Hi Actpro Team,

At first let me say, that this component is an absolutely great thing.
Ive downloaded it yesterday and after spending many hours, I came to the conclusion, that your SyntaxEditor is the Component, which I need for my solution. Now I have a little question about distributing and licensing (before I will buy a Single-Developer-License)

The goal of my project is Creating Code based on a template. This template should be editable very comfortable (in the Syntaxeditor of course). The user can choose a Script-Language (i.e. VB.NET) and an optional Output-Language (or simple ScriptLanguage.PlainText). With the possibilities from this control, I have much more options <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0"> and the Multilanguage-support is the most important feature for me.

At first, the devolpers in our team should be able to work with this Codegenerator.
I would like to install the Editorcontrol only at one machine and compile the project. The output should be a Library and the Editorcontrol is encapsulated in a UserControl wich offers the needed interfaces. So the developers in our team has no directly access to the Syntaxeditor (only a runtime-license), but they can use some features from the encapsulated control by the Public Interface from the Library.

Is that allowed?
Or is it neccessary to buy a license for every developer? (That could be a financially problem for us).

Greetings, Perni.

Hi Perni,

I know of a couple customers who have implemented full programs that deal with editing templates and they've had great success with SyntaxEditor.

You are allowed to have that design however each developer does still require a developer license. Otherwise you are cheating by simply wrapping the control with your own interface and getting one license.

Keep in mind that we have discounts for bulk purchases: 4 for the price of 3, 8 for the price of 5, etc.

If you need anything else, let us know.

Ok. I don't want to cheat you (therefore I've asked here).

I decide now, &lt;B&gt;not&lt;/B&gt; to make a Public Usercontrol. Instead I will compile the solution to a simply Exe-File. That's for the first instance. We will see in future - if we need more, we will buy more licenses.

Thanks for your fast answer.
