SciTEGlobal.properties highlight.current.word.stoponperiod

Recommended Posts



  • SciTE Version 3.7.3 Feb 16 2017
    • SciTE.exe
  • Autoit
    • Aut2exe.exe

When using object methods is there a means to allow the SciTE double-click on variable highlighting to "Stop On Period"? (similar to highlight.current.word.stoponspace).

Currently, double-clicking to highlight will encompass the $var + ".method".


Global $oFruit = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary")
$oFruit.Add("apple", "red")
$oFruit.Add("banana", "yellow")
$oFruit.Add("pear", "green")
Global $oFruitItems = $oFruit.Items
Global $oFruitKeys = $oFruit.Keys
;~ Global $iCount = UBound($oFruitKeys)
Global $iCount = $oFruit.Count
ConsoleWrite($oFruitKeys[0] & " = " & $oFruitItems[0] & @CR)
ConsoleWrite("Count = " & $iCount & @CR)

Double-clicking the 1st line "$oFruit" does properly highlight all instances of variable (see attached).

However, double-clicking the 2nd line "$oFruit" highlights the variable, the dot-separator and the "Add" method.

Can Jos or another direct me to a solution within "PersonalTools.lua" perhaps?

The highlight option in the properties file doesn't refer to double click highlighting, it refers to what else gets highlighted when you highlight something.

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.

In au3properties is defined which characters are considered to determine a word:


Add this to your SciTEUser.properties and you will see it stops at the dot:


Don't know for sure what you will break but that is the way SciTE works as far as I know. :)

Jos, that worked perfect. I'll update if I notice something else breaking as a result.

Thank you kindly for the quick response!
