custom selection of (collapsed) regions

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 15 years ago by Walter Leinert - Hewlett Packard GmbH

i have to implement an editing features for a custom "pseudo" language with two levels of collapsible regions. I have n items at level 1 and under each level 1 item there may by any number of level 2 items. Selection of level 1 or level to items has to display the whole level item range as selected.
I used a special highlighting indicator for implement this type custom selection. It works well for expanded regions but does not work for collapsed regions which are always displayed gray.

How can i control the display of collapsed regions?
Special properties, methods, custom renderer?

Regards, Walter

Hi Walter,

Sorry but currently, only a single style (like the gray foreground) can be applied to collapsed regions. The mouseover quick info can be customized though.

This is something we are hoping to be looking at as we get into outlining in the next generation framework we're prototyping out in the WPF version of SyntaxEditor.
