Good Evening all, i have downloaded the new dll's added the reference to my VB.NET project, i have put SciLexer.dll in SysWOW64 folder, i have SciLexer64.dll in my debug folder.

i CAN add Scintilla Control ok and it shows on my forum and that works fine.

i CAN NOT add SnippetChooser to my form?


above is a screen shot of the error im getting when trying to add the snippetChooser to my form.

Hope some one can help.

Also is there a way to add snippets to this as a auto complete if i can not use SnippetChooser? i have a game i'm adding content to and this is going to make life a lot easier to make the files we need.

What's funny is I've never used the SnippetChooser control before--and I'm a ScintillaNET developer... But, what I think is happening is that the SnippetChooser control is not something meant to be added to your form. It is used by ScintillaNET automatically to display snippets. You don't need to create the control yourself.

We should probably hide it from the toolbox....
