I am trying to customize ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.SyntaxEditor for dark skin in our app.

I cannot find the proper way to do it. Setting SyntaxEditor.BackColor property does not work. Setting Document.Language.BackColor only changes back color of text lines, while the rest of text area stays white.

I tried to use Renderer property and set my own Renderer there, but the only color that seem to work is SelectionFocusedBackColor.

Specifying everything else including TextAreaBackColor does not affect the control presentation.


Am I doing things wrong? Please suggest the solution.

Hi Alexei,

If you run our SDI Editor demo and on the right choose the "Rendere" radio button, you can see all the colors for UI elements in the editor are accessible and editable via that renderer.  You can modify the entire look of the editor from that, other than the actual text highlighting styles, which you do from the language's highlighting styles.
