I have been working on a small(ish) NSIS script editor (Why? Why Not?), and I have gone through three syntax highlighting text editor controls:

* ScintillaNET - Very powerful, just a little hard to wrap your head around
* ICSharpCode.TextEditor - Highlighting is goofy, hard to use.
* Storm.TextEditor - The one that just works!™

Storm.TextEditor actually highlights correctly, and is blazing fast! After a short bout of adding a syntax highlighting file for NSIS and getting Drag'n'Drop to work, I am on my way to getting this app done!

I also hit an odd issue where the framework could not convert an icon to a bitmap due to some missing metadata that appears to be OPTIONAL. I had made the icon from a png with the '@Icon Sushi' application (the original developer is Japanese, hence the strange name), which is what spat out an 'invalid' (for the .NET Framework at least) icon. I used to try again, and that worked. Go figure.

If you guys want me to, I will post a link to the source/binaries when I get them online. And that 'when' may be a while (School and stuff).

And wish me luck in getting up at 6 AM for a 7:30 AM Economics class. Sleepy | :zzz: (Actually, the professor is very funny and has the amazing ability to keep a room full of half-awake students occupied and interested for a full hour, at least!)
