How can I selectively hide or show white space indicators in EditControl ?

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


You could selectively show or hide the white space indicators using the following sub properties - ShowSpaces, ShowTabs and ShowNewLines in WhiteSpaceIndicators property as shown in code below.


this.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowSpaces = true;

this.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowTabs = true;

this.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowNewLines = true;


Me.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowSpaces = True

Me.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowTabs = True

Me.editControl1.WhiteSpaceIndicators.ShowNewLines = True

Note that the ShowWhiteSpaces property needs to be set to true initially before you can hide or show individual white space indicators.
