as jpols is offline like usual, say it here.

now also udf-collector seems to be "compatible" with postprep.

I just wonder should it show the colors or not...

I don't have a very strong view on highlighting variable and macros in strings for posting. For consistancy I think it would be better if they are, after all as us non-poets say, "a variable is a variable..." [Wink]

It's more important to highlight variables and macros in editors, as forgetting to double up $,@ and % characters is a common and easily fixed error. Here is an example from VIM with and without highlighting variables in strings:

"Variable $$sUserName is $sUserName, @@WKSTA is @WKSTA" ?
"Variable $$sUserName is $sUserName, @@WKSTA is @WKSTA" ?


If the processing or coding overhead is significant it is probably not worth the bother.

On the issue of indenting shouldn't it simply respect whatever is in the original code? Or am I missing something?

there is no indention.
only place where that must occur is the onclick which needs to have space before equal sign.

like I pasted your code in kixcryptGUI, is the indention messed up?

the var in string, it actually was that way before and it's faster to execute and easier to code...

but, string is a string is a string.

Richard,

Thank you for your response
only so much :

90% of the errors in KiX coding are missing quotes (at least it was when when I started to code KiX and sometimes I do this still [Roll Eyes] ), so the best approach to visualize these is consequently colorize strings whereever they occur : even those multilined execute statements I start to use more and more since this PostPrep coding (my Uedit btw. doesn't colorize ,multiline strings : one of the annoying facts about it ) ; That would get the best (IMHO) possibility to easy recognize those errors

regards
J.

The VIM syntax file doesn't handle multi-line quoted strings either - I can't blame anyone else as I'm the maintainer LOL

You can download it (and get more info) here

Yes it is free (including source code). It is covered by a "charityware" license, similar to KiXtart's "careware". And the maintainer Bram Moolenaar is Dutch I believe. Spooky, eh?

It has a powerfull scripting language and a generic WIMP/GUI interface.

It's probably most useful to people who already know VI and it's keystroke / regular expression / colon prompt commands. Someone who just wants a syntax highlighting editor on Windows is probably better off with something simpler.

It has some great features that I'm only just discovering after years of using it. I recently discovered "folds", which allow you to collapse sections of code to a single line. I now "fold" functions and variable declaration areas in my code, and as the folding can be nested I fold large and complex SELECTs within the function folds.

And of course it supports "convert to HTML" for any programming language syntax [Wink]

Of course there is a need for post-prep, it is designed to to a specific job.

VIM's HTML conversion is designed simply to convert the syntax coloured text to HTML format suitable for representing as a flat web page.

Post-prep is designed to convert plain text to a format suitable to posting to the KiXtart forums which might require fiddling with the code slightly to get it to look right and to get around the "tag not allowed" and similar posting problems.

Don't stop now!
