I tried to set word wrapping functionality.
The documentation says "set the SynatxEditor.WordWrapMode property..."
but the property is read-only.
How can I reach word wrappinng functionality?

Hi Christel,

Sorry the Silverlight SyntaxEditor doesn't support word wrap. The WPF and WinForms versions do.

Silverlight doesn't give us a proper text measuring/drawing framework so it was very tricky to get the editor to render text at all in Silverlight. If we added word wrap, performance would probably suffer due to the way we are forced to measure/render text there. If Microsoft eventually adds a proper text formatting framework like in WPF, we can add it.
