Please forgive my newbiness - but I'm just starting DotNet development, having developed in VB6 for many years, and having been used to working with a Rich Text Box, this is ALL very new to me. And there are so many properties/methods/classes, etc - It's hard for a beginner to know his way around.

Please, here are my questions:
1. In the RTB - there were properties like Selstart (where to put the cursor) and Seltext (either highlighted text or inserting new text wherever the cursor is located)
I can't seem to find properties to equal these - what might they be?

2. Is there a 'Show Line Numbers' property, or the like, to turn on line numbers?
I can find a whole lot of properties for line numbers - but not anything like that)

3. How to turn on outlining

Thanks

Hi Elmo,

Let me try and help get you started...

1) All selection related things can be accessed via:
editor.SelectedView.Selection

It has a ton of properties and methods like StartOffset, etc. SelectedText is a property off the "view" though.

2) Yes, editor.LineNumberMarginVisible.

3) You need a semantic parser plugged into your language definition that tells SyntaxEditor how to do outlining. We provide several samples for common languages in our sample project.

Thanks - one thing before bed -
editor.SelectedView.Selection.Length=(number)

tells me that property is readonly

what if I want to select a certain piece of text, giving it a certain length?

(thanks for being patient - I'm sure I'll have more as the days go on, but everyone's got to start somewhere!)

Hi Elmo,

No problem... That would be the editor.SelectedView.Selection.SelectRange method.

Thanks - after much mind-twisting, I finally got it to work - -

It's just so much different than what I've been used to working with, and then realizing SelectedRange was a method instead of a numerical ..... well - it's working.

Thanks again
