Can VS.NET code editor window be used as a control?

I would like to be able to view-only Visual Studio code files (.vb, .cs) in
an application outside of Visual Studio. Is it possible to show the code in
the same rich formatting (at least colors and indentation) as in a Visual
Studio code editor page? Could be either an .rtb or VS.NET text control.
Any ideas how to proceed?

Thanks,

You can base your implementation on the text editor component of
SharpDevelop:

I have been programming for 8 years now, and the one control that has really
frustrated me is the code editor. The functionality required by it goes far
beyond the features presented by .NET languages. If you want to make your
own control (which I highly NOT recommend), I suggest you make it in C++.
Very tough though.....

See the post above. SharpDevelop has done it.

I'm thinking of implementing a real-time collaborative text editor in Python using Twisted. An initial plan is to use a Twisted PB server daemon that accepts user:password:file connections from text editor clients to make changes to a specified file on the server, and have the text editor clients update their local copies of the file based on local user input or input entered from other users, relayed via the server. Jabber compatibility...

I have some old code that I use from the Access 95 Developers handbook. The code works very well, with the exception that it doesn't seem to recognize wide screens, and sizes tab controls so that they are too big and wind up covering up some of the fields on the main form. Is there any good code out there that works in a similar fashion that will also either a) stretch the form width wise on widescreens or b), rely on height rather than...

Introduction: Macro Security Levels in MS Office applications are recommended to be set to High. This stops any VBA code associated with a project from running, unless it is signed (with a certificate). A trusted signature will allow the code to run normally, whereas an un-trusted one will prompt the user either to trust the issuing CA (Certificate Authority) and enable the code, or simply to disable the code.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
