Can on use VsTextEditPane?

P: n/a
Hi all,

I wondered if I could use the VsTextEditPane in one of my applications. I
did some research in my VS.NET installation and in the internet, but I could
not even find the dll the control is located in. Does anybody know more about
this?

If it was impossible to use this component, does anybody know good FREE
alternatives?

Regards Alexander

Alexander,

I'm afraid you can't use VsTextEditPane in your apps. Do you need a code
editor with syntax highlighting and IntelliSense-like popup lists? If yes,
then have a look at Scintilla.NET: http://sourceforge.net/projects/scide

I also heard that the text editor of SharpDevelop is a separate component
which can be reused in other applications.

HTH,

Why the hell can't one use this Component?

Yes the SharpDevelop TextControl is released under GNU.

I'll take a look at Scintilla.
