ASP Syntax Highlighting Bug

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I just upgraded Notepad++. The latest version, unlike the older version I was using, has an ASP has a syntax highlighting bug concerning comments on the same line as an ending asp tag, such as: <%'Comment%>. The editor will treat the document like the ending asp tag was never there.

      This is likely a bug in the Scintilla editor component (separate project which handles all of the language syntax highlighting), so you should post the issue over there.

      Ditto.  This is still broken as of version 4.8.2.

        As anyone discovered a workaround for this bug? It is driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I just installed 5.0.2 to try it out and unfortunately this single bug will prevent me from using the editor. Too bad because otherwise it looks great.

      Is there a plan to fix this?

      This bug has been recorded and is still present as of version 5.1:

      I will be a very happy camper when this gets fixed!
