Recipe 7.7 Setting Ant Editor Options


7.7.1 Problem

You want to customize the Ant editor's appearance.

7.7.2 Solution

Select Window Preferences Ant Editor, and choose from the items in that dialog.

7.7.3 Discussion

You have some control over the Ant editor's appearance using the Window Preferences Ant Editor dialog. In Eclipse 2.1.2, the Ant editor is really little more than a simple XML editor, but you can specify such items as the colors used in syntax highlighting, and whether the editor shows an overview ruler or line numbers , as shown in Figure 7-13.
