Syntax highlighting issue

  • Anonymous - 2012-10-26


    My custom made syntax highlighting (for a proprietary language), seems to have broken.
    Well sort of broken.  The highlighting is ok, for about most of the source code files.  But then suddenly it sees everything as outcommented. (which it is not), and colors in the comment-color.

    This happened after yesterdays update (25-oct-2012).
    Also, when I add a space anywhere in the code, just before where the code is mistaken for being outcommented, then suddenly the currently is recognised as outcommented as well.  The strange thing is that when I restore that line (remove the space), the like is still highlighted as outcommented, and does not return to it's previous state.

    Is this a known issue. And / or is it tied to specific syntaxes?  Is there a workaround?

    Hi DaC,

    you need to share both your source file and your userDefineLang.xml file.
    If code is confidential, sent it on my e-mail: udlv20 __at_ googlemail __dot_ com

    Thank you and best regards,
