I’ve been doing ``` manually as the one above seems to only be for non-code blocks

If X=Y Then
End If

Used the </> on each line.

dim a as string
test

edit: that’s a single tick, no colour

you can’t change the toolbar button that it insert [ CODE ] & [ /CODE ] ?

dim a as string

that’s a triple ``` but you can’t put them on the same line as code
yes, very jank

Yeah, the markdown way is with
```Xojo

To do it with the toolbar, you have to hit the code button for each line.

Markdown versus bbcode.

dim a as string
a = "1"
that doesnt work for me, I just end up with multiple lines with no colour

i think its better if it add [ code ] around a selection or just add a start & end tag and we can insert text from clipboard.

Now testing from Desktop.
Inline code with backticks
`Inline code` with backticks

```# code block
print '3 backticks or'
print 'indent 4 spaces'```
····# code block
····print '3 backticks or'
····print 'indent 4 spaces'

It looks like the button on the toolbar is only going to give you inline code tags. For anything more, you need to use Markdown or HTML (though I don’t see any syntax highlighting with HTML).

HTML:
Uses a CODE tag
If X = 0 Then

BBCode:

Uses a CODE BBCode tag. Doesn't appear to like multiline? If X = 0 Then

Multiple rendering types are enabled.

The interesting thing is, on my iOS Chrome, hitting the </> button inserts the four-space preformatted formatting for code, which is why mine in this post looked correct.
