Determining LineEndStyle from LoadFile

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Is there any way to determine when loading a file in SyntaxEditor what the current LineEndStyle is? I want to allow the user to convert between the two, but I can't seem to find an ability to determine a file's current type.

Thanks,
John

SyntaxEditor will load either \n or \r\n delimited files and converts them internally to \n line ends. Then to get the text using one format or another, use Document.GetText and the GetSubstring also has overloads for specifying the format. However it doesn't tell you what format was loaded.

I suppose we could look at the first line break and see if there is an \r before it. Then return the proper LineEndStyle from LoadFile. Would that suffice?
