A simple code syntax highlighter to change the colors of classes, structs, macros and typedefs in the Visual C++ 2010 IDE. It is implemented as a Visual Studio 2010 Extension, and uses the new Intellisense database that gets created for VC++ solutions. Also
supports HLSL and GLSL syntax.
Supports HLSL and GLSL syntax highlighting as a bonus, as the HLSL/GLSL files in my current main project had conspicuously black text that was annoying me. Not anymore!
Highlighterr is a Visual C# 2010 project, which is a text classifier extension for Visual Studio 2010's C++ editor. Its main purpose is to use the new Intellisense database for C++ solutions to change the font color that is used for various different C and
C++ code constructs, such as macros, classes, typedefs, interfaces and enums.
It could also make a good starting point for a more advanced C++ Intellisense system, since the built-in options for Intellisense in C++ leave a little to be desired compared to C#. This can be frustrating at times for someone who develops in both C++ and C#...
It could also make a starting point for a HLSL/GLSL intellisense system...
Here's the "before and after" shot:
..The user can change the colors used at any time via the standard place to change fonts and colors in the IDE.
Since Intellisense is pretty much spot-on for C++ now, I often wonder why Visual Studio doesn't do this by default.
