syntax coloring ctl?

Dan
I'd like to show some XML text into an (editable) text box with some syntax
coloring for tags, attributes etc. I don't need a full-blown commercial
control, I'd just like to do some coloring on tags and the like. Is there
any (possibly free!) C-Sharp control (based onto the RTF control, I imagine)
or code sample for building a such control, or should I create my own from
scratch?

Thanks guys!

Hi Dan

Thank you for posting in the community!

Based on my understanding, you want a control to display your xml, which
can be editable and do coloring for both tags and attributes.

=============== =============== ===============
Is your application WinForm based or WebForm based?

I think you do not need the function of expand and collapse, so you can
just use a RichTextBox like control.

Unfortunately, after searching on internet, I still did not get a control
you want. I think you may need to read the xml yourself.

For WebForm, the below richtextbox exposes the function of content coloring
etc, you can read your xml file, then populate this control with indent:

For WinForm, I think you can also leverage the WinForm RichTextBox control,
do the same thing as I stated.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to post it in the group. I am standing by to be
of assistance.

hello. I've got a simple question. I've searched on google for PHP scripts coloring syntax e.g. asm, c, c++, bash etc. I've only found some CGI, apps, modules for Apache - but i can't use them on my server (due to my restricted permissions - i can use only PHP and MySQL).

Hi. I would like to ask If somebody don't have any small sample to coloring XML syntax, e.g. in RichTextBox. It can be in VB.NET or C#. I watched on SharpDevelop, but I could not understand that code, which is coloring text. Thanks.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
