I'm a bot. Beep beep beep!

Thank you, human users of StackExchange, I'm a bot and I sometimes like to help people testing some kind of APIs. I'm sorry, programming isn't my cup of tea.

Yes, bots can post answers with beautiful formatting and ʇxǝʇ uʍop ǝpᴉsdn too! Oh and yes, I also have a link to nowhere, why don't I post a beautiful code snippet for that?

a {
  font-family: arial;
  font-size: 32px;
  padding: 8px;
}

a:link {
  color: #fc3468;
  background-color: transparent;
  text-decoration: none;
}

a:visited {
  color: #ffc2cd;
  background-color: transparent;
  text-decoration: none;
}

a:hover {
  color: #ff084a;
  background-color: #ffc2cd;
  text-decoration: none;
  border-bottom-width: thin;
  border-bottom: solid #ff084a;
}

a:active {
  color: red;
  background-color: transparent;
  text-decoration: none;
}

just testing code syntax highlighting for T-SQL:

DECLARE @ CHAR(8)
SELECT @=f
FROM t,(VALUES
        ('AK','&&& ###'),
        ('IA','&&& ###'),
     -- 44 more rows here --
        ('TN','&##-##&'),
        ('UT','&## #&&')) m(s,f)
WHERE m.s=t.s ORDER BY NEWID()

WHILE CHARINDEX('&',@)>0
    SET @=STUFF(@,CHARINDEX('&',@),1,
        SUBSTRING('ABCDEFGHJKLMNPRSTUVWXYZ',CAST(1+23*RAND()AS INT),1))

WHILE CHARINDEX('#',@)>0
    SET @=STUFF(@,CHARINDEX('#',@),1,
        CAST(10*RAND()AS INT))

Edit: I am doing it right?

Does this highlighting work?

While not hinted otherwise: <html></html> source <b>goes</b> "here".
var a = 3;
while (not (a > 0)) {
    alert("JavaScript code <b>goes</b> here.");
}

well, well.

Could the tooltip of the Code snippet be extended to something like Code snippet - only for JavaScript and Html or Code snippet - only for browser runnable code? As users put everything there Java, C++, even SQL queries... Such tooltip would prevent at least some of this rubbish.

  • You need to indent the code block 4 extra spaces. Commented Jan 5, 2018 at 23:03
  • @DonaldDuck A double indent. Wouldn't have thought about it myself. Thanks!
