Lexer properties

Post by tpdrjkt » Wed Jun 25, 2008 5:14 pm

Hello,

I'd like to add syntax highlighting support for another language, one similar to C/C++. I can't find any documentation regarding the named properties used in the lexer files. Is there a standard set of properties defined for the lexers?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi,

CodeLite uses the Scintilla as the underlying editing component.

I wrote a document on how to add new syntax highlight to CodeLite here:

http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/AddingNewLexer

Hope it is clear
