HighlightingStyle with a border?

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Is it possible to have a HighlightingStyle with a border, like the Selection has a style with a BorderBrush?

The reason for asking is that we have adjacent and inner HighlightingStyles with a background brush of the same type, and its kinda hard to distinguish the different styles this way. A border might give more insight how the different ranges interact.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Rick,

Sorry but at this time we don't yet support borders on highlighting styles. I've written down this request on our TODO list.

i have the opposite problem: i always get borders if i use highlighting style.
Please take a look at the screenshot:

Depending on the type of a token i apply a highlightingStyle.
The style is defined like this:

HightlightingStyle style = new HightlightingStyle(new SolidColorBrush(Color.FromArgb(255,0,0,0)),
new SolidColorBrush(Color.FromArgb(255,206,215,226)),

To show the problem i set the background of the syntaxeditor to an extreme contrast (green).
It seems that the background shine through!?

Any ideas to avoid this?

Thank in advance.

Hi Tino,

That isn't a border, that appears to be something with anti-aliasing where the background's outer edge is drawn. If you'd like to send us your sample that shows this, we can try to debug and eliminate it. Please rename any .zip file extensions so they don't get spam blocked.
