Hi,

I am using SyntaxEditor with Javascript language.

I build an outline from editor content using JavaScriptSyntaxLanguage parser.

It works fine, and I get all the IAstNode I need.

But I would like to also get IAstNode on comment lines.

Is there a way to tell the parser to detect these nodes ?

 

Regards

Hello,

Unfortunately not.  Comments are filtered out by the token reader that feeds tokens to the parser.  Otherwise we'd have to code the grammar to allow comments in every possible contextual location.  Thus there are no AST nodes available for comments.
