Text Editing Woes

I've had enough of my syntax-highlighting text editor in Latenite (it's a hack on top of the RichTextBox control, using all sorts of ugly Win32 hacks to beat it into submission). I'd much rather have a control I had some... 'control' over, so have taken to writing my own custom control.



One useful thing is that it supports Unicode characters nicely, unlike the RichTextBox



It doesn't currently support text selections (which is a bit of a problem) but once that's added it should be simple enough to start adding goodies to it that weren't easily possible via the RichTextBox control (reliable line highlighting, tab width manipulation, whitespace glyphs, collapsing code blocks and so on).
