Title: Keyword Sets
Post by: cybergray on December 05, 2021, 08:40:50 am
Hello, i will need Keyword Set 8 for coloring special words in C++
with other color then for example "Keywords" Set1 or "User Keywords"
Set 2. The other Sets (3-7) seem to have special purposes. How can this
be done, when no entry for Keyword Set 8 is available (e.g. for user keyword
Set 2 there is an entry, here you can choose the color simply over the given
Syntax coloring panel entry "User Keywords"). Thanks in forward for any
help and kind regards!

If i understand you correctly, you want to color the Set Number 8?

Sadly this seems not to be possible over the UI. Can you please report this as a bug on Sourceforge?
I looked a bit into the code, but was not able to determine how coloring works exactly.

I found out, that scintilla has 255 styles, and for example style 0 ist the default background color.
Codeblocks overrides this styles in the configuration file with the xml path: editor/colour_sets and then in the tags <styleX> where X is the style number.
I was not able to find out, what style number the keyword set 8 has...
What i found out is, that, when the keyword is in the middle of a comment section of the code, than the styleX+64 is applied. For example numbers have the style nr 4, if they are in a comment section they have the style 4+64=68

maybe some other dev can help you...

Hello BlueHazzard,

first thanks to you for all your friendly efforts. For myself i tried a little bit in the default.conf maybe to find out the <styleX> for the Set8 about "manually trial and error" with the xml-sequence (hopefully in the right section):

         <colour r="128" g="128" b="64" />

, but until now with no success X between 47 and 128 (sorry must correct it.) It's about to kill me softly ;D Maybe you know a dev who has another ingenious idea but i have not much hope therefore. Nevertheless thank you very much again and have a nice day (without solving overwhelming problems). *cybergray*
