Hi,

I use VAX for C++ with syntax highlighting and colouring enabled. I also use VAX for C# for some of the features (VA Outline, etc) but I do NOT want the syntax colouring enabled.

Is it possible to selectively enable/disable the highlighting and colouring based on the language? If not, this should be a feature request.

Thanks!

Unfortunately no. You could tell VA to ignore C# code files, but then obviously you would not get the other VA features in your C# files.

Have you considered a more subtle set of colours for VA, so the VA syntax highlighting is less obvious in C#, while still useful in C++?

We are considering making VA settings language specific, so I have added syntax colouring to this feature request, but it isn't something we are likely to get to any time soon.

Thanks for the quick reply! For now I can live with going into the VA settings and toggling the enable colouring option - I don't switch between C++ and C# often on a daily basis for this to be a concern but would be a nice addition in the future, so I appreciate it being added to the list, even if just for consideration!

Thanks again,

If it helps, you can map a keyboard shortcut to the command:

VAssistX.ToggleColoring

in the IDE's Options dialog -> Environment -> Keyboard

allowing you to quickly and easily toggle this setting without going into the VA options dialog.
