#1 adding 3 KeyWord sections and 1 Variable section

Posted by: Professor Bernd | Date: 2020-02-20 21:52 | IP: IP Logged

Hello Jan.

For AutoIt3 highlighter

Could you add 3 more Key Words sections and a section for variables?

Variables are easy to recognize: they start with a "$" sign. Example: $sLine

Would it be possible to add 3 log parsers, each with its own color? That would be very friendly. smiling smiley
Thank you very much.

Best regards,
Bernd.

Please note that PSPad general highlighter isn't for Autoit only.
Adding 3 another keywords sections will slow down highlighting.
Remove Value section will have influences of another languages.

I will try to find a way how to highlight variables without influence of anything else.

Adding another log parsers is planned. Do you really needs another 3 log parsers?
Please note, that if any logparser fits to content, PSpad will consider the line as "error" and jump there after compilation.

Added variable attribute with new option in User highlighter definition 'PHP style variable'

You will need to check it in user highlighter definition and remove '$' from autoit keyword chars

Thanks for responding so quickly.

I didn't think it would be so difficult. Please excuse me.

Log parser

One additional log parser with its own color is fine. winking smiley

The reason for a second LogParser is to highlight "Debug" messages with a different color than "Error" messages. If PSpad considers the line as "error" and jumps there after compilation, then a debug line should not look as "bad" as an error line.

Now I understand the problem, because then I also need a second function for highlighting with a different color via VBScript. yawning smiley

Example: markEditorLineA(integer)

Okay, one step at a time. smiling smiley What do you think is possible?

General Highlighter

Now I understand! I hadn't considered that this would affect all general highlighters. sad smiley

pspad:

It is not necessary to remove the Value section because it has no effect on the AutoIt3 highlighter. (I had forgotten the influence on other languages.)

Then it must be enough if variables get their own color. tongue sticking out smiley

Can you tell me more details about this? When I remove '$' from autoit keyword characters, then double-clicking on a variable in the AutoIt3 script will no longer select the variable completely. yawning smiley

The new PSPad version is available and contains 'PHP style variable' in the user highlighter.

To make the highlighting work I have to remove '$' from the autoit keyword chars. Also the '_' must be removed, otherwise you will get a broken highlighting (see screenshot).

But I cannot remove '$' and '_' from the autoit keyword char. This would prevent variable detection in all functions that use the %Word% variable, e.g. the Language Help and some of my VBScripts. Another example is when I double-click a varialbe, it is not completely marked for copying, deleting, etc.

Unfortunately I don't know a solution at the moment, but this is NOT an important feature, and you can put it on the 'Todo later' list. grinning smiley

Thank you very much for your hard work! smiling smiley

Bernd.
