I'm migrating a big IDE from another control to syntaxEditor.

I've been making some tests, and I can't seem to get a keyword hilighted properly.

This is the core I'm using:

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim Language As New ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.SyntaxLanguage("BlitzMax", False) '= codigo.Document.Language
        Language.ExampleText = "This is a regular text message.\r\n" & _
        "INFO   : This is a sample info message.\r\n" & _
        "WARNING: This is a sample warning.\r\n" & _
        "ERROR  : This is a sample error.\r\n"
        Dim defaultHighlightingStyle As ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.HighlightingStyle = Language.HighlightingStyles("DefaultStyle")
        Dim HS As New HighlightingStyle("Module Keywords", "Module Keywords", Color.Black, Color.Aqua, False, False, True)
        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("InfoMessageDelimiterStyle", Nothing, Color.DarkGreen, Color.Empty, True, False, False))

        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("InfoMessageDefaultStyle", Nothing, Color.Green, Color.Empty, False, False, False))
        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("WarningMessageDelimiterStyle", Nothing, Color.DarkBlue, Color.Empty, True, False, False))
        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("WarningMessageDefaultStyle", Nothing, Color.Blue, Color.Empty, False, False, False))
        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("ErrorMessageDelimiterStyle", Nothing, Color.DarkRed, Color.Empty, True, False, False))
        Language.HighlightingStyles.Add(New HighlightingStyle("ErrorMessageDefaultStyle", Nothing, Color.Red, Color.Empty, False, False, False))

        '' Create an info message state
        Dim infoMessageLexicalState As LexicalState = New LexicalState("InfoMessageState")
        infoMessageLexicalState.DefaultTokenKey = "InfoMessageDefaultToken"
        infoMessageLexicalState.DefaultHighlightingStyle = Language.HighlightingStyles("InfoMessageDefaultStyle")
        infoMessageLexicalState.LexicalScopes.Add(New LexicalScope())
        infoMessageLexicalState.LexicalScopes(0).StartLexicalPatternGroup = _
            New LexicalPatternGroup(LexicalPatternType.Regex, "InfoMessageStartToken", _
            Language.HighlightingStyles("InfoMessageDelimiterStyle"), "^INFO \s* :")

        Dim LPG As New LexicalPatternGroup(LexicalPatternType.Explicit, "keyowrds2", HS)

        Dim lp As LexicalPattern = New LexicalPattern("Method")
        LPG.Add(New LexicalPattern("Info"))

        'LPG.CaseSensitivity = CaseSensitivity.AutoCorrect       'This makes nothing
        Dim I As Integer = infoMessageLexicalState.LexicalPatternGroups.Add(LPG)
        infoMessageLexicalState.LexicalPatternGroups(I).CaseSensitivity = CaseSensitivity.AutoCorrect

        infoMessageLexicalState.LexicalScopes(0).EndLexicalPatternGroup = _
            New LexicalPatternGroup(LexicalPatternType.Regex, "InfoMessageEndToken", _
            Language.HighlightingStyles("InfoMessageDelimiterStyle"), "{LineTerminatorMacro}")

        'Add Lexical States:
        Dim lexicalState As LexicalState = New LexicalState("DefaultState")
        lexicalState.DefaultHighlightingStyle = defaultHighlightingStyle
        Language.DefaultLexicalState = lexicalState

        Language.IsUpdating = False

        codigo.Document.Language = Language
        codigo.Document.AutoCaseCorrectEnabled = True
        codigo.Document.AutoCharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Normal


    End Sub
It is a code of a form called Fom1, that has a SyntaxEditor called Codigo.
I can create a Lexical state called infoMessageLexicalState, inside this there's a keyword called Method, Anyword that includes the letters of Method (example DoMethod) hilites the 'Method' part. anyway to solve this?

Hi Manel,

I just replied to the email you sent on this before the posting appeared.
Yes SyntaxEditor can handle all this fine, you just need to tweak several
things in your language definition. I'll look for your email reply.
