    Would love help in open source HTML editor

    Hello all!
    my project is shown in my footer. I am asking for VB devs who would be interested in investing time in this project. I am sorry to say I have nothing to offer but a big thank you and a place in the credits box, so I don't blame you if you're thinking "no way"
    Thanks!

    Re: Would love help in open source HTML editor

    I have time, since it's holidays, I might be able to help with bits and pieces of the program(but don't expect anything constant)

    What does the project need doing ?
    I red on your website that It need's converting to VB. So is your project fully working in C#, but you want it in vb ?

    Thanks for offering! I'd like help getting the autocomplete control working. It's coded in C# which I don't know, but it works in VB. I'll upload the latest source right now. Thanks again!

    Re: Would love help in open source HTML editor

    Autocomplete like Intellisense or like when you type <html> it automatically gives you </html> ?
    And also, Please check form1! Something is causing it to display an error that I can't remove without it messing up all the controls, and I also get a Nullreference exception that is related to one of the controls, but I can't look at it because it is messing up my controls.

    Would it be the ribbon by any chance? I just barely uploaded the latest version. Sorry about the delay. What I'd like the autocomplete to do is I type <h and it will offer <h1></h1>, <h2></h2>, etc.

    Yes, it is the ribbon, I think it's one of the buttons. I also want you to consider switching to wpf if the ribbon gives problems. You can then use the ribbon microsoft created, and you can use sharpdevelop's text control which is a very good syntax highlighter, and the default wpf webbrowser which doesn't look to bad.

    I was downloading the source form your website which is alpha 05, found the alpha 08 and downloading it.
    Ok, so I downloaded the 08 and the ribbon is working nicely, so you can disregard the previous post. Will see what I can do.

    I've been fiddling with your program seeing what it does and how it was coded, but when I try download the help file for the fast colored textbox I can't it won't let me login to the site. So I can only try and fix the problem with trial and error, which is slow with third party components.

    Re: Would love help in open source HTML editor

    Ok, I fiddled with the control and I think I found a solution.
    Add this as the last two lines of sub new
    Code:
            popupMenu.AppearInterval = 100
            popupMenu.SearchPattern = "(.*)"

    Thanks a lot! I already added rep to you, so they don't let me do it again, but rest assured I would if I could! Do you have a name you would like to go in the credits box by? Also, would you know how to display images by the autocomplete items? The textbox does have that feature.

    I'll look into that tomorrow, It's getting pretty late. And I don't care for credits. I only gave you two lines of code in 4 days, not quite the speed record.

    Nonetheless, it wouldn't have been possible without your help, and this is a small way of showing appreciation. Thanks for your help!

    Oops. I spoke too quick. It only works once, and then it won't do any more.
