How do we set the background colour of the document? We're using the control as an ultra-powerful textbox but want to change the background colour to reflect status.

Cheers,
Jason

The renderer lets you configure how any part of the editor draws. If you want to configure this for a single control instance then you would need to create a VisualStudio2005SyntaxEditorRenderer and assign it to the SyntaxEditor.Renderer property. In that class you would set the TextAreaBackgroundFill to a SolidColorBackgroundFill of whatever color you want.
