    can a line comment be a regex expression.

    the language i am working in uses a period as a comment but only if there is nothing before it on the line except for spaces.

    Thanks

    Hi Steven,

    No, but you can use Highlight (1) tab of configuration properties, and check “Highlight Right Side” or “Highlight Right All” to show the similar effect.

    Thank you,

    I have a couple regex hilighters:

    Hilight an AHK label,
    LABEL:
    [A-Za-z_0-9]+:$

    Hilight variables, like FOO+=, FOO:=, FOO.=
    [A-Za-z0-9_#[]@-]+(| |t)+(+|-|.|:)=[ ]?
    Now hilight the .=, :=, etc so it’s not the same colour as the variable
    (+|-|.|:)=

    Hilight variables inside percent signs.
    \%[a-zA-z0-9#_@$?[[]+\%

    While you can’t specifically call your regex a line-comment as such, you can just choose a text color for your regex that matches what you want for the line-comment.
    And do:

    ^.

    Hilight right side, as Yutaka indicated.
