Hello again,

I am using the syntax editor to highlight a language which uses multiple word commands e.g.

Make Object Box
Make Object Cube
Make Object Sphere

what is the best and fastest way of highlighting multiple word commands?

Thanks

Hi John,

You can use a regex pattern to do it... something like this:
<RegexPatternGroup TokenKey="YourToken" PatternValue="Make \s+ Object \s+ Box" CaseSensitivity="Insensitive" />

Ok,

Thanks, now if I do that for 300+ commands is it going to slow my program down.

We've tried to do optimizations to support many patterns fast. I think you will be fine because of our optimizations but it's hard to tell without actually implementing that many patterns.
