From StyledTextViewer to a StyledTextEditor with JavaFX8


The title already says what this is about

the internal code is a bit ugly and I’m using some brute force stuff to simply get it going, naturally there are missing features like selection, … . Next is to port more stuff from Eclipse-Text-Infrastructure and integrate with JDT once more.

The sourcecode is found at e(fx)clipse github repo

    Since, as I understand it, you are virtualizing much of the text and placing each line in a seperate TextFlow node, how are you managing line wrapping and resizing, if you don’t mind my asking? I’m planning to implement a control which does something similar, though I won’t need to edit source code, so it will be a bit simpler because I won’t need the syntax highlighting and whatnot. Thanks.

      The root-control can style ranges of code – everything like Syntax-Highlighting is implemented ontop of it. I’m not dealing with automatic line wraping because I’m splitting up the input source into lines each one getting represented by a ListCell. So why not simply reuseing my code or better improve its implementation – I know that at the moment the simple use case you present doesn’t work but the only reason for it is that I didn’t really care about it.

      All code is released under EPL.
