I hope that this type of post is appropriate…
We are prototyping a new application in C# which and have already integrated Essential Edit. I am looking for someone who is very familiar with Essential Edit in a C# environment. If you are interested, you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Essential Edit is being used to edit a scripting language that very closely related to Microsoft’s TSQL which has a lot in common with SQL. It basically, looks something like
We also have a proprietary way of specifying enumerations:
Phase One would involve setting up the XML file to provide syntax highlighting. The grammar for our scripting language is in ANTLR files. I assume that it would make sense to use the SQL XML configuration file provided by Syncfusion as a starting point.
Phase Two would involve implementation of context choice as follows:
*Parameters: a sorted list (name and type) would be provided for potential parameter choices. If they select one, the parameter’s type should be automatically set.
*Variables in the body: match to a parameter or a local variable
*Enumerations: an appropriate sorted list would be provided for each of the three levels
*Key words: I would have thought that the edit control would automatically offer context choices for key words, but it doesn’t appear to.
Phase Three: context tooltip for parameters, enumerations and selected key words. Potentially some context prompts.
