Cursor in Syntax editor

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Hi all,
Has anybody noticed that the cursor in editor is a little BOLDer than normal windows widgets? Can I make it like window standard cursor(NOT BOLD).
Thanks in advance.

You could do

Caret.InsertWidth = 1;

[update]: personally, after trying both, I prefer the width 2 caret, which I find easier to see, especially if a region is selected.

Hi Benjamin,
Thanks for your reply.
I agree with you that bold cursor will help customer find caret easily. But...
There are some widdgets used Syntax Editor and some not in my project. I just want to get a consistent UI. :)

Yes Benjamin noted the correct property to change if you don't like it. In version 4.0 we are also giving more options for controlling caret styles.
