    Syntax Highlighting in Visual Studio.NET

    Hi,

    Just wondering how to enable syntax highlighting for symbian keywords in Visual Studio .Net

    I found this link http://www.emccsoft.com/devzone/
    and this one:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...x_coloring.htm

    But I couldnt find the 'msdev.exe' (unless my search was wrong).

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks,
    ViruDoshi

    I am assuming you are using Carbise.vs, in which case, please read the documentation in "\Nokia\Tools\Carbide_vs\intellisense", normally found on your C drive.

    This will explain how to enable intellisense for your projects.

    I think you've misunderstood me. Intellisense is different to syntax highlighting. I dont want that little context box to appear if I type "." or "->".

    I am referring to how certains words appear in different colours to other colours based on what they are. Like comments are shown in green, typical keywords in blue, memory address in gray etc.

    Sorry, what you are looking for is Syntax coloring, not syntax hilighting. What you are probably looking for is devenv.exe, it was renamed for 2003.

    See http://www.codeguru.com/Cpp/V-S/tips...icle.php/c471/ on how to do this, though use the usertype.dat file from emcc.

    Hi,

    Ahh should have guessed the filename would have changed! Thank you.
