Using AvalonEdit as a style editor in Tabs Studio

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Sergey Vlasov @ 1:25 pm

Tabs Studio v2.1.5 makes possible to customize the style editor and the new AvalonStyleEditor add-in uses the AvalonEdit editor from the SharpDevelop IDE for style editing in Tabs Studio:

Out of the box AvalonEdit supports XML syntax highlighting, line numbers and block indent (select several lines and press Tab of Shift+Tab). I’ve also added the Ctrl+OemQuestion keyboard shortcut to comment and uncomment selected text.

AvalonEdit is easily extensible – more features like code completion and folding can be added later. Or completely different style editor control can be added to Tabs Studio in a separate add-in.
