For example, like so:

highlight current line in gutter

Would it also be possible to allow customization of the highlight colour, something analogous to the RSyntaxTextArea.setCurrentLineHighlightColor() method, but for the Gutter?

I'm not interested in implementing this. RSTA used to behave this way, but I took it out purely because of personal preference. Pull requests are welcome if you are interested in adding this feature, but it would have to be the case that:

  • It was an option to toggle this setting on and off
  • It works appropriately when line wrap is enabled (and thus line numbers are not always evenly spaced)
  • It works properly with code folding taken into account

Unit tests would be a huge bonus as well.

Thank you. I shall take a shot at sending in a PR that implements this soon.
