Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

The ZIP archive contains Notepad++ UDL files for config.pro and drawing setup (dtl) options.

I've created them for following CAD versions:

  • WF4 (= Pro/E Wildfire 4)
  • CEP5 (= Creo Elements/Pro 5, formerly Pro/E Wildfire 5)
  • CP2 (= Creo Parametric 2)
  • CP3 (= Creo Parametric 3)
  • CP4 (= Creo Parametric 4)

Basis for the options were the lists of Olaf Corten (thanks for them) http://proesite.com/UTIL/view_config.html and http://proesite.com/UTIL/view_setup.html.

 

General config.pro options get shown dark blue and bold.

Hidden config.pro options get shown in a lighter blue, bold and italic.

Comments get shown brown and can be folded, if they consist of several lines.

Drawing setup (dtl) options alse get shown dark blue and bold.

 

To add a UDL file to Notepad++, choose "Language" and then "Define your language" in the menu.

In the dialog which is opened then, choose the button "Import" and then the appropriate XML file.

Nice. Great work. Below an example:

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

The syntax highlighting is very handy, thanks for doing this.

Why different files for different versions?  We run CEP5, CP2 & CP3 here, depending on the client.

Also, I've attached a copy of the CP3 file for use with a config.sup.

I wanted to attach it, but it looks like you cannot attach a file to a comment on a document.  it's not hard to make, create a copy of the CP3 file for the config.pro and change this line:

    <UserLang name="config.pro CP3" ext="pro" udlVersion="2.1">

To this:

<UserLang name="config.sup CP3" ext="sup" udlVersion="2.1">

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Hi Doug,

I used different files for different versions, because i.e. some hidden options in WF4 became general options in CEP5.

Some other only exist in WF4, but not in CP2 and so on.

If I use only one file for all options, these facts can't be represented.

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Ah, yes, that makes sense.  If a distinction between hidden options and not wasn't desired, a single file would be easy to make.  That distinction is valuable, however, and not easy to account for in one file.

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Hi guys

Good job Domenic Laritz‌ , i like your color scheme. I have do the same things ( VonOx/npp-pro · GitHub ) and discuss them on Edit Creo Relations with Notepad++ instead of the default editor

Datas come from the great proesite.com also.

Maybe you can push your work on github ? Per creo version scheme is good idea.

Feel free to contribute.

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Very nice!!

I use Notepad++ all the time, this addition makes it even more valuable.

Hi Vincent KULAK,

thanks for your information!

At the moment I don't see the need to host my UDL files on GitHub. I hope, I don't have to modify them every week ...

Re: Notepad++ User Defined Language files for Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER

Yes agree with you, not every week , but a good place to share.

Can I use your files as a base to work and link this post as reference ?

Thanks
