Hello, Right now I''m using the legacy edit control, but I would like to switch. I need to use SQL in my edit control. I know for VB I can use: editControl1.ResetColoring(this.editControl1.Configurator.GetLanguage("vb")); Is there one for SQL? Or how can I get syntax highlighting for SQL? Thanks for any help. Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick, Currently, the EditControl (the new v3.0 Edit) has built-in syntax highlighting support for Pascal, HTML, VB.NET, XML, and C#. We intend to add support for other common languages like C++, Java, JScript, SQL, PL/SQL, VB.NET, IDL, MFC, and VBScript in near future (feature request# 90). The configuration file used for syntax highlighting is XML based and can be easily created as illustrated in the Custom Configuration File Demo sample in the folder ....\Essential Studio\\Windows\Edit.Windows\Samples\CustomConfigFileDemo. The Edit users guide also provides detailed information on creating custom configuration files. Please refer to the section Configuration Settings >> Creating a Custom Language Configuration File. You might want to take a look at the configuration file used in the KeywordFormattingDemo sample in the directory ....\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Edit.Windows\Samples\KeywordFormattingDemo for this purpose. It uses a configuration file that supports a SQL like language. Let me know if you need me any other information. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Hi Nick, The EditControl now offers in-built syntax highlighting configuration settings for SQL and PL/SQL and you could load these settings into EditControl as shown below : /* Using the KnownLanguages enumerator */ this.editControl1.ApplyConfiguration(KnownLanguages.SQL); Let me know if you need any other information. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Hi Guru, I too need to use the SQL syntax configuration. I am running the v3.3 Release Candidate but I do not see this as a property. Can you give me further information please... Steve Graddy MCP, MCAD.Net Orgbrat Consulting

Hi Steve, The new API - ApplyConfiguration did not make it into v3.3 RC due the code freeze. Please open a Direct-Trac incident in this regard, and I will update you with the download information for our latest internal build containing this feature. I have also attached a copy of the latest Essential Edit Users Guide here. We appreciate your cooperation, and thanks for your continued interest in Syncfusion products.. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
