Can plugins access the scintilla drawing component?
« on: March 02, 2011, 06:14:38 pm »
Hi,
I would really like to change the visual rendering that scintilla uses for the tab, CR and LF characters. I was wondering 1- if such a thing is possible in Code::Blocks and 2- whether the code that I need to modify is CB code or Scintilla code; put differently, whether CB reuses a scintilla library or embeds it in its own code.
This is my first need with this IDE and I thought I could also use it as an idea for a first attempt at making a plugin for Code::Blocks.
Thanks for any input on this.

C::B uses modified wxScintilla it is somewhere in the source tree.
Probably you should modify the (wx)Scintilla sources directly.
