Support "not" for in and instanceof

    Details

    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.5.6, 1.6-beta-1
    • Fix Version/s: 2.6.0-alpha-1

      Description

      It would be nice if we could use:

      • (3 Unable to render embedded object: File (in [2,3,4]) or (3 not in [2,3,4]) instead of () not found.(3 in [2,3,4]))
      • also for instanceof

      Remarks:

      • It doesn't look like a big issue if it's just "!(x in ['x'])", but when the line is longer and more complex and when use together with other parenthesis, skipping one pair of parenthesis means a lot in code clarity. It's just like in SQL, we can add a NOT to NOT LIKE or NOT IN.
