How to configure splits in the WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

1 min read

Split configuration

Splits contain list of expressions that must be treated as a single word. To configure the splits in WinForms EditControl, specify the required word in the split section.

The following is the code example that demonstrates the same. 


   <!--Combines special character with the keyword-->

By using the split configuration, ignore the lexemes preceded by a dot.


For example: 

The Class and public are keywords in the EditControl. By using the Splits concept in the EditControl, you can ignore this keyword when it is preceded with a Dot. When .public is loaded in the EditControl, public is not highlighted as keyword. 

You can refer to the following Link,!Documents/creatingacustomlanguageconfigurationfile.htm
