One last IntelliPromptMemberList question ;)

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

My MemberList may contain items whose string lengths are quite long. I wanted to limit the length to X number of characters and then add a '...' to the end. The description field contains the full text of the item. When they select the item from the MemberList I would like to know if there is a way to insert the contents of the description field instead of what is actually displayed in the MemberList? Thanks.

So you want to insert text that is different that what is displayed... do I have that right?

If so, that's easy...
memberList.Add(new IntelliPromptMemberListItem("param", imageIndex, "Describes one of the parameters for the method.", "param name=\"", "\"/>"));
This shows how the list can add an item that shows "param" but when inserted will insert the text "param name=\"" before the caret and "\"/>" after. You can leave the post text null to just do a simple replace instead of a surround replace.
