Well, I would imagine that SyntaxEditor is somewhat heavily laden with com/interop code, however I'd just like to know to what extent this is. How much of a stretch would it be to get syntaxeditor to run on mono, for instance? The mono System.Windows.Forms namespace is really maturing, and is at 98% completion right now. It would be pretty cool if SyntaxEditor could be run on mono. So, even though I'm sure I know the answer, could you please elaborate on this one?

SyntaxEditor uses no COM code at all. However it does use some Windows API calls since the .NET framework doesn't provide everything it needs.

Primarily, APIs are used for Windows XP themed drawing of the scrollbar, GDI double-buffering and some text drawing (since it is about twices as fast as GDI+ drawing), and IME support.

Ok, I kind of thought this may be the case. Was worth a shot anyways! :)
