Is there a reason why

Code: Select all

Y=[SectionName:Y]
and

Code: Select all

Y=[SectionName:YH]
are not defined to have a special colour?

Also within the [Variables] section it would be great if

Code: Select all

VarName=
so they are better distinguishable from the rest.

Something like this:

I guess here the reason is that the VarName in that code could be anything (similar to, say, the name of a Shape's gradient, which is also not colored), compared to option names which are known. There is also the possibility of extra-parsing to know which of the Something= belongs to the [Variables] section and which is a regular option down in the skin. For the record, Lua's syntax coloring (or most of the other programming languages I tried) don't color variable names either (with the notable exception of PowerShell, where variable names are easily distinguishable because they are preceded by the $ dollar sign, which makes them easy to be detected when parsing the file).

I see, that is logical. I am still fairly new to that space so that is good to know. thank you!

Apparently the Process measure never got past the plugin status in RainLexer?

Code: Select all

[Variables]

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
DynamicWindowSize=1
AccurateText=1
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=47,47,47,255

--- Measures ---

[ProcessRainmeter]
Measure=Process
ProcessName=Rainmeter.exe
RegExpSubstitute=1
Substitute="^-1$":"not running","^1$":"running"

---Meters---

[Result]
Meter=String
FontFace=Consolas
FontColor=255,255,255,230
FontSize=16
AntiAlias=1
MeasureName=ProcessRainmeter
Text=Rainmeter is %1
Process.jpg
Notice the light red color of Process as the value of the Measure option, as if it was wrong. Just stumbled across it by chance while working on a related issue. Not a big deal, but I thought you should know.

I have made pull request.

Notepad++ will soon use scintilla 5, so I've updated all 3rd party files.
I've also added Process measure to valid keywords.

@jsmorley, could you check it, thx.

Thanks! Updated, built, and released!

Note that we have upgraded both Rainmeter and RainLexer to use the new Visual Studio 2022 Community version.

Cool.

Sorry forgot to mention, that some changes in recent Notepad++ 3rd party files will make minimal required Notepad++ v8.3+.

Missing bangs SetWindowPosition and SetAnchor.

Missing options OnHover and DefaultOnHover.

Both options HideOnMouseOver and DefaultHideOnMouseOver are deprecated.

Also documentation for options above https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/settings/skin-sections/ and https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/skins/rainmeter-section/defaults/ are using deprecated version.

btw
Documentation for RegValue=REG_BINARY is missing (https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/measures/registry/#RegValue)
