The ScintillaControlMBS control is an advanced text editor to edit code in various languages. It provides lexers for syntax highlighting in over 100 languages including SQL, JavaScript and HTML. We added a Xojo lexer to highlight code for XojoScript.

As well as features found in standard text editing components, Scintilla includes features especially useful when editing and debugging source code. These include support for syntax styling, error indicators, code completion and call tips. The selection margin can contain markers like those used in debuggers to indicate breakpoints and the current line. Styling choices are more open than with many editors, allowing the use of proportional fonts, bold and italics, multiple foreground and background colours and multiple fonts.

Our plugin includes built-in libraries for MacOS 64-bit, Windows 32/64-bit and Linux 64-bit, so you can use it without external libraries. But if you like, you can alternatively load your own libraries. You can have multiple controls work on the same documents providing different views and you can asynchronously load big text documents.
