Is there a way to have the editor automatically capitalize the keys words as VS 2005 IDE does in VB.NET?

Hi Perry,

It is possible to automatically capitalize the key words using the OnCustomDraw event. I have attached a sample that illustrates this. Let me know if this meets your requirements.

Thank you for your patience.

Interesting. This capitalizes the first character only. I was looking more for having the caps looks like the declaration in the config file.
For example my config file has this line:

So I expect if I type "isnot" it will convert to "IsNot". In VB.NET key words are not always capitalized with first letter only.

Anyway you example gave me an idea. I could parse the config file in the OnCustomDraw and replace the key word with the one from the config file myself. A lot of headache when I see no reason why the control shouldn't do this by default. Users can then use the config file to control this.

I want to inherit from EditControl so that I can put this caps feature in a custom control rather than in an event. This is because I am using the edit control in many areas and don't want to maintain the event in all places. However I don't see on override "OnCustomDraw". Only the event "OnCustomDraw". Is it called something else? If not what method should I override?

Thanks
Perry

Hi Perry,

It is possible to capitalize like the declaration in the configuration file using the OnCustomDraw event. It is also possible to use this feature in several EditControl's. I have attached a sample that illustrates this. Let me know if this meets your requirements.

Thank you for your patience.
