#1 CSV Highighligting Syntax

Hi Folks and Cracks...

it should be great to have a separate Syntax-highlighter for semicolon separated CSV-Files - at least to get a better look, which one is for what named field, als shown in the first line.

How can i separate each founded semicolon and is there any way to count it in the first line and to check if the following lines are the same counted semicolons?

A complete example for any CSV Syntax highlighting should be great!

Thanks in advance for reading and answers - AND YOUR TIME to do that winking smiley

Kindest regards from germany and sorry for my lousy english grinning smiley

This day I had the same question.

I just wanted to find or build a highlighter, so that i can view csv files and I were disappointed that I couldnt find corresponding info.
And I am disappointed of me, that I couldnt manage to do it myself with PSpad help files.
For my first aid I downloaded CSVed.
But If anybody in this forum knows, whether building a special highlighting filter could lead to a proper csv editing help, then I would like to know.

Michael

Hello

Look for user highlighter in the help file. Wizard is in the menu settings / user highlighter

I don't think a CSV highlighter is possible with user highlighters. There are no keywords, just values separated by comma (or some other char, like tab or pipe), so it would require something like a "column" highlighter.

If I need a good overview I open the csv file with Calc from Open Office.

In PSPad you also can use the addon "allign column". Select all with Ctrl+a. Run the addon. Type in your seperator. And you're done.
