Hi,

while playing around with the hiEdit.dll and autohotkey, a few things really annoyed me

multiline comments such as

/*

commentline1
commentline2

*/

or c style comments such as

/* comment */


cannot be properly syntax highlighted (at least me dunno how) - i'd solve this with regex \*\/.*?\*\/, but this would lead into trouble i guess

also having the possibility to collapse code (with an indication at the line numberings) would be great

and what i really missed is a lil feature that allows to see either the appropriate bracket or quotation mark while typing. by means when i open a bracket, and type a close bracket, it would be great to see the according opening bracket changing its color while being at the closing bracket

( <-- this is my bracket indicator

(this is a sample)
this is some more
(this is last sample line)

)| <-- this is my cursor

when using such indications, it would also be great if bold txt would be supported, so that missing bracket, quotes, whatever can be displayed with a style which indicates that there is its counterpart missing.

for example like this
<-- missing bracket
(this is a sample)
this is some more
(this is last sample line)

)| <-- this is my cursor the nonbold style 'd indicate a counterpart is missing

Questions which occured to me:

is it also possible to have non-printable chars such as whitespaces, tabs CR LF etc displayed?
how do i set up the display, so that lines will be wrapped or edit control scrollable removing the VSCROLL style didnt do the trick


thats all for now. pretty sure that more is to come. besides this is a great lil control to code with.

my two cents

greets
