4K Notepad++ UDL Add-on for Pine Script v4.0

FIRST OF ALL, THIS NOT AN INDICATOR! This is in XML format as a "utilitarian developer tool add-on" for Notepad++ editor for viewing Pine Script on 4K screens, but 4K isn't REQUIRED to use this.

For all Notepad++ enthusiasts out there utilizing Pine Script, I present a UDL(User Defined Language)... for Notepad++... for Pine Script v4.0... on 4K LCDs.

This is only for a dark background in Notepad++ editor, FYI. I would also like to mention, I used a 42" 4K LCD at this time of initial publication.

NOTICE: Please be sure to strip the "//" from this code on every line where the XML is commented with Pine Script comment operators(//) before saving to drive as an XML (*. xml ) file. This may be done easily within the Pine Editor using 'CTRL + /' after a click/drag selection of the bulk XML code. Pine Script commenting will then be stripped out of the XML following after the beginning/closing tags <NotepadPlus> and </NotepadPlus>.

The entire section below entitled "Notepad++ UDL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS" is not required for importation into Notepad++. These are just HOW TOs concerning export/configuration in Notepad++ in the XML comments <!-- -->, and will be ignored if it's included during the import procedure, no worries.

I will update this as PSv4.0 evolves and time provides itself to me. Any anomalies discovered, please respectfully contact me privately via TV chat to discuss any ideas/concerns.

With all that aforementioned said, I believe this will be very useful to Pine Script developers who use Notepad++ editor in tandem with Pine Editor, further unleashing the "Power of Pine" on this planet.

NOTICE: Copy pasting bandits who may be having nefarious thoughts, DO NOT attempt this, because this may violate Tradingview's terms, conditions and/or house rules. "WE" are always watching the TV community vigilantly for mischievous behaviors and actions that exploit well intended authors for the purpose of unscrupulously increasing brownie points in reputation scores. Hiding behind a "protected" wall may not protect you from investigation and account penalization by TV staff. Be respectful, and don't just throw a meaningless feature in there branding it as "your" gizmo. Fair enough? Alrighty then... I firmly believe in "innovating" future state-of-the-art indicators, and please contact me if you wish to do so.

The comments section below is solely just for commenting and other remarks, ideas, compliments, etc... regarding only this indicator, not others. When available time provides itself, I will consider your inquiries, thoughts, and concepts presented below in the comments section if you do have any questions or comments regarding this indicator. When my indicators achieve more prevalent use by TV members , I may implement more ideas when they present themselves as worthy additions. As always, "Like" it if you simply just like it with a proper thumbs up, and also return to my scripts list occasionally for additional postings. Have a profitable future everyone!

@Trading-Codes, This is more up to date superseding those, but I do have to incorporate Nov 2020 updates as far as I can tell... I'm working on a few projects currently.

This is SO SICK. I was using an older v3 notepad++ definition that didn't play nice with darker backgrounds. Now I don't need to keep turning my side monitor brightness down at night, this is such a huge aesthetic improvement my eyes thank you!

The only thing I wish is that the colors matched the more muted-matte look that the tradingview editor has, yours is a little 1980's neon-y but that's ok!

Thanks for the work. Looks great. I had done one myself a couple years ago, but must have lost track of where I saved the .xml file.

@Bonavest, thanks for the appreciation. I do intend to keep this as current as humanly possible with any changes to the Pine language. I posted it here for all to use, and it's a fitting place to never loose track of it's place.
