Can I embed a user control within a syntax editor's text?

Is it possible to embed user controls within the syntax editor? Perhaps at a particular line number or between lines? If not, is there a way to distribute a document across multiple syntax editors so that I can place my custom user controls between the editors themselves?

Thanks,

Hi Craig,

Yes you can embed controls in via adornments (one of the QuickStarts shows a sample).  However we don't have a mechanism to render adornments between lines at this time.  You can only render behind the editing surface or "intra-text" (between text characters).

The SyntaxEditor objects will edit whatever document text you give them, but cannot edit different specific portions of the same document within multiple SyntaxEditor instances.

You'd probably want to split up the real document's parts into separate SyntaxEditor documents to do your second idea.
