Nested braces highlightning

I am new to ScintillaNET because the richtext control of VS doesn't fits my needs in highlightning.

I don't need a "language" highlightning, but a nested curly brace highlightning. Something like:

{here is text {here is more text} here the starting text continues}


  • the braces are highlightened (e.g. bold and with implemented brace matching)
  • and the nested content is displayed in different colours like

"here is text" and "here the starting text continues" is displayed in blue and "here is more text" is displayed in red.

Best would be if the nesting is auto-colored by level.
