Comment #2 by Tony MOREHEN:

The documentation for the texteditor control is very sparse, making it very difficult to work with the control's unique properties.  The wiki just returns "symbol does not exist" for properties such as  Selected  SelectionColumn   SelectionLine   ShowBraces   ShowCurrent   ShowCursor   ShowExpand   ShowIcon   ShowIndent  ShowLimit   ShowLineNumber  ShowModified   ShowPosition   ShowPreview ShowSpaces   StopLine and for methods such as  EnterDiffMode   ExpandAll  FindNextDiff   FindNextLimit   FindNextString FindPreviousDiff   FindPreviousLimit   FindPreviousString   GetHighlight GetIndent   Goto   GotoCenter.  The documentation for Styles is a bit more extensive but hardly useful.  I don't see how you could find out that you should use TextEditor.Styles[Highlight.Background].Color from what is provided.

Text editor is a very useful control.  Improved documentation would make it a great control.
