Product Version: SyntaxEditor v4.0.?

Just checking to see if there have been any improvments to V4 for large file handeling since the beginning of last year 2009 or any recent plans to upgrade V4 for this?

Hi Ernesto,

When we looked at the v4 model we decided that there needed to be a huge change in how we store text and tokens to improve performance for large files. We have been building the WPF version of SyntaxEditor for a while now, and that is where we've been prototyping out all our ideas for improving nearly every feature area of SyntaxEditor, large file performance included. For instance I can open a 10MB C# file and start typing instantly with that newer design.

Our plan is to get the WPF version to support the same feature areas that are in the WinForms version and then hopefully migrate the WinForms version to use the newer design so that languages, etc. can be shared between WPF, Silverlight, and WinForms SyntaxEditor. We continue to diligently move forward so that we can get to that point, but there are still a number of feature areas left to implement in the newer WPF version. We are working on it every day though as it is a top priority for us.

So again to answer your question, yes we have made very drastic large file handling performance improvements. But they are currently in the newer platform we are prototyping out with the WPF version, and we hope to eventually get them into the WinForms version as a 5.0 version.

Is this information still accurate? Are the large file improvements in the WPF version, but will not be in the Winforms until v5?

Hi Richard,

Yes, the above reply is still accurate. WPF is getting more and more feature areas all the time but is still missing some that are in WinForms. We are actively working on adding those.

Any ETA, it would be great to have.

Hi Luc,

Sorry no ETA at this time. There are still numerous other feature areas left to port to WPF/Silverlight but we do have the major ones done.
