What do i have to do to add a new State which marks me a single line starting with % and endig wit newline (\n)?

I tried it with this:

		  <State Id="5" Key="EmbeddedIso" DefaultClassificationTypeKey="Simulation">
		    <State.Scopes>
		      <Scope>
		        <Scope.StartPatternGroup>
		          <ExplicitPatternGroup Pattern="%" />
		        </Scope.StartPatternGroup>
		        <Scope.EndPatternGroup>
		          <ExplicitPatternGroup Pattern="\n" />
		        </Scope.EndPatternGroup>
		      </Scope>
		    </State.Scopes>
		    <State.ChildStates>
		      <StateRef Key="MultiLineComment" />
		      <StateRef Key="PrimaryString" />
		      <StateRef Key="EmbeddedIso" />
		    </State.ChildStates>
		  </State>
   

 and several variations. But im stuck now for two days :(

Thanks for any advice.

Hello,

It looks like your end pattern is wrong.  You have an ExplicitPatternGroup which means it's going to look for the two character sequence "\n" instead of a line feed character.  You'd want to use a RegexPatternGroup instead or could do this:

<RegexPatternGroup Pattern="{LineTerminator}" />
