Syntax Highlighting in XQuery

Oxygen XML Developer supports syntax highlighting in XQuery documents to improve the readability of the content and reduce the time it takes to internalize the semantics of the structured content.

To customize the colors or styles used for the syntax highlighting colors for XQuery files, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences).
  2. Go to Editor > Syntax Highlight.
  3. Select and expand the XQuery/XPath section in the top pane.
  4. Select the component you want to change and customize the colors or styles using the selectors to the right of the pane.

You can see the effects of your changes in the Preview pane.
