Making Key Words in a different color

Postby Wardlow » June 9th, 2007, 12:56 am

I remember one programming language I was programming in when you write the function words, those words turn a certain color. For example

StrtoInt(x);

'StrToInt' would turn magenta. Is there a way to do that with delphi?

When you do not write it yourself from scratch here some options:

Orpheus (Delphi VCL) by Turbo Power (Open source)

TColorMemo (Delphi VCL) by Baltic Solutions (Freeware, Not sure if still available Website offline)

TPlusMemo (Delphi VCL) by Electro-Concept Mauricie (Shareware)

SynEdit from http://synedit.sourceforge.net/ (Open source)

TAdvMemo from http://www.tmssoftware.com/ (Shareware)

HPV- thank you for your help. I have decided to do what you said, and looked at downloading the first item on the list. I'm a little confused with the directions for installation. The first (2) I understand, however with direction #3 I'm a little confused. I have downloaded and unzipped the files in the packages directory. How do I add the source subdirectory (which on my computer is C:\Source) to the IDE's library path?

Thank you


1. Unzip the release files into the packages directory of your Orpheus 4.06 installation
(e.g., c:\turbopower\orpheus\packages).

2. Start Delphi 2005 or 2006.

3. Add the source subdirectory (e.g., c:\turbopower\orpheus\source) to the IDE's
library path.

I have not used orpheus myself and I only have D5+D7 (german),
but I think there must be the Menu Tools/Enviroment Options/ where you can set the library path.
