Office Word Syntax Code Highlighter

by Ben Kenwright


This plug-in for Microsoft's Office Word is so text can be selected and colour coded for C/C++.  This is currently a first version developed for Word 2007.  The code is highlighted using C/C++ formatting rules (however, it can still be of benefit to C# and Java due to their similarity).  Screenshots of the word plug-in are shown below.


The highlighted text that is colour coded to correspond to C/C++ coding rules is also assigned a style in word - so font, size etc. can be updated throughout the document without complications.


The package is in alpha - but bugs and future features that will make the add-in indispensable are welcome.  Currently being developed in C# in Visual Studio 2010.  While the current build has be created for Office 2007 Word - it should work with later revision.

To make the add-in user friendly it has been assigned its own ribbon in Word called 'CodeFormat' - as shown below in the screenshots.  Options to have the selected code embedded in a table and optionally numbers down one side can be selected with the check boxes.
