Syntax Highlighting in Visual Studio 2015
Nov 22nd, 2015 at 3:18pm
 
Hey guys, I've got everything working fine it's just I really want the syntax highlighting that the arduino ide has. Is there anyway I can get that? I was that atmel studio had it, is there a way to use the config file (or whatever it is) into visual studio? Thanks.

in case I didn't make it clear, I just want visual studio to highlight library names, things like digitalwrite, analogwrite, stuff like that along with its regular stuff.

Oh I see. Maybe in the tools options you can customise some syntax coloring which might help. There might be an extension that does it in the gallery.

Its something that is on the list for review but currently we just use whatever bs does for c plus plus
