I would like an object method call to be syntax highlighted in Vim. For instance, in an expression that contains
person.getName(), I would like to match
getName and give it some syntax highlighting.
I have tried quite a number of patterns and at the moment, this is what I have in my experimental syntax file;
" :set iskeyword+=. syntax match myMatch "\v\.\zs\w+\ze\(" highlight link myMatch Function
It is not highlighting unless I comment in the first line above or issue
:set iskeyword+=. manually and then try editing the file.
How can I make the highlighting successful without having to set
. as part of
UPDATE: I have Pathogen and I have the file with the contents above in
.vim. My mistake. It's not
.js. Updated question. @Ralf
