Building a config programatically (version 3)

Hi, I need to build my language programatically and am having problems associating the Format with my new Lexem. I am adding my format via ConfigLanguage.Add Setting my lexem type to Custom and setting my lexem formatName to the name of my format. At runtime I get the null reference exception in a call to ConfigLexem.get_Format(); I cannot set the format directly as the Format property is read-only. Please can you send me a simple code fragment to demonstrate how to do this as I am unable to find anything in your documentation (the sample app hides the model creation away). Thanks in advance. Leon

This is the code and stack trace: Format myFormat = new Format("MyFormat", Color.Green, Color.Yellow, Color.Aqua, new Font("Tahoma", 8)); language.Add(myFormat); ConfigLexem myLexem = new ConfigLexem("~", "", FormatType.Custom, false); myLexem.FormatName = myFormat.Name; language.Lexems.Add(myLexem); ************** Exception Text ************** System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Implementation.Config.ConfigLexem.get_Format() at Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Implementation.Parser.RenderedLine.Measure(Single maxSize) at Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Implementation.Parser.RenderableLexemParser.GraphicalToVirtual(Point point) at Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.StreamEditControl.UpdateToolTip(Object sender, UpdateTooltipEventArgs e) at Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.Dialogs.ToolTipEx.m_timer_Tick(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Timer.OnTick(EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Timer.DebuggableCallback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr idEvent, IntPtr dwTime)
