How to preload the WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl) to use a certain configuration for syntax highlighting?
configuration for syntax highlighting
By default, the SyntaxEditor (EditControl) detects the file extension of the document loaded and then applies the appropriate
configuration settings for syntax highlighting the text in the document. But in cases where there is no extension (like in
Streams), the SyntaxEditor (EditControl) uses the default configuration settings.
To preload a particular configuration setting such that syntax highlighting will be done for text which is not saved (i.e.,
has no file extension) or being read from a stream, you should explicitly specify the Configurator to open a certain
configuration file as shown in the test application attached. This shows how you could pre-load the EditControl to use
XML syntax highlighting configuration settings.
