normal script line 0
; normal script line 1
normal script line 2
/* normal script line 3
normal script line 4 */

normal script line 5
#Group1 on
normal script line 7
#Group1 end
normal script line 9
#Group3 off
normal script line 11
#Group3 end

normal script line 13

Not necessarily those colors, but you get the idea. Just so comments and inactive groups can be noticed at a quick glance.

Suggested many times before; and there are many solutions to this: ie IDEmirc on mircscripts.org is an addon package for editplus; a texteditor and lets you customise your syntax highlighting.

There's also some other editors around too.

Well actually, this is a feature suggestion for mIRC, not a question of "How can I edit my script with syntax highlighting". So you see he is not asking for help or alternatives, and he is not asking for someone to present a 'solution', because there is no problem. He is infact suggesting a feature that he thinks would make mIRC better.

You can use mEditor by RG. There is a copy on ms.org but that is not updated for mIRC 6.1, but I think it will be soon.

Just the same this is something that would be much better built into the Script Editor itself.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

Work arounds are always handy, but yea i thought this would be something much better built in. Hense the suggestion, sorry if it had been suggested in the past.

I personally wouldn't mind seeing the script editor separated from mIRC as it's own program. mIRC is nice and small at under 3 megs-- writing a comprehensive syntex checking/ coloring editor would probably push that well over 5 megs.

It wouldn't be difficult presently to use an external script editor program. mIRC has the option to monitor when external changes to a script file take place, so it can reload that file when necessary. Alt+R > Options > Monitor File Changes. You can also write your own editor that communicates with mIRC via DDE or Send Message, commanding mIRC to load/reload/unload... etc etc.

I think an external editor could even be made open source, allowing others to contribute to the effort, or let them modify the syntex-checking to conform to their own scripting style. An internal editor could not be made open source, though.
