Hi, I have a pretty simple use case that works fine as long as I don't set ShowTabs to true in AvalonEdit. I have a IBackgroundRenderer where I want to highlight som characters by drawing a rectangle around them with this simple code:
private static void highlightCharacters(TextView textView, DrawingContext drawingContext, VisualLine visualLine, int startIndex, int length)
var rects = BackgroundGeometryBuilder.GetRectsFromVisualSegment(textView, visualLine, startIndex, startIndex + length);
foreach (Rect r in rects)
Rect drawRect = new Rect(r.X, r.Y, r.Width, r.Height);
drawingContext.DrawRectangle(s_brush, null, drawRect);
The problem with a line with tabs and ShowTabs (textView.Options.ShowTabs == true) is that the indexes seems to be all offset with the amount of tabs on that line. E.g. if I ask for startIndex 0 and length 1 and the first char on that line is a tab then a rect with Width 0 is returned instead of 32.
Bug? Am I doing anything wrong? Workaround?
