How to have only the bracket highlighting feature without the indentation guidelines in WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

Bracket highlighting

The bracket highlighting feature can be turned on by using the ShowIndentationGuidelines and OnlyHighlightMatchingBraces properties in conjunction as shown in code below.


this.editControl1.ShowIndentationGuidelines = true;
this.editControl1.OnlyHighlightMatchingBraces = true;



Me.editControl1.ShowIndentationGuidelines = True
Me.editControl1.OnlyHighlightMatchingBraces = True


When the OnlyHighlightMatchingBraces property is set to true, only the bracket highlighting occurs, and the indentation guidelines are not displayed.
