Asked On January 30, 2012 06:17 PM UTC

I'm currently evaluating the Edit Control and have a few issues that I can't get working.

I need to invoke the context menu in accordance with the typed keyword. I get it to invoke on "." and on ":" but I need to invoke it on "::" and "."

The second problem is that I need to populate the context menu based on the keyword that was used

eg. Car.Engine.Start(int Key)
Car.Body.Suspension.Shock(string Make)
Car::Starter(bool ON)

I have been struggleling with this for a while now and can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm using the Intellisense from XML sample as basis for my script language and api. I have added the DropContextChoiceList="true" to the the operator "::" but it does not fire the editControl1_ContextChoiceBeforeOpen event but if I add it for ":" then it works as expected. Any ideas?
