BBCode formatting for code

I'm wondering if it's possible to add/enable one of those convenient BBCode extensions that allow you to insert highlighted and formatted code in the middle of a line of text, without all the line breaks that [CODE] gives.

Sort of like this:

yup, all RCK needs to do is to add a new user defined BBCode like the following

New tag = [hl] (short for highlight)

<span style="background-color: yellow;">{param}</span> (yellow being the highlight colour, this can be changed of course)

And that's it

And add a custom button image to use

For syntax highlighting, you can try the PHP BB code.
For other language I would have to code something that use parsing lib like GeSHi.
Have you one code sample to parse here to see ?

This will work to add some yellow background to one text, but I don't think it will work inside a [code] formated text
Leffmann: post one example of what you would like

Syntax highlighting is not necessary, just a fixed width font and a change of background color, so you can write a small bit of legible code in the middle of a sentence. Like [CODE], but inlined.

edit: the one on the right that reads "malloc" looks just right I think, same font and colors as [CODE] here on EAB.

<font face="courier new"><span style="background-color:#e7e8f5; color:black">{param}</span></font>

That above code will use the 'Courier New' fixed width font (the same font used in EAB's [CODE] tag), give it the background colour the same as your 3rd image, and keep the font colour black.



Is that what you're asking Leffmann? And just to clarify, what you're wanting isn't to be included within [CODE] tags as RCK mentioned earlier?

Yes exactly as you've done there, DH, for use in the middle of a regular sentence, outside of [CODE]. Important is also that it must stop parsing just like [CODE], so it doesn't consolidate spaces and replace text with smilie-icons.

I like the font and colors that [CODE] uses, it just makes all the code snippets look more consistent.

I have a feeling this is going to be rather more difficult than I first thought.

What you're wanting is a bbcode that will [noparse] the given text that is to be highlighted (We'll call it that for now), but I already know it can't do that without the [noparse] destroying the highlighting bbcode at the same time, because the very text you're wanting to highlight is the very same text you are wanting to strip with [noparse]

The three tags that could be used are <pre> <xmp> <textarea>, but unfortunately, none of them work and none of them keep the highlight, despite the [noparse] tags being place inside the highlight code.

I'm not an html expert, so if anyone else knows of a way around, feel free to jump in

For me it's a kinda catch 22 situation, unless RCK can come up with some kind of script that will perform the noparsing but keep the highlight, then I have really no idea.

VB custom bbcode construction includes a 'Disable Smilies Within This BB Code' checkbox.

I just did a test using the html you posted above DH and here is the result:

Haps, does that still consolidate spaces?

EDIT: nm, I have just checked and no it doesn't unfortunately

Not an addon. 'VB custom bbcode construction' was obviously a poor choice of words (sounded good to drunken me at the time), I was just using the 'Add New BBCode' option.

My testing was done on VB4.2.2, and whatever I put between those custom tags came out exactly as I wrote it, could be it is not the same with this version.

I have sorted it

Do as you suggested and Disable smilies within the bbcode and use this code in replacement \o/

<pre style="display: inline; background-color:#e7e8f5; color:black">{param}</pre>

EDIT: Now it's up to RCK to decide if he'll add it

Example below:-



EDIT2: Excuse the colours I used, as it's been done on our vBulletin site using our default colour scheme

EDIT3: @haps, my testing was done in vB4.2.1 and I wouldn't expect there to be any difference between vB versions as it's using standard html code Anyway, if it wasn't for you mentioning the smilies could be disabled, I may not have pursued it and eventually figuring it out So hats off to you haps for making me succeed

let's test "code2" in a
demo with [    WhiteSpace]
sentence.
versus "code" in
Code:
demo with [    WhiteSpace]
another sentence.

It seems OK
Thanks to DH for all testing and compilation of html info

Thanks RCK

All of this is continuing to help me learn a little more of html code, just glad to have helped, albeit in a very small way

Yes, that's a useful feature for highlighting small code excerpts. Thanks RCK and DH!
