# Configure the styler to hightlight text

• Hello

I have the following code

``````Area:ServiceFront
{
Area:ServiceBack = 123123
}
``````

How to setup the styler to have a specific color for any text after “:” and till “=” or wightspace or EOL in this example?

• “Until EOL” is easy: DELIMITERn open = `:`, close = `((EOL))`
Unfortunately, stop-on-other-whitespace is harder; not sure how it could be done natively in a Notepad++ UDL.

There are two alternatives that I can think of:

1. just define it as a delimiter with `((EOL))` closing it, but set the STYLE for that delimiter to allow nesting of anything else (that you have defined). For example, if `=` was defined in Operators 2 as magenta, Number defined with blue foreground and cyan background, Keywords 1 defined as Green/Bold with `Area` as the keyword, and DELIMITER1 defined with open = `:`, close = `((EOL))` and foreground=red, bg=yellow, nesting=operators2+numbers, I see:

which might be enough for you.
1. Otherwise, you can add extra highlighting to a UDL language using regexes via the script `EnhanceUDLLexer.py` that @Ekopalypse shares in this linked post
