How to populate the ContextPrompt popup in the WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

Populate context prompt

The ContextPrompt popup can be populated by handling the EditControl's ContextPromptOpen event and using the AddPrompt method. Please refer to the code snippets to know more about it.


private void editControl1_ContextPromptOpen(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.ContextPromptUpdateEventArgs e)
    e.AddPrompt( "Find()", "Display the Find dialog" );
    e.AddPrompt( "Find(string searchText)", "Find occurences of the specified search text" );
    e.AddPrompt( "Find(string searchText, bool searchUp)", "Find occurences of the specified search text and search up if specified" );



Private Sub editControl1_ContextPromptOpen(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Edit.ContextPromptUpdateEventArgs)
    e.AddPrompt("Find()", "Display the Find dialog")
    e.AddPrompt("Find(string searchText)", "Find occurences of the specified search text")
    e.AddPrompt("Find(string searchText, bool searchUp)", "Find occurences of the specified search text and search up if specified")
End Sub
