Delay activating lexer/parser

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Posted 12 years ago by Martin - Blaise - Statistics Netherlands
Is it possible to change/extend the time between modifying the source by typing and the call to the lexer and/or parser. For large documents we want to postpone the parsing for better performance.

Hi Martin,

The lexer (which updates syntax highlighting) occurs real-time and there is no delay option for that. Parser calls are delayed and are already optimized to execute on a worker thread (assuming you set up an ambient parse request dispatcher per in the documentation). When a user is typing, repeated parse requests will also be delayed temporarily until a brief pause occurs, keeping them optimized.
