Coloring variables with VS2010 PHP Tools

Postby legarsjules » March 26th, 2012, 6:49 pm

Hello!

Is there any way to enable that $ variables would be displayed in another color? Because i use a custom theme color for the editor and the blue color is not very readable?

Thanks in advance.

Hi!

thank you for trying PHP Tools. I agree, the extension should respect custom user settings, so user can change any color he wants. I'll take a look so hopefully it could be done in the next update.

We want to have it released in few days. The only thing which is left is this issue - custom color for PHP variable. It could have default color, but we'd prefer to be customizable by user.

I've found out that our extension should present its custom coloring implicitly (in version you have installed) in Options>Fonts and colors>Display Items. There should be PHP - Variable item, but there is a bug in Visual Studio that doesn't refresh these options when new custom display items are added.

There is quick workaround so you don't have to wait for new version:
- Run regedit.exe
- go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\FontAndColors\Cache\
- delete {A27B4E24-A735-4D1D-B8E7-9716E1E3D8E0}

This will force Visual Studio update its cache and then you should be able to just change a color of PHP - Variable.

In new version we'll just refresh the Fonts and Colors ourselfs.

Cheers!

This color should be possible to override by changing "Identifier" Item foreground (in Options -> Fonts and Colors).

Does it work for you?

@Miloslav,

I'm using the version with VS2012RC, and I do not see an option for "PHP - Variable" as you mentioned previously. I deleted the registry key you mentioned, but no change. Restarted VS, still no option.

Any suggestions?
