TsynIniSyn (as all highlighters) only has coloring. It does not
edit/modify the file.
If you want to remove certain parts of the text in your ini-file, then
you must do that yourself (or write the code yourself). There is no
What you can do:
- write code that goes through the text of your inifile
- check each line (part of a line) if it is a comment. You can call the
SynIniSyn from your code to find out.
- If it is, the remove.
A few basic pointers (you will have to do quite some figuring out yourself)
For starting read http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/SynEdit_Highlighter
(ignore folding, just read "The Basics: Returning Tokens and Attributes" )
Then look at components\synedit\syneditexport.pas
it goes through the text, and checks each fragment.
for ONE line:
Highlighter.StartAtLineIndex(i - 1);
while not Highlighter.GetEOL do begin
Attri := Highlighter.GetTokenAttribute;
Token := Highlighter.GetToken;
you can test
if Attr = SynIniSyn.CommentAttribute
KIND := GetTokenKind;
