How do I create ConfigLexem for Comment statement programmatically?

 

The configuration settings for custom comments can be created as outlined in the steps below.

1. Create a ISnippetFormat for the custom comment.

2. Create a ConfigLexem associated with the comment.

3. Add the ConfigLexem to the EditControl’s Language.Lexems collection.

4. Add the ConfigLexems which are used as sub-lexems to the parent ConfigLexem.SubLexems collection.

5. Create two separate Split entries for the lexems used for opening and closing the comments, .i.e., ‘/*’ and ‘*/’.

C#

// Multi-character splits should be added to make tokenizer read them as a single word.

currentConfigLanguage.Splits.Add( "/*" );

currentConfigLanguage.Splits.Add( "*/" );

ConfigLexem commentLexem = new ConfigLexem();

commentLexem.BeginBlock = "/*";

commentLexem.EndBlock = "*/";

commentLexem.Type = FormatType.Custom;

commentLexem.FormatName = "Comment";

commentLexem.OnlyLocalSublexems = true;

commentLexem.IsComplex = true;

commentLexem.IsCollapsable = true;

commentLexem.CollapseName = "/*...*/";

ConfigLexem commentSubLexem = new ConfigLexem();

commentSubLexem.BeginBlock ="\\n";// or @"\n"

commentSubLexem.IsBeginRegex = true;

commentSubLexem.Type = FormatType.Custom;

commentSubLexem.FormatName = "Comment";

commentSubLexem.ParentConfig = commentLexem;

commentLexem.SubLexems.Add(commentSubLexem);

// Configuration lexems can not be placed into two or more containers

currentConfigLanguage.Lexems.Add(commentLexem);

currentConfigLanguage.ResetCaches();

// Configuration should be applied just once, and just after it is completely created.

this.editControl1.ApplyConfiguration(currentConfigLanguage);

VB

' Multi-character splits should be added to make tokenizer read them as a single word.

currentConfigLanguage.Splits.Add("/*")

currentConfigLanguage.Splits.Add("*/")

Dim commentLexem As ConfigLexem = New ConfigLexem()

commentLexem.BeginBlock = "/*"

commentLexem.EndBlock = "*/"

commentLexem.Type = FormatType.Custom

commentLexem.FormatName = "Comment"

commentLexem.OnlyLocalSublexems = True

commentLexem.IsComplex = True

commentLexem.IsCollapsable = True

commentLexem.CollapseName = "/*...*/"

Dim commentSubLexem As ConfigLexem = New ConfigLexem()

commentSubLexem.BeginBlock ="\n" ' or @"\n"

commentSubLexem.IsBeginRegex = True

commentSubLexem.Type = FormatType.Custom

commentSubLexem.FormatName = "Comment"

commentSubLexem.ParentConfig = commentLexem

commentLexem.SubLexems.Add(commentSubLexem)

' Configuration lexems can not be placed into two or more containers

currentConfigLanguage.Lexems.Add(commentLexem)

currentConfigLanguage.ResetCaches()

' Configuration should be applied just once, and just after it is completely created.

Me.editControl1.ApplyConfiguration(currentConfigLanguage)
