How do I use regular expressions to specify syntax highlighting in an EditControl ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The syntax highlighting feature in our EditControl can be enabled by assigning the appropriate configuration file to the EditControl’s SettingFile property. The configuration file supports the use of regular expressions to specify the various syntactic groups to be highlighted. For example, if you wish to highlight Registers of the type Rx, Rx.y etc. where x is any numerical and y is any alphanumerical, you could specify it as follows.

Register=REGEX[\bR\d*\b] Register=REGEX[\bR\d*.\d*\b] Register=REGEX[\bR\d*.*\b]
