View Full Version : Post your IDE scheme!

I just can't settle on a highlighting scheme for Visual Studio.

Post a screenshot of your IDE and syntax scheme for the world to see! Maybe it'll give me some ideas...

Here is what I've managed to get so far. Keywords are blue, types are orange, strings are maroon, comments are green and XML comments are grey (this is C# using Visual Studio .NET 2005 Beta 2):

And im still figuring out how they process this colour coding thing, through XML with colorvalues on keywords is what im trying right now, so i can set up my own IDE for the feature....

I've done it with XML for definitions and regular expressions for parsing. Not the fastest method but it works.

Whats really hard is code completion (or intellisense). Parsing the entire file (plus any other files in scope, plus any included files) can be a nightmare. Its little wonder why so little editors support it, and even third party controls can't do it properly.
