I was using the GoToPreviousBracket() and GoToNextBracket() methods in a project in version 1.0 of the Syntax Editor.
I see that it is not available ( or at least I cannot find it ).
Is there a new way to do this, or a better way?

I have a need to move the cursor position to a StartTagStartToken and EndTagEndToken based on a character position.

More specifically, I have an XML document, and whereever the user clicks I want the ability to get the entire text of the Node. Basically I used to use GoToPrevious, and then GoToNext and I could get it.

Just wondering if there is another way.

Thanks

Since bracket highlighting was redesigned in 2.0 to be more robust, the BracketSet object is no longer used. Both the GoToPreviousBracket() and GoToNextBracket() methods took a BracketSet parameter so they are no longer valid.

The way to do what you want in 2.0 is to get a TextStream at the current caret offset. Then iterate through the Tokens backwards and look for a Token.Key with the start delimiter you want. Once found, iterate forwards through the Tokens until the end delimiter is found.

Maybe in the future we can add a couple goto Token methods to search forwards or backwards for a particular Token key to make that process easier.

Ok, good enough. I knew that was an option, just didn't know if it was the best one.
Thanks for the answer.

Just implemented overloads for GoToNextToken and GoToPreviousToken that accept a key. It will search for tokens with the specified key. This will be in the next release.
