Visualization – Line Highlighter

March 5th, 2011

As the name says, the Line Highlighter feature visually indicates the current line in the Visual Studio code editor. Such a visual line indication allows you to quickly find where the tiny flashing text caret is. This is especially valuable for large screen resolutions. This is what it looks like:

You are able to tweak the color and opacity of the line on the Editor | Painting | Line Highlighter options page in the Options Dialog:

The feature is not enabled by default. To quickly enable it – toggle the appropriate button on the DXCore Visualize toolbar or check the Enabled checkbox on the Line Highlighter options page:

The plug-in containing this feature is included into the CodeRush Shared Source solution. This means you can modify its source, according to your preference.
