Here is a rough sample of how to integrate FXScintilla into a FOX application:


  #include <fx.h>
  #include <Scintilla.h>
  #include <FXScintilla.h>

  int main(int argc, char ** argv)
    FXApp application("test");
    application.init(argc, argv);
    FXMainWindow * win = new FXMainWindow(&application, "Test");

    // Instantiating an FXScintilla widget
    FXScintilla * scint = new FXScintilla(win, NULL, 0, LAYOUT_FILL_X|LAYOUT_FILL_Y);

    // The Scintilla programming interface is through messages
    // like MS Windows (see scintilla/doc/ScintillaDoc.html)
    scint->sendMessage(SCI_STYLESETFONT, STYLE_DEFAULT, (long)"lucida");
    scint->sendMessage(SCI_STYLESETSIZE, STYLE_DEFAULT, (long)10);
    scint->sendMessage(SCI_STYLECLEARALL, 0, 0);
    return 0;
