yntaxEditor context menu option disabled

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

I'm adding an option to a WPF Syntax Editor context menu. But the option appears disabled even after set the IsEnable property to true.


MenuItem menuItem = new MenuItem();
menuItem .Header = "New option";
menuItem .Command = new EditActionCommand("New option", new OptionImplementation());
menuItem .CommandTarget = textBox;
menuItem .IsEnabled = true;

internal class OptionImplementation: EditActionBase
    public override bool CanExecute(IEditorView view)
        return true;

    public override void Execute(IEditorView view)
        // Implementation


I have another menu items added in the same way that are enabled. What I'm missing? Thank you.

Hi Daniel,

It's hard to say without debugging it.  Nothing stands out immediately as wrong there.  All our default menu items are built like this:

contextMenu.Items.Add(new MenuItem() { Header = SR.GetString(SRName.UIMenuItemUndoText), Command = EditorCommands.Undo, CommandTarget = this });

If you'd like us to look into it further, please make a new simple sample project that shows the issue and email it to our support address.  Reference this thread in your email and rename the .zip file extension of what you send so it doesn't get spam blocked.  Thanks!
