The CSyntax class from CodeEditor is good enough for what TheIDE needs and is very close to covering my needs too, but not quite.

Over a year ago I proposed a change but no one was on board. So I forked it and have been using the forked version since.

But it is quite the hassle to update the fork when U++ gets new updates.

So I'm going back to my original proposal, this time more refined, and I will implement it and post it.

I also want to add a dark color scheme to CodeEditor.

U++ comes with Chameleon skins, 2 custom ones, so maybe it is also time to add a standard "dark" skin to U++? It is very "fashionable" these days to have dark GUIs.

Hello,

Some time ago I was thinking about adding theme manager to TheIDE. In my opinion the simplest version would be just adding array ctrl in "Syntax highlight options". In this array we will have the list of themes. Users should be able to edit, import and export such theme. By default TheIDE should bring two themes white (default) and dark.

I am personally "black on white" guy, so this feature is not important for me - but it is something that we should invest. I know that a lot of people likes to code in dark environment.

I am looking forward to your changes in CodeEditor. Do you plan to improve TheIDE as well?

Sincerely,
Klugier

It is interesting.

A possible addition would be to add the possibility of printing or copying to clipboard in color.


Best regards
Koldo

But I do plan to steal the debugger from TheIDE for my own IDE Smile .

But the current debugger is bad.

So there is a very small chance I can improve it an the changes come back to TheIDE.
