I got code like that with ICSHARPCODE TEXT EDITOR

TextLocation start = new TextLocation(int column , int line);
TextLocation end = new TextLocation((int column , int line);
textEditorControl1.ActiveTextAreaControl.SelectionManager.SetSelection(start, end);

Hi David,

In SyntaxEditor you can do something like this to move the caret to a particular line/char:
editor.SelectedView.Selection.StartEditPosition = new EditPosition(line, col);
However that is if your line/char is based on "view" positions. There may be less view lines than document lines when you have collapsed text, etc.

If your line/char are "document" positions then you can do this instead:
editor.SelectedView.Selection.StartOffset = editor.Document.PositionToOffset(new DocumentPosition(line, col));
As for adding IntelliPrompt, you do that in code-behind for the language. So if you are using our sample PHP dynamic language, you'd first need to add a code-behind class for it using the SyntaxLanguageTypeName attribute (see the HTML sample's root tag for a sample). The documentation talks about this attribute too.

The HtmlDynamicSyntaxLanguage code-behind class for the sample HTML language shows how to pop up a member list. If you are looking to do quick info and parameter info, our "Simple" language sample shows how to do those features as well.
