When enabled, this option performs vertical alignment.
The lines of code inside the same scope are aligned by the specified list of vertical alignment tokens.
if(a) begin if(a) begin
Vertical alignment is performed left to right, by the same token. For example assuming '=' and ':' as vertical align tokens:
var x : int = 1; // "first level :", "second level ="
a = 1; // not aligned to "second level =" above, as this is a "first level ="
In order to use the comma character ',' as a vertical alignment token, the character must be preceded by the escaping character '\'.
