How to get the text and font in the Indicator DrawMarks

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 19 years ago by shark92651
I'm sure I am just overlooking something obvious here but I want a very simple SpanIndicator that will draw a box around some text, fill the background color, and then draw the text. I cannot find a way to get a reference to the Font property of the SyntaxEditor.

Here is how I am getting the text (is this the best way?):

protected override void DrawMarks(Graphics g, Rectangle Bounds)
string text = this.Document.Text.Substring(this.Offset, this.Length);

We draw the text for you. You just override the GetHighlightingStyle and return a HighlightingStyle that gives the fore and background colors of the text. Then in DrawMarks, draw the box around the bounds.
