EditorActionManager is not getting hit in between auto-closed parantheses Follow
In my plugin I've registered an action handler to do something when the tab key is hit:
This works well in most circumstances, but I noticed that if my caret is between two auto-closed characters (like quotes, parentheses, or braces), hitting tab simply moves my caret past the closed character and doesn't ever hit my action handler.
For example, suppose I type (where | represents my caret / cursor)
x = (|
My IDE automatically inserts a closing parenthesis:
x = (|)
Now when I hit tab, the caret is moved to the right of the parenthesis:
x = ()|
but my action handler is never called. Any idea why?

I guess I handled this by also registering an action handler for ACTION_BRACE_OR_QUOTE_OUT
Could you please clarify the last message? Did you solve the problem? If so, how did you do it with ACTION_BRACE_OR_QUOTE_OUT?
I did solve the problem. I now have two action handlers, one that responds to ACTION_EDITOR_TAB and one that responds to ACTION_BRACE_OR_QUOTE_OUT.
The EditorActionTabOutHandler looks like this:
So now when a user hits Tab in a situation where it would normally invoke the ACTION_BRACE_OR_QUOTE_OUT handler, it hits this handler instead which checks if my plugin should handle the tab. If it shouldn't, it lets the Tab Out action happen. Hopefully that makes sense.
