|You can choose whether to add line numbers to the highlighted code. Line numbers make it easier to refer to a line in the description, but they increase the size of the highlighted code. For large codes, you can decrease the size of the highlighted code with compression (see below).|
The syntax highlighter allows you to create three different buttons that help your visitors to copy or print the source code.
You can enable or disable these footer buttons, as well as change their labels.
Note: the dottoro-highlighter-v4.js file must be included in every page where you use footer buttons.
|Tab characters may optionally be replaced by spaces. If tab replacement is enabled, you may specify the number of spaces for tab characters to control the width of the indent to be used.|
|The syntax highlighter makes a difference between known, unknown and invalid language elements, and appends different style classes to them. A language element is known if it is supported by Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera.|
Since the size of the highlighted code can be much more larger than the original source code, the highlighter provides a compression mechanism.
The compressed code is optimized for search engines, so your code appears in search engines result pages (SERPs) in its original form.
- the generated HTML code is smaller
- your pages load faster
- the dottoro-highlighter-v4.js file must be included in every page where you use compressed highlighted code.
|Finally, the syntax highlighter service is available through a SOAP interface. If you want to use this service programmatically, not manually, (e.g. for your forum), you can do it. For further details, please see the Service Keys page.|
