Manifest File with Syntax Highlighting and Palette!

Geertjan Wielenga

My support for Manifest files has expanded a bit—now there is syntax highlighting as well as a Component Palette with some (very basic) code snippets:

The left margin of the screenshot looks a bit odd. That's because I've started working on code folding—so far with little success...

By the way, there's a new tutorial on adding HTML code snippets to the Component Palette. It's very easy to do, as my previous blog entries have shown. Here's the complete tutorial: NetBeans Code Snippet Module Tutorial. (It includes downloadable sample code that you can download and play with in the IDE.) However, the Component Palette is enabled, by default, only for HTML files, JSP files, and Form files. Therefore, more tutorials in this area will be added soon—specifically, there'll be a tutorial on extending support for a new file type by adding a component palette.
