JSON Language Coming to SyntaxEditor


We recently posted that the advanced JavaScript syntax language implementation in our SyntaxEditor Web Languages Add-on (WPF, Silverlight, and WinRT/XAML versions) is getting IntelliPrompt completion lists in the upcoming 2014.1 version.

In today's post, I'd like to announce that a brand new JSON syntax language is coming to the add-on as well!


JSON is a lightweight data-interchange format that is a subset of JavaScript syntax, and is commonly used with many web technologies.  With the new syntax language, you'll be able to provide a great editor/viewer for JSON data.  Here's a screenshot:


The JSON syntax language has these features:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Abstract syntax tree (AST) generation
  • Automatic code outlining based on AST structure
  • Reporting and automatic squiggle display of errors for invalid syntax
  • Mouse hover quick info for syntax errors
  • Smart indent
  • Code block selection
  • Delimiter (bracket) highlighting and auto-completion


This new syntax language will be available when the 2014.1 WPF, Silverlight, and WinRT/XAML versions are released in the next couple weeks.
