    I believe that functionality of selected identifier highlighting on double click (similar to Force.com developer console web editor for an example) in Apex, JS and VF pages (identifier_highlight.PNG) would vastly improve code readability and IDE usability.

      Hi Frano,


      Thank you for contacting us with this suggestion.


      This functionality is already present in Apex files, and we are going to implement it for JS and Visualforce pages in future versions of The Welkin Suite IDE.

      If you would have any other questions or suggestions, please contact us. We will be happy to assist.


      Regards,

      Kate

        Hi Kate,


        Thank you for your quick feedback! I really didn't notice that this functionality is already present in the WS Apex files editor - is there configuration/settings option that must be properly configured in order to get it working?


        Thanks,

        Best regards,

        Frano

          Hi Frano,


          In The Welkin Suite instant highlighting in the Apex code works the following way:

          • If your caret position is within a word - the IDE will highlight all occurances of this word in the current file
          • If you select any text in the editor - the IDE will highlight all occurances of the selected text in the current file

          There are no specific settings required to enable this feature.

          You can find the screenshot how this looks like attached to this post.

          Also, all the highlighted entries are also highlighted on the code map scrollbar on the right side of the editor - with small lines of the same color.

          In case you'd like to change the color of highlighting you can do this from the Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors and there find the "Apex - Highlight Text".


          Hope this helps, however if this functionality is still not working for you - please send the Bug Report from the IDE using the Help -> Report a Bug option, so we can analyze your log files.


          Thank you,

          Vladimir

            Hi Vladimir,

            Thank you for your quick feedback! It seems that this functionality is really working fine in my case - it seems that it happened to be a configuration issue on the WS "bright" color scheme - the "Apex - Highlight Text" option was set to automatic/default colors so no highlighted text could be seen.
            When I adjusted those colors settings it was obvious that this functionality is working fine.


            Best regards,

            Frano

              Hi Frano,


              Thank you for getting back with the result :)

              We'll check the default color settings for the Light theme and will change it a bit!


              Thank you,

              Vladimir
