Hi,

I've been trying to determine how to enable drag-drop in the Syntax Editor control but i cant seem to determine how to do this.

I've looked through the help file and tried the sample browser, but i couldnt determine the answer.

The reason is that we need to drag the selection out of the window to drop onto another window. Could you tell me how i might achieve this please?

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

Sorry but drag/drop isn't yet supported in the WPF SyntaxEditor. Now that we've gotten past a bulk of the .NET Languages Add-on implementation, we plan on hopefully adding it in the 2011.2 version.

Thanks for your reply.

Ah i see, i thought i might have been doing something wrong.

Thats a shame, we intended to use this feature shortly for our upcoming release version(mid August). It was for the Editor selection to be dropped into other UI/panels as part of our design.

If it can be added into the next version it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

The SyntaxEditor update pieces are about ready to go, however we're doing a major overhaul with themes across all products and are adding native control themes that match our custom themes. We still need to finish that up before it will be ready. It may still be several weeks yet, but we're working as fast as we can on it.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0683) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
