i have only been using ScintillaNET for a few days... but i have tryed to make my own .xml
im not trying to remake a "coding Language" i am trying to make a Editor for a game.. it helps you make new files for the game to see... i normally do this in just notepad but i got feed up with typing the same thing over and over again...
so now the time is to make an editor with Intillisense to help me along the way...
i have used some code i found on here to add keywords to the application in code view (not from the xml) as i couldnt get it to use the xml properly
i have now made a small xml so i can have code snippets in (i couldnt find how to do this in code so i read the cs.xml) now here comes my problem..
When i use the key to bring up the snippet it all works with no error... then after that snippet i wanted to use another snippet but the new snippet takes the old snippet as a child yet i dont want this... i will show what i mean..
Just one snippet in the textarea
Now when i add a new one UNDER this one look what happens
when i hit the button for new snippet it highlights all the code and ends like that. there is problem one lol
HOW can i add colour to custom keywords? the ONLY normal syntax i need is the // comment and True and False EVERYTHING else is game stuff not coding stuff
i have seen there is NO examples for this library :( and to add to that im using VB.NET to program this little application
Thanks for reading this LONG post and hope someone can help me
