Minor HTML language def problem

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 18 years ago by Kasper

I'm still using version 3 of SyntaxEditor, and I've noticed a small problem with the HTML language def, which I'm not quite sure how to fix. Have a look at this example:
 <div style='font-color: #ffffff;'> 
The space in the attribute value apparently ends the value, which is not correct. It works just fine when using double quotes, like this:

<div style="font-color: #ffffff;">
How is this best fixed? :)

Edit: Ah, I see my problem is shown right here on the board, since the codehighlightning uses the same engine :)

Just look at the ActiproSoftware.HTML.xml file in the C# sample project. It defines string attribute values as double quote delimited only. You can clone that and add a single quote delimited string attribute state as well. The reference it in the ChildStates of the DefaultState.

Wow, you're going a bit fast now hehe :). Is it the entire StartTagAttributeStringValueState that you think I should clone, and give it a new name, or what? An example here would be great :)

Okay, I've tried doing what you're describing, and I have made the following changes: I have added this large block:

    <!-- Start Tag Attribute Single Quote String Values -->
    <State Key="StartTagAttributeSingleQuoteStringValueState" TokenKey="StartTagAttributeStringValueDefaultToken" Style="TagAttributeValueStyle">
      <!-- Scopes -->
          <RegexPatternGroup Type="StartScope" TokenKey="StartTagAttributeStringValueStartToken" Style="TagAttributeValueStyle" PatternValue="= {LineTerminatorWhitespaceMacro}* \'" />
          <RegexPatternGroup Type="EndScope" TokenKey="StartTagAttributeStringValueEndToken" Style="TagAttributeValueStyle" PatternValue="\'" />
      <!-- Patterns Groups -->
        <RegexPatternGroup TokenKey="StartTagAttributeStringValueDefaultToken" PatternValue="[^'&gt;&lt;]+" />
      <!-- Child States -->
        <ChildState Key="PHPDirectiveCodeState" />
And then I have added this to the ChildStates of the StartTagAttributeState:
<ChildState Key="StartTagAttributeSingleQuoteStringValueState" />
This seems to work, but is it correct? And do I really need to add this much? :)

That is one way to do it. The other would have been to add the Scope your
defined in your code to the existing State as a second scope. Then in the
StartTagAttributeStringValueDefaultToken PatternValue, add the ' char
to the list of chars to break on.

Ah yes, that seems much simpler, and it works as well :). Thank you!
