Sorry ASTs are not yet supported in the current public beta. We will be adding features for this sort of thing over the coming weeks/months.

We are trying to do a mock up within next 6 weeks and it's vital to have AST for that.
Should we stick to WinForms SE for now or there is at least 50% chance to have new beta with AST or something like that available in WPF version during that timeframe?

Thank you.

Hi Max,

It's hard to say at this point. Which specific features do you require?

Well, we actually need to determine where is in the code such things like comments, method block starts and so on. We need to inject some things (controls) in editor.

I would recommend sticking with WinForms for now. We will be adding features like semantic parsing and ASTs however it will likely take more than that timeframe, even if we work on it next.

How different will be WPF AST API? We can wait and use WinForm version, since it's a mock up for now, but our app is WPF and we would like not to throw away time on something that would obsolete soon.

We have already tried Win.Forms version, but having difficulties with large size fonts on some lines (other lines have normal font, but even single line with large font makes all lines too large - in our case 2.5 times larger).

Max,

The past week or so we've been improving the syntax language design so that we can support the ability for languages to respond to text input and display completion lists, etc. Once that set of features is complete, we'll likely be doing a maintenance release.

Then we'll start looking into expanding into a new feature area. At this point I can't yet say whether that will be semantic parsing or not however we do plan on eventually porting over something similar to the Grammar/AST model in SE4.
