Question

Change Line Editor Background ReadOnly

Posted 3 years ago by Avatar Jonathan Reis
Is it possible to change "SyntaxEditorBackgroundReadOnlyBrushKey" without resorting the themes? I just want to change this one color.

Thanks.

Hi Jonathan,

Sorry but for now you must set that brush override in your Application.Resources to change it.

Could you provide more details as to how to accomplish this? Maybe, which Brush it is?

Hello,

You would need to place a line, such as this, in your application resources in XAML:
<SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static themes:SyntaxEditorCommonDictionary.SyntaxEditorBackgroundReadOnlyBrushKey}" Color="Red" />
The themes xmlns is defined as:
xmlns:themes="http://schemas.actiprosoftware.com/winfx/xaml/themes"
Please let us know if you have further questions.

When I release this to a machine other than my development machine it cannot find this theme. How do I redistribute these themes?

Perhaps you aren't deploying all the assemblies you need? Make sure to include our Shared assembly in addition to the SyntaxEditor ones.

Hello,

I feel that this should be made into a property that can be set at run-time. Currently if our document is opened and it is read-only, we need to look up the default background color of the vs editor and update the background color.
