Hi Guys,

How to attach richTextBox object to ICSharpCode.TextEditor library?? I couldn't find any code for this purpose. Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Add reference to ICSharpcode.TextEditor to your project

Add following class

public class AppSyntaxModeProvider : ISyntaxModeFileProvider  
 List< syntaxmode > syntaxModes = null;  
 public ICollection< syntaxmode > SyntaxModes {  
  get {  
   return syntaxModes;  
 public AppSyntaxModeProvider()  
  Assembly assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();  
  //enumerate resource names if need  
  //foreach (string resourceName in assembly.GetManifestResourceNames()){}  
  //load modes list  
  Stream syntaxModeStream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("WindowsFormsApplication1.Resources.SyntaxModes.xml");  
  if (syntaxModeStream != null) {  
   syntaxModes = SyntaxMode.GetSyntaxModes(syntaxModeStream);  
  } else {  
   syntaxModes = new List< syntaxmode >();  
 public XmlTextReader GetSyntaxModeFile(SyntaxMode syntaxMode)  
  Assembly assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();  
  // load syntax schema  
  Stream stream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("WindowsFormsApplication1.Resources." + syntaxMode.FileName);  
  return new XmlTextReader(stream);  
 public void UpdateSyntaxModeList()  
  // resources don't change during runtime  

Add schema files to embedded resources

Attach schema provider to control

// Attach to the text editor.
    new AppSyntaxModeProvider());

Set current syntax scheme to control
