A major new version of Silverlight Studio is now available that adds significant new functionality to SyntaxEditor and its add-ons.

Detailed Update List


SyntaxEditor Control
  • Added numerous types to support IntelliPrompt parameter info features.
  • Added support for code fragment editing, where a header/footer code section can be pre/postpended to the document text for parsing purposes. Added the related ITextDocument.SetHeaderAndFooterText method, and ITextSnapshot.HeaderText, FooterText, and GetMergedBufferReader members.
  • Added the SyntaxEditor.IsMultiLine property, which can be set to false to enable single-line edit mode.
  • Added the SyntaxEditor.AcceptsTab property, which can be set to false to allow tab to move focus.
  • Added the EditorSearchView.IsModeToolBarVisible property.
  • Added the IPrintSettings.IsSyntaxHighlightingEnabled option, which can be set to false to disable syntax highlighting in printouts.
  • Added the ICompletionSession.CommitCharacters collection, which is the list of characters that can trigger a commit when there is a full selection.
  • Added the CompletionMatchOptions.RequiresExact option that requires that item text exactly matches before a full selection is created.
  • Added a GeneratedCodeAttribute to C#/VB types generated by the Language Designer.
  • Updated the replace all in selection code to properly respect block selection.

  • Updated the default line terminator returned from a ITextDocument.LoadFile call when there is no line terminator.
  • Updated the ensure caret visible code to leave some space to the left when scrolling left.
  • Fixed a bug where the completion list might not show the selected item as typing occurs when the CanFilterUnmatchedItems option is used.
  • Fixed a bug where a lock could occur when executing the Delete Blank Lines action on the last line.
  • Fixed a bug where highlighting style underlines weren't showing.
  • Fixed a bug with outlining node offset updating from deletions.

  • Fixed a bug where an intra-text adornment that didn't fit on the first line when word wrapped wouldn't display.
  • Made several performance enhancements.
  • Added new samples showing IntelliPrompt parameter info, use of type-specific AST nodes in a grammar, code fragments, and single-line edit mode.
  • Updated popup placement to better support right-to-left flow direction.
LL(*) Parser Framework
  • Fixed a bug where the grammer might incorrectly think that an infinite left recursion is taking place.
.NET Languages Add-on
  • Added automated IntelliPrompt parameter info features.
