Hello,

in our documents, we have some placeholders like [[Placeholder]]. Now we want to highlight these placeholders, for example with foreground color green.

How can I do this?

Best regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

You can do that either (1) in your lexer by assigning tokens with classification types that have related highlighting styles, or (2) by creating a classification tagger like in our AdornmentsHighlightWord QuickStart with an associated highlighting style. The lexer way is probably easier of the two options.

Hello,

I implemented a tagger. In OnTags, I searched for my placeholders with a regex.

Thanks for your help,
Stefan
