I want to create a new environment to transform this:

  \caption{some caption}
My code here

into this:

\begin{mycode}{language}{some caption}{code:label}
My code here

I've tried the code from Using minted to define a new environment without success.


This is what I've tried:

  \setkeys{minted@opt}{linenos,fontfamily=courier, fontsize=\scriptsize, xleftmargin=21pt}
    % \centering

I removed the {listings} tag since it doesn't seem like you're using the listings package. Would you be able to post what you've tried? – Werner Jan 26 '12 at 17:33
Sorry, my bad. I'm really not using the listing package I'm using the floated listings, like the item 4 of the minted documentation‌​. I'll edit and add what I've tried. – Hugo Maia Vieira Jan 27 '12 at 1:56

  \setkeys{minted@opt}{frame=single}% from fancyvrb
  \begin{figure}[htp]%% default placing

\begin{mycode}{latex}{some caption}{code:label}
My \code here

This worked like a charm. I just replace the figure by listing and remove the \centering. Thanks @Hebert. I didn't knew \makeatletter and \makeatother, but now I do. The \minted@proglang thing I can't get yet. – Hugo Maia Vieira Jan 27 '12 at 2:26
And I add an \floatstyle{ruled} at minted.sty. Exist an elegant way to do that? – Hugo Maia Vieira Jan 27 '12 at 2:55
look at the package floatrow how floating objects can be configured – Herbert Jan 27 '12 at 8:05
