WPF WYSIWYG HTML Editor

Hi,

I am implementing a WYSIWYG HTM Editor in my WPF application as suggested by http://www.sheldmandu.com/programming/wysiwyg-html-editor-in-dotnet-wpf-windows-forms-vb6-in-web-browser, using ckeditor.

I am having an issue where my ckeditor config.js does not seem to be referenced when the page is loaded into the webbrowser control.

If I view in a browser then all works fine.

Anyone any ideas why not and how to resolve?

Cheers

Simon

I have no clue of what's going on there but I think you could use a native WPF solution instead:
https://github.com/icsharpcode/SharpDevelop/wiki/AvalonEdit

This is the edit engine behing MonoDevelop so it's pretty stable and reliable.
Lots of example and papers can be found there also.

Make sure you have a look here also: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/42490/Using-AvalonEdit-WPF-Text-Editor

Thank you, I will have a look at that.

A native WPF control was always the preferred solution and I have been using the Smith WPF HTML Editor up until recently - problem is it is a bit buggy and users were complaining.

If this does the trick I will mark as answer.

Cheers

This control was not exactly what I was after for this problem, but it may still come in useful as it is a nice control for viewing code syntax.

I will mark as answer, however, as by trying this control and moving the webbrowser control out of the way, it seemed to kickstart the webbrowser into working properly, so I can continue with the initial plan.

Cheers
