    tweaking MSVC

    Anybody know how to do custom syntax highlighting in MSVC 6 (professional if that helps)? I've typdef'd some stuff and i want the new keywords to get highlighted like a normal variable type would. Does anyone know how to do this? thanks.



    note: wasn't sure if this was for the tech boards or not so i just stuck it here

    GOTO TOOLS->Options....

    goto FORMAT TAB and select category Source Windows, it should be the last entry in that category called "user defined keywords"

    And how would you go about defining your own keyword?

    i realize i shouldn't have used the term keyword

    if i did this
    typedef const double exercise;
    i want exercise to be blue when i use it later...i looked into what 1stiff said and it was already set to blue, so it must have been something else. thanks though.
