user-defined syntax highlighting

  • Hi there :-)
    I have two questions regarding the user-defined syntax highlighting…

    1. I want to highlight all numbers - at the moment only positive numbers are highlighted…
    2. I want to highlight specific keywords (and just these keyword) when a specific second keyword is in front of the first keyword…
      Any comments are welcome!
      Thank you!

    numbers should already work out of the box


    but the second request, afaik, can’t be done with udl only.
    A possible solution has been offered here.

  • Hi,

    thank you very much for your answer.
    I think I didn’t described the issue proberly. Negative numbers are highighted, but not the ones without an zero at the beginning, e.g.:


    Do you have any idea?


  • @Heike-von-Waaden

    You are correct, in that case numbers aren’t colored.
    Beside the tip with your other problem, you could
    use -(minus) as an operator or defining a delimiter
    with start with -(minus) and ends with .(dot)
    and, for both, having the same color as numbers.
    Not sure if this works for you.

  • Thank you!
    It works when I define operator 1 as follows: -.
