Problem with PHP7 MySQL syntax highlight

  • Hi there,

    I’m using N++ latest version for editing PHP7 files. My problem is with the PHP7 MySQL command’s syntax as those commands are not highlighted. For example:

    • mysql_connect
    • mysql_query
    • mysql_close etc.

    these commands are highlighted, but the new PHP7 commands, e.g.:

    • mysqli_connect
    • mysqli_query
    • mysqli_close etc.

    these commands are not highlighted.

    If possible, how can I switch the syntax highlight on for these commands (and others), too?

    Thanks for your help.


  • Hi there,

    Something has been missed…

    It would be also a good solution if I could import a PHP syntax highlight definition into N++ (then I’d append the PHP7 MySQL commands I’d use) but unfortunately I hadn’t found any XML file (UDL) to do that.


  • Hello @Koppány-Attila,

    Settings->Style Configurator->Language->php

    here you can customize the highlighting and if you click on word in Style two new boxes appear
    default keywords and user-defined keywords.
    Here ou can add your mysqli … words.
