Hi,

Currently the only options I have in a HighlightingStyle.UnderlineStyle are solid, dashdot, dot & dash. Do you consider in the future adding wavy or squiggly or something like that, so we could implement a style that looks like the a Word spelling error?

Best Regards,
Gustavo Guerra

Hi Gustavo,

Wave lines are something we have on the TODO list. They aren't very straightforward to do in WPF like normal underlines, so we will be working on those as we get more into implementing span indicators.

Ok, thanks, we'll keep using dashed lines temporarily until that feature is implemented.

As a related question, we're using a layered classifier on top of the default SQL highlighter to add some extra decorations such as a different background or an underline, but unfortunately those decorations are completely replacing the style of the builtin highlighter. Is there any way of combining the two, while keeping them as separate classifiers?

Best Regards,

They should be able to be layered so this could be a bug. Could you make a simple sample project that shows the issue and email it over so we can take a look? Thanks!

While trying to create a sample project to demonstrate the problem I realized that it was a bug on our side.

Thanks anyway,

Is it possible for you to give an estimate on when this feature will be available?

Gustavo,

Sorry but not yet. We have started work on adding hooks for syntax/semantic analysis first, since that process is often what is used to get the data needed to determine where errors (and thus red lines) are.
