Comment and UnComment XML

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Hi all

I try to get the syntax editor to run.
At the moment I'm having trouble getting XML commenting to run.
One or more lines of XML should be commented or uncommented.


Here is my code


 var xmlLanguage = new XmlSyntaxLanguage();
      syntaxEditor.Document.Language = xmlLanguage;

      //  var stream = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream("XTOOLZ.X_Edit.Editor.Lexers.ActiproSoftware.XML.xml");
      //  syntaxEditor.Document.LoadLanguageFromXml(stream, 0);
      //catch (Exception e)
      //  Console.WriteLine(e);



      syntaxEditor.Document.Outlining.Mode = OutliningMode.Automatic;
      syntaxEditor.Document.SemanticParsingEnabled = true;
      syntaxEditor.Document.LexicalParsingEnabled = true;
      syntaxEditor.Document.LineModificationMarkingEnabled = true;

      _schemaResolver = new XmlSchemaResolver();
      syntaxEditor.Document.LanguageData = _schemaResolver;

 The Comment/Uncomment is done like that



 The good thing, no error occures - the bad, the code doesn't comment the xml :-/

Any Help is welcome !

Hi Peter,

I'm sorry but the XML language in WinForms doesn't currently support commenting/uncommenting.  The newer WPF version's XML language does.  We are currently working on trying to unify the codebases of SyntaxEditor across platforms to be like the WPF version so that everything will have the same feature set.  Please see our blog for details as this project is code-named "SyntaxEditor vNext".  If we can get the WinForms version ported using that framework, then it will end up with the same API and features as what is in the WPF version.

Anyhow for now in the current WinForms SyntaxEditor, you'd need to write custom code to add the <!-- and --> around the selection.

Is there a release date available for the Winform Syntaxeditor on the new Codebase?

Sorry we're not anywhere close to a release of vNext yet, so we can't really estimate when it will be ready for testing.  We'll continue posting progress in the blog though so please monitor that for updates.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
