Syntax highlighting example
Unclosed XML brackets in documentation comments (comments that start with at least 3 slashes) affect syntax highlighting of non-commented lines.
## Steps to reproduce
Insert the following line in a C# project:
The text editor highlights the lines after the comment differently. The highlighting returns to normal as soon as a "greater than" symbol appears in the code.
See also the attached image.
Deleting one of the slashes from the beginning of comment prevents the issue.
## Version information
Tested on Xamarin Studio 4.3.3 build 2 and 4.2.3 build 60.
Mac OS X 10.8.5
Mono 3.2.6 ((no/9b58377)
GTK+ 2.24.23 theme: Raleigh
Awesome! Thanks for the quick fix!
I have checked this issue on following builds:
Mac OS X 10.7.5
Xamarin Studio 4.2.4 (build 266)
I observed that when I apply "xml comment" on c# class and remove the closing of the commenting text editor doesn't highlights the lines after the comment differently.
This issue is working fine. Hence, I am closing this issue.
