How can I select specific text in some line

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 12 years ago by Dan Oren - Software Developer, Watchfire

I have an http response.
I want to parse it manually in the code without defining a new language and to select the headers in Orange with bold font and the values in green. Also I would like to highlight some text in yellow and italic font (some words, not full lines). All these without defining a language but by something like we have in the RichTextBox that allows us to do this.

HTTP/1.1 302 Found

How can I do it ?
I understood that I can use Span idicators for it but I dont know how to use it.
Could someone supply me a piece of code that show hwo to do it?

Hi Dan,

SyntaxEditor is not designed for WYSIWYG display like a RichTextBox. SyntaxEditor is designed to highlight a document based on patterns of text.

While you can achieve this sort of highlighting with span indicators, the more span indicators you use, the slower the display will become. Granted you probably won't see any perf difference until you add hundreds and hundreds of indicators. So if you are only doing small snippets then this might work ok.

Please look at the indicators QuickStart in the v4.0 sample project. That shows how to add span indicators and even shows how to make a custom one.
