Transparant I18N support..

Hows this for an idea for IDEA folks...


You're editing a JSP page, select some content and extract to a
properties file for I18N, but have IDEA continue to display the
extracted content so you can still follow what your looking at.

eg.

This text should be extracted extracts to: ]]> and

some.string=This text should be extracted

However, continue to display the original, but make it read-only and
greyed out/boxed/highlighted somehow that the text is a reference.

This would allow you to quickly look at a JSP page and know the context
of what your looking at rather than "some.string" - IDEA could provide a
quick means to change the rendered locale etc.

Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?

This would be too good to be true :).
A similar feature request was already made a few years ago, but... :)

Do you know if it was entered into JIRA at all?

I don't think so. If I recall well it was 2002.

Hi,

May be done as plugin which will combine folding with properties resolving.
Since I'm too lazy already not sure that will dig deeply for it but it may be not very difficult in dirty estimation :)
