RunJavascript action should have syntax highlighting

On our radar

It's kinda frustrating working without syntax highlighting. The action is error prone.

Have you checked it in version 10? At least the JavaScript node and scripts in mobile apps have syntax highlighting.

I tried to test it on Outsystems 10, but I got a weird error when trying to use my personal environment there. I posted the error in the forum. Maybe you can help.

Hello again Mr. Kilian.

I resolved my issue in Outsystems 10 so I was able to test the RunJavascript Action from the HTTPRequestHandler extension. 

It behaves exactly the same as in Outsystems 9. The action just receive text. This is super error prone. I often find myself writing Javascript in Notepadd++ and then copy paste it on the RunJavascript action. A platform this expensive should at least have syntax highlighting for commonly used actions where you actually code.
