Escape backslash quotes in string in user defined language
I try to write a user defined language for Groovy (in fact just an improvement of one found on the web).
Groovy’ strings delimiter can be either ’ (single quote) or " (double).
You can escape a single quote within a string delimited by single quotes.
For example, you can have : ‘blah blah’ blah blah’.
My problem is that the escaped quotes ’ is always detected as end of the string.
So the last single quote is interpreted as the start of a new string which imply the highlighting is wrong for the reste of the file.
Is there any way in a user defined language to exclude ’ as string delimiter when ’ is a string delimiter ?
Thank you in adance for your help

In the UDL dialog, click the “Operators and Delimiters” tab. Under the caption “Delimiter 1” add the double quotation mark " as both “Open” and “Close”, the backslash as “Escape”. Same for the single quotation mark under “Delimiter 2”.
