How can I get a XmlNode or AstNode using line/offset data?

SyntaxEditor for Silverlight Forum

I'm using the Silverlight SyntaxEditor with an XML document, and I'd like to be able to get the Xml node or an AstNode (using the editor's Document's XmlParseData).

Is there a mechanism that will return either if I provide the document's text and line/offset information? I tried using

parseData.Ast.FindChildNode(offset);
but that didn't seem to help as it only returned the top level node for the entire document.

Thanks,

-Craig

Hi Craig,

That is correct... FindChildNode only scans through the direct children. We use a method internally that recurses the tree to find a descendant node and have been toying with making it public. We'll add an IAstNode.FindDescendantNode method for the next build that does this.

Is there an internal method in the current build that I could expose through reflection to get this behavior?

Hi Craig,

Sorry but no since it's obfuscated. It's just a recursive loop through, so you should be able to easily write a method that does it in a few lines of code, then switch to ours after next build.
