SciTE highlight.current.word

Recommended Posts

I'm using SciTE version 1.79 from the bundle of the current 3.3.6.1 release version of AutoIt.

The only other thread I could find that even mentions current word highlighting is I have Valik's quoted code in my user config file (full file attached, has SciteConfig gunk too), except color is bright red for now, just so I don't miss it:

highlight.current.word=1
highlight.current.word.colour=#FF0000
highlight.current.word.by.style=1
indicators.alpha=255
indicators.under=1

So yeah, not working, nothing else turns red. When I changed colors (both manually and with SciteConfig) everything worked fine as soon as the file was saved. Any ideas? Did I stick my manual settings on the wrong side of the SciteConfig goop? Miss a required option? Thanks for all suggestions. Including the suggestion to take it to the SciTE mailing list, but I figured I'd ask here first since it's the AutoIt custom version.

Read Valiks post again. He's talking about some version of SciTE 2.

Also, you really should install SciTE4AutoIt3. It contains lots and lots of tools to make your AutoIt experience easier (look at the link). The "lite" SciTE included with AutoIt is not good for much.

And finally, since the latest SciTE4AutoIt3 uses SciTE 2.27 Valiks settings works just fine there.

That doesn't work in 1.79. That code was for the latest version of SciTE, which isn't in the Scite4Autoit3 package. Reread that thread you linked he mentions it is for the 2.xx version of SciTE in that post.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
