Custom Coloring of special XML files [message #178064] Mon, 28 August 2006 19:01 Go to next message

I would like to add custom coloring of some of our XML files. My plan is to
extend the JobSafeStructuredDocument in my own Document factory for my
context type. The Document factory could then add the coloring provider to
the JobSafeStructuredDocument object (or I hope that is true).

My problem is I can't find out where and how the coloring gets applied in
the JobSafeStructuredDocument. Can someone explain where to look for this
information?

The coloring isn't done at the model level, it's hooked in using the
StructuredTextViewerConfiguration's LineStyleProviders. You can
find out how to specify your own StructuredTextViewerConfiguration
using the editor configuration extension point at
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/wst/components/sse/designs/E ditorConfiguration.html
(see also the reference doc i the SDK for
org.eclipse.wst.sse.ui.editorConfiguration). Ideally you only need
to register your XML files as your own content type and use the
extension point to point the existing editor at your own text viewer
configuration.

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I had found the LineStyleProvider
but hadn't figured out how to replace it in the
StructuredTextViewerConfiguration.
