Support for .NET Core 3.0?

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Any plans for supporting .NET Core 3.0?

It should be released the first quarter 2019 with support for WinForms.

We are evaluating the migration of our solution (an enterprise C# codebase with around 1 million lines of code) and the Portability Analyzer from Microsoft detects just a few issues with the ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.Addons.DotNet.WinForms.dll assembly. The other two assemblies we are using (the control itself and the XML addon) are 100% portable.

The issues are with System.AppDomainSetup and System.AppDomain as they are not supported on Core.

Hi Raul,

Yes that is something we are working towards.  We are currently working on a major update to the WinForms SyntaxEditor to bring it in line with the API found in the newer WPF and UWP versions, along with adding new features in all platforms too.  This project is titled "vNext" on our blog.  We plan on that being .NET Core 3 compatible.

Hello Actipro,

and what about support for Ribbons in WPF? We are starting to write a new appliaction from scratch and want to use .NET Core 3. When will be the release of your vNext?

The WPF Ribbon and Shared Library all report 100% compatible already with .NET Core if you use Microsoft's Portability Analyzer.  I tested it with the current 2018.1 production releases.

Our 2019.1 WPF Controls will be out as soon as we wrap up the massive updates for SyntaxEditor on that platform.

Apologies for the delayed reply on this.  We wanted to update you that WinForms Controls v21.1 fully supports .NET Core 3.1 and .NET 5, has NuGet packages on, online documentation, and a GitHub repository with the full source of documentation and samples.

Please see this blog post for more details:

The WPF Controls v21.1 has also supported the same since earlier this year per this blog post:

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