How to enable Javascript highlighting code in Eclipse 3.4?

Hi,

 

I have recently change my PC and reinstalled the development tools. I did it with Eclipse 3.4, the salesforce plugin and I found that Apexcode and visualforce code are colored, but javascript code (embeded in VF code) is not.

 

Does anybody know how to enable that in my Eclipse?

 

Regards,

 

Wilmer

I was able to get the highlighting back.  Please see this thread:  http://community.salesforce.com/sforce/board/message?board.id=apex&message.id=19199&jump=true

I also need help with this.  I recently upgraded to Eclipse 3.4 and Force.com IDE 16.0.  Javascript code is no longer highlighted and there is no autocomplete.  This has always worked with previous versions of Eclipse and the Force.com IDE.  How can I get this functionality back?  Is there something I have to enable?

Hi eric,

 

I followed your directions and it worked.

 

I just went to the Menu option:

Help > Software Updates... > Available Software

 

And looked for and Installed the following packages:

Ganymede Update Site > Javascript Developer Tools

Ganymede Update Site > Web Developer Tools

 

After that, reset Eclipse, and I got the Javascript code highlight as I needed.

 

Thanks,
