Does anyone know why keywords are being highlighted in non keywords? | UDL



  • For reference, this is a UDL and the programming language is ABAP.

    Does anyone know why keywords are being highlighted in non keywords? Can someone please explain?

    For example, the word is idoc_word and the “do” gets highlighted.

    In the folder & default tab, if I keep it in folding code style one the keyword would be highlighted in non keyword. But if I put it in folding code style two, the keyword does not get highlighted in the non key word. So the do won’t be highlighted in idoc_word.

    Some of the keywords require spaces around them, depending on which box you put the keywords into.

    For example, the word is idoc_word and the “do” gets highlighted.

    In the folder & default tab, if I keep it in folding code style one the keyword would be highlighted in non keyword. But if I put it in folding code style two, the keyword does not get highlighted in the non key word. So the do won’t be highlighted in idoc_word.

    In Folding in code 1 style, the keywords or symbols do not need spaces around them, so if you have do in the Folding in code 1 style then it will highlight the do in idoc_word. In Folding in code 2 style, the keywords or symbols require spaces around them, so the do in Folding in code 2 style will not highlight the do in idoc_word. If you are matching words (like if/elsif/else or while/wend), I find it best to use Folding in code 2; if you are using symbols (like {/}), it’s usually okay to use Folkding in code 1.



  • @PeterJones Thanks for helping me get a better understanding of how the different folding style works and why keywords were being highlighted in non keywords.
