UDL: Suffix Mode
or maybe a better approach - what allows the language how a variable
can be defined
Always with $. The only time $ would ever be used in this language is to end a string variable.
No, there is a misunderstanding, if I use
then a variable like UniqueKey$ will be colored but a variable like
Unique-Key$ won’t be.
If I know what the language allows, which chars can be used for a
variable name, then we can find the right regex to make this work.
String functions can also end with a $ but those I have listed as a keyword in my UDL with prefix mode enabled. Since every function begins with “fn”.
Good to know - do you have a reference to the language you are using?

I can also give you the section from my userDefineLang.xml if it’s helpful
So this is what we are looking for, right?
First the script

Do the following
copy the script
goto Plugins->Python Script->New Script
give it a meaningful name and press save button
paste the script into the newly ceated document
open one of your BR! Source files
click on Plugins->Python Script->Scripts->NAME_OF_THE_NEWLY_CREATED_PYTHONSCRIPT
If you want to know the details, let me know.
btw, when it works like you want and want it to be available automatically
on every npp startup we need to create a USER startup.py but
I guess this can be discussed it the script is useful to you at all
Thanks for putting the time into this!
First, will this work on 64 bit N++?
I had some trouble finding a version of Python Script that was compatible but I managed to find a beta version.
also, I’m getting this error.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Users\mmiller\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\plugins\Config\PythonScript\scripts\create_strings.py”, line 4, in <module>
File “C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\PythonScript\lib\ctypes_init_.py”, line 7, in <module>
from _ctypes import Union, Structure, Array
ImportError: No module named _ctypes
Yes, as I’m using x64 version as well.
Where did you download pythonscript plugin from?
Why didn’t you use Plugin Manager?
The official release channel for python script plugin is here.
I don’t have plugin manager so I went through http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php?title=Plugin_Central .
Thanks for dealing with my idiocy. Going through plugin manager worked perfectly. Is there any way I can donate for your time?

yes, we urgently need 5 macbook pro’s. 👍
thanks in advance. 😂
Thank you very much for asking and yes there is one thing
you could do if you like :-)
It might sound strange but if you have or know a cooking recipe
which is worth testing - I would appreciate.
I know tastes are different so … :-)
REALLY - macbooks … NOWADAYS … :-D
I will get you a recipe when I get home from work. :-)
The macbooks will take some time. :-D
Thanks again for your help.
I also realized afterwards that there are a few internal functions that end with $ and don’t start with fn but I just modified the regex to take care of them.
