Syntax Editor Search Types

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Posted 5 months ago by Nimrod Shaulski
Version: 23.1.4


The search dialog contains a selection between different "search types": Normal, Regular Expression, Wildcard, Acronym and Shorthand.

I was trying to find out which rules each of these types follows, but couldn't find a proper explanation in the documentation.

Can anyone explain, or direct me to the proper documentation on this matter?

Also, is it possible to change these types in our application? (I believe we have a license without the code).

A description of each of the search pattern providers is in this documentation topic.

The ISearchOptions.PatternProvider (for instance EditorSearchOptions class implements ISearchOptions) can be set to any object that implements ISearchPatternProvider.  Our static SearchPatternProviders class contains each of the built-in five pattern providers available to be set to that property.  You can use any of those built-in pattern providers or alternatively can create your own instead.
