How to save syntax highlighting ?
« on: November 14, 2010, 12:28:02 am »
Hi,


I use .h files in an assembly project. Headers files are automatically colourized as C++ header files. I can colourize them as asm files by using Edit->Highlight mode->Assembly 68000 (I binded that to do it more quickly).

But is there a way to have these files of this project colourized permanently ?

If not, could the coloration be added in the .cbp file to remember that ?

Could you try change the ".h" to ".inc"?

Of course, it would work, but I can't rename the files of all guys of the TI-68k communauty beacause I use C::B ^^

Yea, but I don't understand your meaning. Is it that you want to delete the ".h" highlight in the C/C++ highlight, or you want to take ".h" highlight in C/C++ and asm highlight all effective?

I would want that CB remember that it must apply asm highlight to the .h files of this project (and keep C/C++ highlight for files outside this project).

I have no idea to solve it, and Scintilla can autodetect highlight when opening some files. I don't know how to disable its autodetect.

Saving an info in the .cbp file could probably do that. But I don't know anything in XML format ^^

It would be nice if Code::Blocks developers team could add some functionality to save syntax highlight to XML files that the user can load later if there is another installation (for example at work) where the user needs to work with.
