# Re: [NTG-context] before= and after= for \setuphighlight

Hi,

I'm looking for something like \definehighlight which I can use to
markup various things in inline body text. I want different
environments to be able to have their own setups to configure how
these appear, just as \setuphighlight would provide.

However there's one situation which I can't think how to handle; I'd
like to have a setup append and prepend some text, just like before=
and after= for various other setups. If \setuphighlight had before=
and after=, this would suit me perfectly. But it doesn't.

Is there something similar to \setuphighlight which has before= and after=?
Or any other ideas?



we have before/after in \definestartstop so let's add left/right there for the inline variant

you can put this in cont-new.mkiv:

\unprotect

\unexpanded\def\syst_startstop_indeed#1%
{\groupedcommand
{\def\currentstartstop{#1}%

\startstopparameter\c!commands % better: setups so that will show op soon
      \dostarttagged\t!construct\currentstartstop
\usestartstopstyleandcolor\c!style\c!color
\startstopparameter\c!left}
{\def\currentstartstop{#1}% safeguard, nto really needed
\startstopparameter\c!right
\dostoptagged
\startstopparameter\c!inbetween}}

\protect

\starttext

\definestartstop[foo][style=bold,left=(,right=)]
\definestartstop[bar][style=italic,left=(,right=)]

test \foo{test \bar{x} test} test

\stoptext
