Using syntaxeditor in a quick info provider for a collapsed region

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

i want to use syntax highlighting in the tooltip launched for e.g. collapsed regions.

Is it possible to use a syntaxeditor in a quick info provider for a collapsed region?

Till now i used a headeredcontrolcontrol with a own template, probably copied from your examples a long time ago:)

Hi Martin,

Sorry but at the moment, it will only return plain text for the syntax highlighting.  The reason behind that is that certain themes have different colored tooltip backgrounds that might not match the background of the editor itself.  For instance, one might be light and the other dark.  Using the default syntax highlighting in that scenario would make the text unreadable.

This is something we'd like to eventually add if we can solve the problem of making sure it's all readable.  Do you have any thoughts on handling that sort of scenario?
