Please support M-l, M-u:

  • M-l
    • Convert following word to lower case (downcase-word).
  • M-u
    • Convert following word to upper case (upcase-word).

I will simply assign M-l and M-u to editor.action.transformToLowercase and editor.action.transformToUppercase respectively, to which C-x C-l and C-x C-u are now assigned.

Strictly speaking, this is different from the original behavior of Emacs, on which M-l and M-u work on a different manner from C-x C-l and C-x C-u.
However, on VSCode, editor.action.transformToLowercase and editor.action.transformToUppercase work very similarly to both commands according to selection state:

  • If some regions are selected, editor.action.transformTo(Lower|Upper)case converts the region.
  • If no regions are selected, editor.action.transformTo(Lower|Upper)case converts the word next to the cursor.

I think this is more convenient than to set keybindings to emulate the original Emacs' behavior strictly.

Assigning M-l and M-l to editor.action.transformToLowercase and editor.action.transformToUppercase is good work.

But I think, what is important for M-u and M-l is that they move cursor in additon to upcase (or downcase) word. For example, I can upcase all words of "awesome emacs keymap" only by typing M-u M-u M-u.

If M-u and M-l executed the following command sequences, they would be more resemble to the original Emacs, I think.

  1. emacs-mcx.cursorWordRight
  2. editor.action.transformTo(Lower|Upper)case
