Hello Edward; thanks for your answer!

Yes, StyledTextCtrl is a wrapper for Scintilla; the wxPython
documentiation for it can be found here:


But actually, I was looking for something more 'light weight'; e.g.
to write my own Scintilla-like component (which I would not like to
base on Scintilla :-)

Calling Scintilla (STC) the heavy weight champion and TextCtrl an
amateur, I think there is something missing just in between.
