syntax highlighting for different groups of keywords [message #1766634] Fri, 23 June 2017 17:20 Go to next message

my language has several different groups of keywords; and i would like to highlight them differently in the editor....

i am able to override the keywordTextStyle() method in a class that extends DefaultHighlightingConfiguration (which i then bind appropriately).... but this simply changes the style of *all* keywords....

i've found the class HighlightingStyles, though this appears to have a fixed set of categories (KEYWORD, COMMENT, etc)

how might i do this with the framework????

thanks, bob

have a look at semantic highlighting.

- create different styles in the HighlightingConfiguration
- implement a ISemanticHighlightingCalculator that calculates the keywords.

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
