Hi everybody,

Each syntaxEditor in my application are in a MDIChild form.
So I use a event to tell to my main Form that the selection has changed and then I upgrade the panel of the statut bar to display cursor position.

But when doing that, the selection is very very low !

I tried also to directly set the text of the panel by using the MDIParent but it's worse I think !

Does that mean that the syntaxEditor must be in the same form than every other controls ??

Does anyone have already done such a thing ?

Thanks a lot for those will respond <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

I'm a little confused by what you're describing. Do you mean that the status bar is not visible on your parent Form? If you have a DockStyle.Bottom on it, I would think that it would work.

No no, I'll try to explain :

I want to display the current line number in the status bar, like in your test application.
But the syntaxEditor is in a MDIChild (so no in the main Form).

So I use an event to tell to the main form that the selection has changed in the syntaxEditor.
The selection_changed() method call a event which is got by the main Form, so I can upgrade my status bar.

I works with this method, the statusBar is upgraded fine. But the repaint of the selection in the syntaxEditor becomes very very slow...

I also try to make something like :
((mainForm)this.MDIParent).statusBar.Bars[0].Text = currentLine, it also works but it's the same for the repainting, very slow.

So How can I tell to another form that the selection of the syntaxEditor has changed without this repaint problem ?

I can't make a little app th show you if you still don't understand <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

So you're saying that the SyntaxEditor control's repainting becomes very slow when you have another MDI parent form attaching to its events? That's odd. If you can duplicate it in a small sample app, go ahead and send it.

Ok sorry, i found the problem ...
It is the repaint of my statusBar (a special component) that makes the repaint of the syntaxEditor slow ...

Thanks for you help and sorry again.
