E-AD: Font and Color Settings for PeopleCode Editor Is Not Working As Expected on PT 8.58 (Doc ID 2691305.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.58 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Syntax highlighting for PeopleCode is experiencing a number of issues.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In Application Designer, open the PeopleCode Editor.
2. Go to Edit > Display Font and Colors. The Font and Color Settings dialog opens up.
3. Set different colors for each of the elements - Text, Text Selection, Number, Operator, Comment, QuotedString, Keyword, ClassDefn Builtin.
4. Check whether the settings are applied to the PeopleCode Editor.

Note that:
Not working:
- Text Selection => not working.
- Number - Modifying the color set for numbers is also modifying the color for &o.
- ClassDefn - Setting color for ClassDefn does not work for some of the delivered classes, such as SQL, Field, Record, etc. It works for some classes, such as ApiObject, Message, SOAPDoc, XmlNode; but not all classes.
  For some reason, Message is not recognized as ClassDefn, but Keyword. This was not the case on previous PeopleTools releases.
- Builtin - Setting color for Builtin does not work for certain functions and properties, such as %This, .Len, system variables (%UserId, %Page, etc.);

Working:
- Text => working fine. Default is black. Can be personalized in Edit > Display Font and Colors.
- Operator => working fine. Default is black. Can be personalized in Edit > Display Font and Colors.
- Comments => working fine. Default is black. Can be personalized in Edit > Display Font and Colors.
- QuotedString => working fine. Default is black. Can be personalized in Edit > Display Font and Colors.
- Keyword => working fine. Default is black. Can be personalized in Edit > Display Font and Colors

5. Back in the Font and Color Settings dialog (Go to Edit > Display Font and Colors), click on the Reset All button. Nothing happens.
