Hello, I'm trying to make some sort of code editor to write and edit code on runtime and I want to have highlights on certain keywords.

Now, I know that the textEdit node have built-in syntax highlight and other code related functionalities but, I want to highlight custom keywords, since this code editor would have a fake scripting language with custom keywords.

Now my question is, can I somehow edit the built-in highlighting feature of textEdit or, maybe easier, highlight certain words on textEdit or text labels by code?

Thank you in advance!
