How do I dynamically add configuration settings at runtime ?


The following code snippets shows how you could create custom Formats and define ConfigLexems that belong to those Formats.


// Create a format and set its attributes

ISnippetFormat formatMethod = this.editControl1.Language.Add("MethodName");

formatMethod.FontColor = Color.HotPink;

formatMethod.Font = new Font("Garamond",12);

// Create a lexem that belongs to this format

ConfigLexem configLex = new ConfigLexem("Method[0-9]*", "", FormatType.Custom, false);

configLex.IsBeginRegex = true;

configLex.FormatName = "MethodName";

// Add it to the current language's lexems collection




' Create a format and set its properties

Dim formatMethod As ISnippetFormat = Me.editControl1.Language.Add("MethodName")

formatMethod.FontColor = Color.HotPink

formatMethod.Font = New Font("Garamond", 12)

' Create a lexem that belongs to this format

Dim configLex As New ConfigLexem("Method[0-9]*", "", FormatType.Custom, False)

configLex.IsBeginRegex = True

configLex.FormatName = "MethodName"

' Add it to the current language's lexems collection



Please refer to the test application attached below that provides more information on this.
