comment Why does the syntax highlighter color a local symbol red inside DynamicModule?
@Nasser You seem to be expecting a lot from the syntax highlighter... I can understand your gripe if the kernel leaked the variables between the scopes, but it doesn't. The FE uses what best knowledge it has of mma's syntax, the current scope, the variables defined (previously and now) and does a pretty good job. It is more likely that someone new might do this unknowingly and be confused that the x inside is not what they defined first, so mma gives a warning. Note that it is only a warning, not an actual error, so I don't see what the problem is. As Rojo said, disable it if you don't like it

comment Why does the syntax highlighter color a local symbol red inside DynamicModule?
Your example is needlessly complicated and makes it harder to convey the point... here's a simple one: DynamicModule[{x = 1}, Module[{x}, x = 2] ];

comment Why does the syntax highlighter color a local symbol red inside DynamicModule?
@Nasser There are several examples of the highlighter showing something as red when it's not really an error. I'm also not surprised that it can't know well in advance that this won't lead to an error, so better safe than sorry. The only true answer to your question is to treat it as a warning and proceed if you know what you're doing.

comment how to interactively select points inside certain region in a plot
Please see the duplicate question above. The answers there solve this exact problem. As a side note, you could also use Graphics`Mesh`InPolygonQ (with the same syntax). I mentioned this in a comment under my answer

comment Print out all functions in Mathematica
You can also do this without the HelpLookup function. Simply replace Column@makeSearchable@# with Column[Hyperlink[#, "paclet:ref/" <> #] & /@ #]. I like this because clicking a different links does not launch a new doc window (default doc center behaviour) and you can always open a new window with rt.click

comment Define a second name for a function
Luckily, this very same question was asked just a couple of days ago and has a very nice answer that would be perfect for your case :) Let me know if it isn't (and why) and we can reopen this one with the specific problem.
