For the last few days I've been working on adding a calltips feature for ZScript (Notepad++ only), and... here it is:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ktea1vu5kjfn ... s.zip?dl=1

It doesn't support every single function out there, but it does so for a good number of them.

Now, to install this, copy the zscript.xml file into <path_to_notepad++>\plugins\APIs. Rename the language of the syntax highlighter from "ZSCRIPT (DK/LT)" to "ZScript". Launch Notepad++ and from the menus bar go to: Settings->Preferences->Auto-Completion. Tick the Function parameters hint on input option.

I'm considering this feature "experimental" for now. Depending on the feedback I get, if any, I might or might not go official with it.

How do you make your entire Notepad++ UI black? The last time I tried, I could only change the text editor portion to black... but the other Windows elements (like the taskbar at the top, the menu bar etc) remain white.

I'm using a Windows theme. It's a "high contrast" one, specifically.

A bit of an update: I'm currently working on reviving this thing after it had died at the end of November, doing it from scratch. It'll take a good while to bring it back from the dead, and it'll be the last time that I do. If it ever dies again, that's it.

As for the calltips feature, for anyone wondering, it's canceled.

What do you mean by "died" and why do you need to restart from scratch? The GitHub repository appears to still be there.

I stopped updating it for reasons I won't discuss, so it fell behind. A lot happened ZScript-wise since then (scriptification, new stuff, and directory reorganization) that figuring out what needs to be added, changed or removed in the config files is going to be a pain. Redoing it is also a pain, but it's a lesser one, so I'm going with that.

Okay. I'm back on-track with this. The configurations should be up-to-date.
