I offer to use simple BeanShell script like this:

// Insert_double_quote.bsh

buffer_mode = buffer.getMode().toString();
if (buffer_mode.equals("php")) {
   textArea.setSelectedText("\"\"");
   textArea.goToPrevCharacter(false);
} else {
   textArea.setSelectedText("\"");
}

And set the shortcut via: Global Options->Shortcuts->Macros->Insert double quote. E.g. SHIFT+".

Etc. Eye-wink

Scalex, thanks for posting the great auto-quote script. I've modified it to also auto insert the semi colon when I'm coding in Java:
//auto_semicolon.bsh
buffer_mode = buffer.getMode().toString();
if (buffer_mode.equals("java")) {
textArea.goToEndOfWhiteSpace(false);
textArea.setSelectedText(";");
textArea.goToPrevCharacter(false);
}else{
textArea.setSelectedText(";");
}

simple shortcut reassignment in the Jedit options and now my semicolon is placed at the end of the line wherever I am when I type it.
 
awww yeah!

I've been using eclipse for some java dev recently and really liked that functionality .. never even thought to make a beanshell for jedit to do the same ... sweet!

Gonna make one for () and [] now as well .. thanks again, that's a gem right there.

thank you very much. but can it be done automaticly without using special shortcut?
all other editors i used can do that. jedit is great, but this feature is really missing me

Such feature is absent (not embed as default) because jEdit NOT ONLY PHP EDITOR. jEdit is editor of any text and all specific language actions is realizes by macros, plugins or abbreviations.
And it is quite reasonable! Smiling

I disagree

IMHO it isn't really reasonable
I use "auto-completion" in PHP, (X)HTML, CSS, etc.
Each good editor has option to turn on/off this, except jEdit. Its huge flaw of jEdit, that doesn't support this feature.
 
Hmmm

Are you think what jEdit not good editor?

Hardly this may be "huge flaw"...

And why above beanshell script don't suit your?
