SciTE change syntax parameter highlight color?

31 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm running a black background and have adjusted my colors with SciTEconfig accordingly, but the only thing that I can't figure out is how to change the highlighted parameter color from the syntax description that pops down when you type in a function name. The color is dark blue which is tough to see against a black background. I've dug around in the forums but haven't found a clear answer. Any help much appreciated...

DrLarch,

I have got as far as seeing that you need to use SCI_CALLTIPSETFOREHLT - but as yet I cannot get it to work. You may have to wait until our SciTE guru Jos comes back next week. :)

Well, thanks Melba23 for checking into it - somehow I'm relieved to find that it isn't just something simple I missed!

LaCastiglione,

Do not keep us in suspense - you found that where? :)

He probably performed a text search on the folder with the word "calltip"

Blue_Drache,

No, I had already done that - which is why I asked. ;)

Looks like we wait for Jos... :)

OK, obviously I'm doing something wrong - and I'm obviously in unfamiliar territory...

I fiddled around with the calltips_color_highlight setting in several places, all to no avail. Still the dark blue default...

Here's my relevant(?) files:

SciTE_Doug.lau file: (referenced by SciTEStartup.lua)...

myCallTips = EventClass:new(Common)

function myCallTips:OnOpen(path)
    myCallTips:set_above()
    myCallTips:set_highlight_color()
    return true
end

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- set_above()
-- Displays the calltip above the function.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
function myCallTips:set_above()
    local calltips_set_above = tonumber(props["calltips.set.above"])

    if ((calltips_set_above ~= 1) and (calltips_set_above ~= 0)) then
        calltips_set_above = 1
    end

    scite.SendEditor(SCI_CALLTIPSETPOSITION, calltips_set_above)
end

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- set_highlight_color()
-- Set the color of the highlighted calltip property
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
function myCallTips:set_highlight_color()
    local calltips_color_highlight = props["calltips.color.highlight"]

    if (calltips_color_highlight == '') then
        calltips_color_highlight = "#FFFFFF" -- dark blue default
    end

    calltips_color_highlight = myCallTips:BGR2Decimal(calltips_color_highlight)

    if (calltips_color_highlight == "Error") then
        return true
    end

    scite.SendEditor(SCI_CALLTIPSETFOREHLT, calltips_color_highlight)
end

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- BGR2Decimal()
-- convert BGR to decimal, duh! (albeit in a hack and stab manner)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
function myCallTips:BGR2Decimal(BGR)
    if (BGR.len(BGR) ~= 7) then
        return "error"
    end

    BGR = BGR:gsub('#', '') -- remove hash
    BGR = BGR.reverse(BGR)
    BGR = "0x"..BGR

    return tonumber(BGR)
end

You have:

LoadLuaFile("SciTE_Doug.lau", "C:Program FilesAutoIt3")

but should be:

LoadLuaFile("SciTE_Doug.lua", "C:Program FilesAutoIt3")

Also, let me get you the latest version of that lua file...

myCallTips = EventClass:new(Common)

function myCallTips:OnOpen(path)
    self.error = "Error"
    myCallTips:set_above()
    myCallTips:set_highlight_color()
    return true
end

-- set_above()
-- Displays the calltip above the function.
function myCallTips:set_above()
    local calltips_set_above = tonumber(props["calltips.set.above"])

    if (calltips_set_above == 1) then
        scite.SendEditor(SCI_CALLTIPSETPOSITION, true)
    else
        scite.SendEditor(SCI_CALLTIPSETPOSITION, false)
    end

    return true
end

-- set_highlight_color()
-- Set the color of the highlighted calltip property
function myCallTips:set_highlight_color()
    local calltips_color_highlight = props["calltips.color.highlight"]

    if (calltips_color_highlight == '') then
        calltips_color_highlight = "#FF0000" -- dark blue default
    end

    calltips_color_highlight = myCallTips:BGR2Decimal(calltips_color_highlight)

    if (calltips_color_highlight == self.error) then
        return false
    end

    scite.SendEditor(SCI_CALLTIPSETFOREHLT, calltips_color_highlight)

    return true
end

-- BGR2Decimal()
-- convert BGR to decimal, duh! (albeit in a hack and stab manner)
function myCallTips:BGR2Decimal(BGR)
    if (BGR.len(BGR) ~= 7) then
        return self.error
    end

    BGR = BGR:gsub('#', '') -- remove hash
    BGR = BGR.reverse(BGR)
    BGR = "0x"..BGR

    return tonumber(BGR)
end

You don't need any of the LUA stuff to just update the colors, just add the 2 lines I posted into your SciTEUser.properties and set the colors to what you want.

Thanks for your help, but I do have your two lines (thanks Jos) in my SciTEUser.properties (scroll down in the code posted above). I also have the calltips.color.highlight=#FFFFFF line added as well in the same file (last line - put in the FFFFFF and 000000 to see if I could throw it one way or another with no luck). I fixed my bad file extension for the .lua (been a long week, thanks LaCastiglione for catching that), but I still get dark blue text. :) . Nothing seems to effect the highlight color... I do have to say though that after adding all those lua's files and tweaks that LaCastiglione mentioned (in the link), my SciTe is now doing cool stuff ;) it didn't do with just the regular install. Now it's matching parenthesis and doing other nice auto-formatting stuff. Cool!! Edited by DrLarch

OK, uninstalled and reinstalled just now. Same thing. Nothing will change the highlight color from dark blue. Jos's line changes the foreground and background color just fine. Does this work for anyone?

Did you do the following steps?:

1. Use the Full version of SciTE (Not the one that comes with AutoIt3 installer.)

2. Add the line to sciteuser.properties:

style.au3.38=fore:#DADADA,back:#15191E

3. open a file with .au3 extension.

That does it for me.

Jos :)

This is all I need to do to make it work for AutoIt3
