QT creator syntax highlighting for methods, functions, namespaces, parameters ect...? [solved]
In the editor I found the place that you change the colors for certain syntax's. However there is not a value for methods, functions, parameters.. and more is there any way to add them so that you can set it to a color? Strangely there is an option for virtual methods, so at least it knows the difference from functions and methods, but won't let you set the color of either.
There are options:
I have field, I do not have function. Don't have method either.
Qt Creator 2.4.1
Based on Qt 4.7.4 (32 bit)
Maybe it was added in the meantime - I'm using the bleeding edge, which is the master branch from git. You can check out the newly released 2.6 beta, too.
Anyway, I don't think us users can add new types, it depends on the parser. You can ask for/ propose those changes on Qt Creator mailing list, or even help in implementing them.
Trying to compile the latest qt creator on windows having big problems, mostly that I don't know what I'm doing. Is there a walk through for compiling on windows?
Yes. Download a linux distro, install, use, and live a happy life from now on.
Seriously, there is a big-lettered README file in Qt Creator's sources, it contains all the info you need, including a step by step guide.
Well I took your advice and put linuxmint on a vm. After giting the repo and compiling it which was really easy on linux, i ended up with 2.6.81 of qt creator.
I can confirm that there are added options including function and enumeration. Still no method though. And strangely static has been removed.
EDIT: after playing around with it, function will color both methods and functions the same color. Not ideal but I can live with it.
