Highlighting Styles within Collapsed Text

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 19 years ago by Boyd - Sr. Software Developer, Patterson Consulting, LLC
When working with VB.NET in Whidbey, the entire header of a function is part of the collapsed text. So the following code:
Public Function TestFunction()
    ' Some Code
End Function
Gets collapsed to look like this:
Public Function TestFunction ...
The entire CollapsedText region is outlined just like is currently supported in SyntaxEditor, but the text within the collapsed region still shows standard highlighting styles (i.e "Public" and "Function" are blue and "TestFunction" is black).

Is it possible to display standard syntax highlighting in the CollapsedText of a node to support the same feature as Whidbey? Currently, it appears the CollapsedText is all drawn with the same highlighting style.

Yes, I've seen that as well. SyntaxEditor currently only supports one color for collapsed nodes. We'll have to do some discussions in the future in a chat on how to possibly do this since I have a feeling it won't be easy.
