How to preload the WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl) to use a certain configuration for syntax highlighting?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

configuration for syntax highlighting

By default, the SyntaxEditor (EditControl) detects the file extension of the document loaded and then applies the appropriate

configuration settings for syntax highlighting the text in the document. But in cases where there is no extension (like in

Streams), the SyntaxEditor (EditControl) uses the default configuration settings.


To preload a particular configuration setting such that syntax highlighting will be done for text which is not saved (i.e.,

has no file extension) or being read from a stream, you should explicitly specify the Configurator to open a certain

configuration file as shown in the test application attached. This shows how you could pre-load the EditControl to use

XML syntax highlighting configuration settings.

I did not find this informative since it references an attached test application. There is no attached anything. Reply
