Does anyone know how to make Visual Studio.NET 2003 apply C/C++ style syntax highlighting to AngelScript script files? I''ve only been able to find info on how to do this in VS6.

I''m using MSVC6 and never thought to find out whether this was possible. Now my script files look as pretty as the rest of my code Thanks for the prompting.

Can''t help you with your .NET problem though. Sorry.

You can get MSVC 7.1 to apply existing language syntax highlighting/editting modes to new file extensions. For example, on my computer I want the .cow extension to have the same syntax highlighting and basically be treated in every other way like a .h file, so I added to my registry this key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\Languages\File Extensions\.cow]
@="{B2F072B0-ABC1-11D0-9D62-00C04FD9DFD9}"

If you wanted C# instead of C/C++ you can use:
{694DD9B6-B865-4C5B-AD85-86356E9C88DC} instead of {B2F072B0-ABC1-11D0-9D62-00C04FD9DFD9}

Java is {E6FDF88A-F3D1-11D4-8576-0002A516ECE8} and VB is {E34ACDC0-BAAE-11D0-88BF-00A0C9110049}.

Usual warning applies: this is a non-documented, non-supported feature and messing with the registry can have adverse effects on your computer and/or sex life, etc.

I figured this one out messing with the registry directly, so there may be easier methods out there.

Thanks for helping out SiCrane.

I haven''t started using VS.Net yet, but when I do this will come in handy.

There''s always VSIP. It lets you add support for any kind of language to VS.NET.
