Does this control support the full spectrum of HTML tags? I'm playing with the eval version and <ul> and <li> tags don't render correctly. Is there a list of what is supported so we can guage the value of purchasing UIStudio?

Thanks,
B.

Hi Brian,

Actually MarkupLabel is just part of our WinUICore framework that is available for use with any of our products that use WinUICore. It's not considered a control in UIStudio, but rather a little hidden control in our supporting framework that any licensed customers of our products can use.

It only supports a small subset of HTML. The supported tags are listed in SyntaxEditor's documentation topic "IntelliPrompt Formatting Guide".

I'll include the important info here:

Formatting Tags

The markup text is specified using lowercase HTML-like formatting tags. All tags must be well-formed must be in XML-compliant syntax.

These tags are supported:

b - Renders the enclosed text in a bold face.
br - Adds a line break.
em - Renders the enclosed text using emphasis. The default style renders in italics.
i - Renders the enclosed text in an italic style.
span - Changes the formatting of the enclosed text. This tag should be used with the style attribute to specify formatting such as color, font, etc.
strong - Renders the enclosed text using a strong face. The default style renders in bold face.
u - Renders the enclosed text with an underline.

The style Attribute

The style attribute can be applied to any tag listed above. It accepts a subset of CSS (cascading style sheets) properites as input.

The supported properties are:

background-color - The background color of the text. This value can be specified using HTML format (e.g. #RRGGBB) or by referencing standard web colors by name (e.g. Red).
color - The foreground color of the text. This value can be specified using HTML format (e.g. #RRGGBB) or by referencing standard web colors by name (e.g. Red).
font-family - The font family of the text. This can be any valid font family name (e.g. Tahoma).
font-size - The font size of the text. This is currently always specified in points (e.g. 10pt).
font-weight - The font weight, or boldness, of the text. These values map to a normal font: normal, lighter, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500. These values map to a bold font: bold, bolder, 600, 700, 800, 900.
font-style - The font style of the text. The values italic and oblique map to an italic font. The value normal map to a normal font.
text-decoration - The decoration for the text. The value none uses no decoration. The value underline draws a line under the text. The value line-through draws a line through the middle of the text (strike-through).
