Highlighterr for Visual C++ 2010


A simple code syntax highlighter to change the colors of classes, structs, macros, etc in the Visual C++ 2010 IDE. It is implemented as a Visual Studio 2010 Extension, and uses the new Intellisense database that gets created for VC++ solutions. Also highlights HLSL and GLSL.

I needed to restart Visual Studio 2010 twice before the highlighting agreed to work, but now it seems alright ! :)

Note: colors are configurable in "Options -> Fonts and Colors", with their names starting by "Highlighterr".

Very nice extension, simple and clean. Like autor said "I often wonder why Visual Studio doesn't do this by default". Anyway, great job!

    • Hi, 
      I'm using you extension about a week, and found small problem - sometimes you can see highlighted keywords in comments, which is a little bit frustrating.
      Hope you can fix it.
    • Hi, the latest version should have this functionality you're after. If you're still having troubles after installing the latest version, pls let me know. Thanks!
    • Hi,
      I'm using version 1.4 and sometimes still can see highlighted keywords in comments :(
    • Oh, I just noticed this happening myself the other day.. I think I know what's causing it now, hopefully I can fix it over the next week or so. Will let you know.
    • In version 1.6 I had another go at getting all the multi-line comments right, hopefully it works a bit better for you.
    • version 1.7 uses the same function as the VS built-in CppColorer now to determine multiline comment status, so there should finally be no more problems with multiline comments..
    • Doesn't work on windows server 2008......
