> to automatically create the closing
</h1> tag such as
<h1></h1> and then I just type my headline between the two?
Settings > Preferences > Auto-Completion > Auto-Insert
Go to the above settings and select html/xml close tag. As soon as you finish typing a tag (e.g.
<h1>) it will insert the closing tag.
Please note, you need to save a new file to
*.htm extension before writing. This is the way to get the language setting HTML automatically.
