QlikView for Notepad++ Update

Whilst working on the QlikView script highlighting for UltraEdit, I noticed a couple of minor omissions from the list of keywords I took from the language file I produced for Notepad++. So I've now update it and released a new version 0.4 of the language file.

You can find the download link and details on how to install or upgrade it here As before, if you find any issues leave me a comment below.

It's now been downloaded over 700 times, astonishing!

QlikView for UltraEdit

After releasing the Notepad++ language def, I was asked by one of my clients if it was possible to produce a similar syntax highlighting for UltraEdit which they use exclusively throughout their IT department. So after having a bit of a play, I've managed to create something which is on par with the Notepad++ highlighting.

Syntax highlighting in UltraEdit is a lot more capable than that in Notepad++ so I intend to investigate it a little further and see how close to QlikView's script highlighting this can get. I thought I'd release this initial version though for people to use and test.

Full instructions and screen shots on how to install it will come with the next release but for now you can download the QlikView UltraEdit Wordfile and it can be installed by copying the file into the folder "%appdata%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\Wordfiles\"

As always, if you find any bugs or have any suggestions, please leave a comment below.
