How to configure text in WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl) through configuration dialog window?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

Show configuration dialog

In Edit control, at runtime Syntax highlighting functionality can be customized by using class named “ConfigurationDialog” and Interface named “IConfig”.


Following code examples demonstrates the same.


IConfigLanguage activeLang = this.editControl1.Parser.Formats as IConfigLanguage;
ConfigurationDialog editConfig = new ConfigurationDialog(this.editControl1.Configurator, activeLang);
//Display the EditControl configuration dialog
if (editConfig.ShowDialog(this) == DialogResult.OK && activeLang != null)
    IConfigLanguage newLang = editConfig.Configurator.KnownLanguageNames.Contains(activeLang.Language)?
editConfig.Configurator[activeLang.Language]: editConfig.Configurator.DefaultLanguage;
    if (newLang != null)
          this.editControl1.Configurator = editConfig.Configurator;



Dim activeLang As IConfigLanguage = TryCast(Me.editControl1.Parser.Formats, IConfigLanguage)
Dim editConfig As New ConfigurationDialog(Me.editControl1.Configurator, activeLang)
'Display the EditControl configuration dialog
If editConfig.ShowDialog(Me) = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK AndAlso activeLang IsNot Nothing Then
 Dim newLang As IConfigLanguage = If (editConfig.Configurator.KnownLanguageNames.Contains(activeLang.Language), editConfig.Configurator(activeLang.Language), editConfig.Configurator.DefaultLanguage)
 If newLang IsNot Nothing Then
  Me.editControl1.Configurator = editConfig.Configurator
 End If
End If
