    Lightbulb Color coded code

    Hello

    I have a suggestion. Many IDE programs improve code readability by using colors. In the first community that I joined, the forum had color coded code snippets. The site's name is Blueaura Delphi Community.
    Emptying ADOQuery onto DBChart.Series - Blueaura Delphi Community
    Maybe this community could do the same.

    Only a suggestion, thank you. ;)
    Eyes dwelling into the past are blind to what lies in the future. Step carefully.

    Hmm, i wanted to have color coded codes too but i could not find appropriate plugin. We are using the same forum software with them. I guess they have customized some existing plugin or wrote it from scratch.

    If any member would like to help on this, let me know. The forum software is vbulletin.

    Hi again,

    Great idea tim! Hopefully we can get this working, let us know how we can help!
    The problem is that vbulletin is not free software. It is difficult to get help on this. But as far as i remember, i can have an additional test installation of vbulletin on my server. If any of you have some free time and serious enough to play with the available plugins to add java code support to them, i can install a test forum for you to play with it for some time.

    But if i can not get help on this, i dont know when can i look at this issue because it has a low priority compared to other things to do.

    I think this would be a really nice visual feature added to our community. Let's do the test forum for a bit and see what we can come up with. From what I've seen so far, PHP code coloring is enabled in this community... so figuring out why or how to enable Java coloring shouldn't be that much more difficult, but I may end up eating my own foot.

    Default Java code tag.

    When will java syntax that inclosed with java codetag be highlighted?
    Is there already a plan for this?

    Or if it is already been implemented on this site, please let me know....

    I mean, when we post some java code snippets.
