interdev code highlighting

interdev code highlighting

interdev code highlighting

Recently, I had my install of VI6 editor start highlighting all of the text and tab space between the server side script markers <% %>  All of the text is highlighted in yellow, no keyword highlighting is shown. Changing the background color in the text editor properties just turns off the highlighting but no other features of intellisense are working. All of the intellisense checkboxes are checked on in the tools-->options-->text editor settings.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck. Any idea what registry setting has gone bezerk?

RE: interdev code highlighting

Me too. No idea like you.


RE: interdev code highlighting

Be happy... I got the solution

You just have to
1) re-register htmed.dll & triedit.dll
2) Start VID6
3) Set interdev editor as default editor

Bye, Luca.

How do you re-register a dll?


RE: interdev code highlighting

Disregard above question about re-registering a dll.  I found it


RE: interdev code highlighting

fffffffffff you are the man.

Anyone know how this gets messed up? I even tried uninstalling/reinstalling completely and it made no difference.

RE: interdev code highlighting

Wow! Uninstalling and re-installing. Re-registering DLL's.

I've run into this highlighting problem a couple of times. I've never got as far as re-installing ID or DLL's. In most cases, I just had to experiment with adding and removing the script markers ("<%", "%>"). I think I may have even tried removing all ASP script with markers, typing in new markers, and then pasting my ASP scrip back.

I'm sorry I can't remember the exact solution, or the order I did things in, but I believe you just have to make sure all of your markers are properly opened and closed.

Next time this happens, I'll pay close attention to what I did to solve it.
