How to get a split view that is not the active view

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

I have a custom margin that implements breakpoint and bookmark glyphs that need to be updated as the document is scrolled vertically, in my code I use the current snapshot property from a view to accomplish this and the functionality works fine until the user adds multiple splits resulting in multiple views.

If the user adds a 4 way split (4 views) and mouse overs a view I need to get that view. Note that the view the mouse is over is not focused therefore that view is not the active view so I can not make a call to the Syntax Editor Activeview Placement property and have it return correctly as it defaults to a view that had focus last or the Default view if there is no focus.

I was wondering if there was a way for me to accomplish what I need that I might have missed from your help and project examples?

Hi Mick,

The hit testing features of SyntaxEditor will give you that sort of info (the containing view).  We have docs on that and a QuickStart that shows it as well.  Check those out, especially the sample since it's close to what you want.

Thanks for the information, I was looking at hooking up the mouse enter event so this confirms I was going in the right direction, thanks!
