Hello,

Can SyntaxEditor be used within an MFC-based application?

Thanks

Hi Ed,

SyntaxEditor is written in .NET so if you are able to host .NET controls in MFC then it might work. I know we do have several customers running managed C++ who use SyntaxEditor.

This is what I'm not sure about. Does anyone know if you can host .NET controls in MFC? If someone from Actipro can verify this, I'd really appreciate it.

That is very encouraging ;-) I really like the look of SyntaxEditor, and I really hope I can use it!

Unfortunately we're C#/VB guys and don't know MFC. I think I have read something that said there was a way to do it but Microsoft recommended against it for some reason and said it would be better to use ActiveX controls.

If you google C# controls and MFC I'm sure you'll find a lot of posts on the topic that might help.

Okay, fair enough.

Assuming I could get it to work in an MFC application, the .NET Runtime would still be required to be installed on all the target machines, correct?

Yes that is correct.
