If I have a TextBox in a Grid, and I have the RowHeight set to "Auto", then as I type in the TextBox, the control will get taller as I type things in.

If I replace the TextBox with a SyntaxEditor, it does not get taller. Is there a setting to make it do this?

Sorry, but not right now. SyntaxEditor's lines are completely virtualized so it doesn't really know how big it needs to be.

Just to manage my future expectations, is that likely to change?

David,

Probably not, at least in the near future. I understand that when we're just talking about a document with a handful of lines this isn't that big of a deal to implement. However when we potentially have documents with thousands and thousands of lines, having to measure the entire document contents would be a bit of a perf killer.

Right now, all view lines are virtualized to help provide for maximized performance and minimal memory usage. We'd have to change that to support auto-height.

I understand - I just wanted to confirm before I consider other options on my end.

Thanks!
