A WPF syntax-highlighting code editor control and parsing suite. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF is a text editing control that is packed with features for efficient code editing, including syntax highlighting, line numbers, block selection, IntelliPrompt UI, split views, zooming, bi-di support, and much more. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF includes over 20 sample languages such as C#, VB, XML, etc. Custom language definitions can be developed and distributed with your applications as well. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF is designed for use in IDE (integrated development environment) applications, however there are many other applications that can take advantage of such a control. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF includes one year subscription and can also be bought as part of the Actipro WPF Studio.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF is a syntax-highlighting code editor control that uses language definitions and a text/parsing framework to provide many of the features found in the Visual Studio code editor. Highlighting styles can be completely customized by the end user, even allowing the changing of text area background and line number margin colors.

Advanced Editing Capabilities

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF has a number of display features you find in the Visual Studio code editor such as line numbers, visible whitespace, word wrap, line modification marks, split views, mouse wheel zooming, and more. Multiple undo/redo support is integrated with the editor. Selections can be made using the standard snaking mode or block (rectangular) mode.

Over 100 Edit Actions

Over 100 edit actions are included with Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF that cover everything from basic caret movement and selection to features such as tabification, character/word/line transposition, etc.

Unicode and Bi-Directional Editing Support

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF supports the editing of any Unicode characters and even has full support for working with embedded bi-directional text.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF Text/Parsing Framework Features

Documents and Snapshots

A document is what is "edited" by a Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF, as it is the object that provides access to all the text being edited. It supports easy file load/save and can be tied to a language definition to provide extended functionality. The complete document text is available any time via snapshots, where each snapshot is an immutable versioned thread-safe copy of the text at the time it was created. Snapshots allow you to parse text without fear of it changing in the middle of a parse. There are powerful text scanning classes included and offsets within a snapshot can be translated to their relative location in any other snapshot for the same document. This means that you can reliably locate a certain range of text, even after multiple edits have been made.

Batch Text Change Operations

The text/parsing framework's text change model is extremely powerful and provides many helper methods for doing everything from simple text replace operations to append operations. Multiple operations can be queued up into a single text change and executed as a single atomic unit.

Language Definitions

Language definitions are a core piece of the text/parsing framework. They basically encapsulate all functionality for a particular code language that is being used within a Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF control. This is everything from various types of parsing (which drive features like syntax highlighting) all the way to simpler features like determining word breaks or performing line commenting. Transitions between multiple languages are fully supported.Over 20 full source sample language definitions are included with Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF for common languages like Assembly, Batch files, C#, CSS, HTML, INI files, Java, JScript, Lua, MSIL, Pascal, Perl, PHP, PowerShell, Python, SQL, VB.NET, VBScript, and XML. Custom language definition can easily be created, thereby making it possible to build a code editor for any proprietary language.

Line Commenting

Languages can each be assigned a line commenter that is capable of adding and removing comments. Algoritms for both line-based comments (like C#'s "//") and range comments (like XML's "<!-- -->) are supported. Custom algorithms can be developed as well.

Export to HTML and RTF

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF has built-in functionality for easily exporting syntax-highlighted text content to a string or file in HTML and/or RTF formats. Options are also available for auto-copying text in these formats when clipboard operations are performed.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF IntelliPrompt Features

Completion List

The completion list popup is used to display a number of code completion options to the end user, not only providing intelligent information about the code being edited, but also improving the productivity of the end user by supporting "Ctrl+Space" functionality. Completion lists support a powerful filtering mechanism that can display tabs and/or buttons to show/hide items that meet certain criteria. They include numerous matching algorithm options, including some that allow you to make matches just by typing any characters in the item text. Custom matching algorithms can be developed, and the completion list auto-highlights matched text. Description tips show more information about items via the use of rich formatted content.

Quick Info

Quick info tips can be used to give more information about what is at the current caret location or under the mouse. They support any type of content, however the most appealing way to add content is to use our mini-HTML markup language that applies rich formatting to the displayed text.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF Printing Features

Dialogs and Options

The display of various Print and Print Preview dialogs is as easy as a simple method call. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF includes a number of settings that affect printouts only, and not the editor views.

Margins

Built-in margins include document title, line number, word wrap glyph, and page number margins. It's easy to create a custom margin and insert it anywhere in a printed page.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF Searching (Find/Replace) Features

General Search Functionality

All of the standard find/replace options are available, such as match case, match whole word, search up, multiple search pattern providers (regular expressions, etc.), scope options, etc. Regular expression searches return captures and support substitutions.

Search Pattern Providers

Search pattern providers describe the format in which find and replace text can be entered when doing searches. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF includes normal, regular expression, wildcard, acronym, and shorthand providers but it's easy for you to build your own custom ones as well.

EditorSearchView Control

An EditorSearchView control is included that implements a complete find/replace user interface, similar to the one found in Visual Studio. It features stylish animations when making mode changes and showing/hiding options and can be embedded in a tool window from our Docking & MDI product.

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF Other Features

Performs Great with Large Documents

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF and the text/parsing framework have been specifically designed with large files in mind. They use numerous virtualization techniques that both reduce memory usage and improve performance, especially when large files are involved. Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF can open a 10MB document almost instantly and its editing performance is unmatched by the competition.

Extensible Object Model and Separation of Document/UI

The Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF product is split into two main assemblies: one that implements the text/parsing model and is cross platform (can be used in WinForms, ASP.NET, etc.) and one that implements the editor control user interface in WPF. There are a number of optional add-on assemblies that can be used and harness the frameworks in the main assemblies. The object models in the product make extensive use of interfaces and thus, are extremely extensible. Our design provides for many extensibility points where you can customize the behavior of the editor however you need.

XBAP Support

Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF fully supports use in XBAPs (browser applications). We have specifically engineered it to operate within the bounds of the XBAP security sandbox.

Extensive Documentation and Samples

Actipro has spent a lot of time refining the design of Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF to take advantage of WPF best practices. We realize that a good product is only part of the equation though and have also worked very hard to write detailed documentation on the product. In addition to that, Actipro SyntaxEditor for WPF ships with the full source for many QuickStart examples that each focus on learning a specific feature.
