Does anyone know how to customize the scite output color scheme?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm working on a simple script that generates some data I visualize on the Scite console. For ease I prefix output with the "!", "+", "-", ">" such that I can find exceptions at a glance. I have seen that whenever I use @tab to tabulate data the output appears in pink, and occasionally, on some unknown circumstances (to me) the output is brown. I looked at the scite help file to see if I could customize text color directives for the console, but I got lost in the lua docs.

I wrote the following script which displays colored lines for the standard chrs ("!", "+", "-", ">" ) in the hope I will discover an additional one.

Local $lsFormat = "%-10s %-10s "
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat($lsFormat, "CHR", "ASC") & @CRLF)
For $i=32 To 127 Step 1
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat($lsFormat, Chr($i), $i) & @CRLF)
Next

I'd appreciate it if anyone can shed some light on this mystery.

Ivan

ivan,

As far as I know these are the only coloured SciTE console lines: :)

ConsoleWrite('! = Bold Red' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('> = Blue' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('- = Orange' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('+ = Green' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('(5) : = Red (jump to line 5 when double-clicked)' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('Start with String or Integer then ' & @TAB & '6' & ' = Pink (jump to line 6 when double-clicked)' & @LF)


ConsoleWrite('(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : = Red (jump to line ' & @ScriptLineNumber & ' when double-clicked)' & @CRLF)

As Melbe23 mentions but a little bit more info on the specials that also facilitate jumping to a line when double clicked:

ConsoleWrite('! = Red' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('> = Blue' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('- = Orange' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('+ = Green' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('(5) : = Red (jump to line 5 when double-clicked)' & @LF)
ConsoleWrite('Start with String or Integer then ' & @TAB & @ScriptLineNumber & ' = Pink (jump to line ' & @ScriptLineNumber & ' when double-clicked)' & @LF)

;// SciTE Output logic will look for one of the following formats:
;// GCC: <filename>:<line>:<message>
;// Microsoft: <filename>(<line>) :<message>
;// Common: <filename>(<line>): warning|error|note|remark|catastrophic|fatal
;// Common: <filename>(<line>) warning|error|note|remark|catastrophic|fatal
;// Microsoft: <filename>(<line>,<column>)<message>
;// CTags: \t<message>
;// Lua 5 traceback: \t<filename>:<line>:<message>
;// Lua 5.1: <exe>: <filename>:<line>:<message>
ConsoleWrite('(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : = Red (jump to line ' & @ScriptLineNumber & ' when double-clicked)' & @CRLF)

So, how did you get brown?

Jos,

I get a "Bold Red" with a leading "!" and the "Jump to" lines come out a very brownish red on my display - I assumed that was what was happening. :)

I see them as red. Must be something on your side.

Edit: If you hold ctrl+ scroll your mouse wheel up (to zoom in) is it still brown? :)

AdmiralAlkex,

No, it is the same red when you expand the characters. It just looks browner on my display on the thin normal font compared to the fat bold red font given by the !. :)

Jos,

I have heard that a few times as well! ;)

jos ;)

Thx everyone, I mean it.

Sorry for not getting back, I had to leave for a couple of hours.

Honestly, I don't have the faintest clue, this was ages ago and I could have sworn I got brown, but from your specs, it just looks impossible. I don't smoke pot, so to answer your questions, there's only 2 possibilities:

1.- Long hours of work made me allucinate

2.- I'm as blind as a bat and I badly need some glasses.

:)

Again, thank you all.

@Melba23:

And just when I thought I knew most functionalities of Scite4Autoit:

ConsoleWrite('(5) : = Red (jump to line 5 when double-clicked)' & @LF)

I never used it before, but I'm sure I'll be using it soon.

Thx,

IVAN

I found one more! :)

Any line that ends with :number: will be purple and navigate to that line number when clicked on. While looking for this original post I found another by @mLipok that expands more upon this that I will add to:

; colors In SciTE are definied in   others.properties   for example like this: style.errorlist.3=fore:#FF000

ConsoleWrite('Default text' & @CRLF) ; black text color             => style.errorlist.0
ConsoleWrite('! = Red' & @CRLF)      ; ! = red bold text color      => style.errorlist.10
ConsoleWrite('> = Blue' & @CRLF)     ; > = blue text color          => style.errorlist.4
ConsoleWrite('< = Orange' & @CRLF)   ; < = orange bold text color   => style.errorlist.12
ConsoleWrite('- = Orange' & @CRLF)   ; - = orange bold text color   => style.errorlist.12
ConsoleWrite('--- = Brown' & @CRLF)  ; --- = brown text color       => style.errorlist.13
ConsoleWrite('+ = Green' & @CRLF)    ; + = green text color         => style.errorlist.11
ConsoleWrite('+++ = Brown' & @CRLF)  ; +++ = brown text color       => style.errorlist.13

; Red text color (when double-clicked jump to specified line in specified script file) => style.errorlist.3
; ConsoleWrite('FileFullPath' ( #ScriptLineNumber ) : 'AnyDescription=CallTipToPopUp')
ConsoleWrite(@ScriptFullPath & '(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : Description=CallTip to PopUp' & @CRLF)

; Red text color (when double-clicked jump to specified line in specified script file) => style.errorlist.3
; ConsoleWrite('Description' & ' in ' & 'FileFullPathOrFileName' & ' ( #ScriptLineNumber ) : ' & 'AnyDescription=CallTipToPopUp')
ConsoleWrite('IMPORTANT TODO in ASin.au3 on line 5 SOME Description' & @CRLF)

; Pink text color (when double-clicked jump to specified line in specified script file) => style.errorlist.9
; ConsoleWrite('Description_WithOut_Space' & @TAB & 'FileFullPathOrFileName' & @TAB & #ScriptLineNumber & 'Any other Descripion')
ConsoleWrite('DescripionForPink' & @TAB & 'ACos.au3' &  @TAB & '10' & ' = SOME Description for Pink text color' & @CRLF)

; Violet+Black text color (when double-clicked jump to specified line in specified script file) => style.errorlist.8
; ConsoleWrite(@TAB & 'FileFullPathOrFileName' & @TAB & #ScriptLineNumber & 'Any other Descripion')
ConsoleWrite(@TAB & 'ATan.au3' &  ':10:' & ' SOME Description for Violet+Black text color' & @CRLF)

; Chocolate text color => style.errorlist.5
; ConsoleWrite('Warning' & ' ' & 'Any kind of description')
ConsoleWrite('Warning ' & 'Some description for Chocolate text color' & @CRLF)

; Chocolate text color => style.errorlist.5
; ConsoleWrite('Error' & ' ' & 'Any kind of description')
ConsoleWrite('Error ' & 'Some description for Chocolate text color' & @CRLF)

; not jet checked
ConsoleWrite('In file included from SOME Description' & @CRLF) ; to check
ConsoleWrite('line 10 column 20' & @CRLF) ; to check

;Purple for trailing operator :#:
ConsoleWrite('Purple for any line ending with ":number:". Add as much space to the end as you want.                   :' & @ScriptLineNumber & ':' & @CRLF)

; Clear console output pane of SciTE after 5000 ms
Sleep(5000)
;~ ControlSend("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]", "", "Scintilla2", "+{F5}")

Edit: Actually looking closely, Mlipok already showed this with violet+black ex. Only thing I'm really showing is it does not require trailing text to add the purple color (unlike most others that are very specific)

That is part of the output lexer where it is checking for all kinds of error/warnings of the different known compilers, check out LexErrorList.cxx for all possibilities.  ;)
