Syntax highlight of .inc, .module and .test files

So far this looks like the nicest of the php tools I've tried in vs2010. However they all have one thing in common. They don't syntax highlight most of the files in Drupal: .inc, .module are the most important. .test also important. Anyway to get this extension to work with these files too?

Thank you very much for the suggestion, we'll take care of it so it gets implemented in the next release. I'll inform about the progress on this in this thread.

I see there was a release, but the Drupal related files, .inc, .module aren't highlighted. Feature didn't make the cut? Do you think it will?

thanks

Hi Philip,

The feature needed a little more work as *.inc files are also associated with C++, so we didn't have a time to include it in current major release which was mainly focused on productivity features as IntelliSense.

However now it's on the top of the list and we'll make the minor update as soon as this is done.

Thank you very much for your patiance on this.

The feature of custom file extensions is almost ready. I'm trying it with Drupal and it works great for me including IntelliSense and code navigation(F12). You can expect an update really soon.

Hello,

today we've submited the update for PHP Tools for Visual Studio. It has the requested feature in the Professional version. You can try it out. All you have to do is to set file extensions that you want to map to PHP it in Tools > Options > Text Editor > File Extensions. Restart VS, open Drupal as web site and that's it:)

Make sure to give us a feedback here if everything works well for you.

Cheers,
Miloslav

This is great news! I'll give a try this weekend and get some feedback to you. Been busy on another project but now can work on this again.

Thanks!

Great! We'll certainly appreciate any feedback or more feature suggestions.

We've also created a tutorial on how to setup additional file extensions http://www.devsense.com/products/php-tools/doc-demos

Sorry for the delay but just wanted to pass on that the updated php tools work really well. I bought it for my own use and hope to convince the employer to purchase it as well. I was impressed with the intellisense that picked up not just the methods in the file I was working on, but also the rest of the Drupal api. It has been fast too.
