Hi,

I am creating an application in Visual Studio Express (VB). One of the fields is a non editable text box which will contain some SQL.

How can I format the textbox so that the SQL dedicated words / comments etc are properly formatted?

Thanks

Mike

how do you define 'properly formatted' ?

do you mean you want the SQL reserved words capitalised, if not in quotes ?

some lists for reference...

then parse the text looking for these words, but need to check for quotes

or do you want different functions to be on separate lines as well...


but a better option would be to send it to on of the online formatters like http://sqlformat.org/api/   the VB.NET calls would be similar to the ruby example.

http://architectshack.com/PoorMansTSqlFormatter.ashx has a library you  could use.

(note i have not tried any of the api or libraries)
