How to do variable (and function) highlighting for my own language?
Steven Van Ingelgem
In my language, I have variables which are either defined by dim or by prefixing it by @ (implicit variable definition).
I want to add this syntax highlighting to Notepad++, but I think for the dim, I’m out of luck. But I tried with @, and it’s working, but it’s highlighting the whole line (for example @Var.$id highlights everything, except what I want is everything up to the first .). How could I do this?
@JobListObject = @Node.call("Instantiate", @jblistClass.$id, $self.$id);
I want Notepad++ to highlight all of the following:
- @Node (without the .call)
- @jblistClass (without the .$id)
Is there a way to do this?
[I know if I switch to Perl language, it looks fine, but I want to define this myself so I can add specific language constructs as well as autocomplete]
You could try adding “.” as an operator.
