Set Line Position in XAML

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Posted 4 years ago by Matthew Salomon

I would like to implement a go to line feature in my WPF SyntaxEditor and need a way to bind the line/caret position to a property in my ViewModel. I've seen ways to set the caret position in the code behind(ActiveView.Selection.CaretPosition) but I would like to keep the logic of this interaction outside of the view.

Hi Matthew,

I'm sorry but since the property is nested deep in non-dependency objects, there isn't a way to directly two-way bind a VM to it.

You could handle the SyntaxEditor.ActiveViewChanged and ViewSelectionChanged events in your view and then call a NotifyCaretPositionChanged method on your VM from those to update its CaretPosition property.  And perhaps in your VM add an event that is raised when the VM's CaretPosition changes, that the view can watch and update the ActiveView.Selection.CaretPosition property with.
