Language Selection

Language selection is enabled with a dropdown list. I just added couple of language choices. I thought that would be enough.

Additional Options

Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter is a very flexible tool. We could determine a few options as we want. You could determine them easily with the checkboxes on the bottom of the dialog box.

HTML Encoded Output

TinyMCE Plugin for inserting the code is outputting the content as it is and it is a headache for me. When you add HTML or XML code to be highlighted, it won’t be displayed inside the RSS readers because the page will define them as a code tag. Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter supports Encoded HTML as well. So the code will be HTML encoded output with the Windows Live Writer plugin.

With Line Breaks Option

Sometimes windows live writer wrapping up the source code when you view the source code. I couldn’t find how to disable that (I would appreciate if anybody tell me how). That cause the code text to be a in less line that it should be. So I have added a checkbox next to language selection list : “With Line Breaks”. If you check that option before inserting the code, ‘\n’ chars will be replaced with ‘<br/>’ so we will be able to preserve the lines.

There is a blog post on this plugin on my web blog :
