Outlining on language transitions

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Hi guys,

As far as I remember, SyntaxEditor for WinForms could automatically detect language transitions and do outlining for the inline code. Is this also the case for SE for WPF? If not, what's the easiest way to detect a language transition based on the token? I can use the key of the token for situations where the token key is unique, but for instance with inline <style> blocks, the tokens will be the same as for any other tags. What's the best approach here? :)

Hi Kasper,

At this time we don't have automatic outlining for language transitions. I'll make sure that's on the TODO list.

If you are doing AST-based outlining, it's probably easier to detect language changes. But with token-based, you'd probably want to examine the Lexer property of the tokens for changes between tokens. However due to that other bug you found in another post, you might not be able to do that just yet until that one is fixed.
