I want to hide the number column set nonumber norealtivenumber in Tlist window! Every time I call :Tlist the number column appears in the window. How can I disable the number column for that window.

enter image description here


You can specify specific commands for some file as the following:

autocmd BufEnter filename/pattern   set commands

I my case I have to explicitly hide the number column for the Tag List window:

autocmd BufEnter __Tag_List__   set nonumber norelativenumber

    Remember to put your autocommand in an augroup as explained in :h autocmd-once (And remember to accept your answer to show future readers that your question has an answer) – statox Jul 10 '19 at 11:49
  • I'll check the :h autocmd-once, I have to wait 14 hours before I can accept my answer. – Taha Magdy Jul 10 '19 at 14:08

If :Tlist comes from the taglist plugin, from the docs, I can see :

To not display the Vim fold column in the taglist window, set the 'Tlist_Enable_Fold_Column' variable to zero.

So in your .vimrc, do

let Tlist_Enable_Fold_Column=0

Note that this column helps you see how the folds are applied. You can toggle folds with za. For more infos about folds, see :help folds or :h zo to see fold mappings.

I would recommend you try a fuzzy finder plugin such as CtrlP or CommandT. With both, you can - in addition to search files, buffers, etc... - search in tags. With CtrlP, you can use :CtrlPBufTagAll to toggle the search, fuzzy find whatever you want, and jump to it.

    Meh, plugins for tags is overkill. Vim is built to work with tags quite well. For fuzzy-file finding? Sure. – D. Ben Knoble Jul 10 '19 at 3:43

    I don't mean the fold column, I mean the numbers column. – Taha Magdy Jul 10 '19 at 6:55

    Indeed... did you try autocmd FileType taglist set nonumber norelativenumber ? – perelo Jul 10 '19 at 9:01
  • This works for me autocmd BufEnter __Tag_List__ set nonumber norelativenumber. The buffer title's name is __Tag_List__ – Taha Magdy Jul 10 '19 at 10:13
