Using it in a third party editor?

Hi guys,

Is it possible to use SQL Prompt engine in a 3rd party editor? Here is what I am after:
I have a SQL syntax editor withing my custom application (which is not a competing product - it is a specific and closed) and I'd like to add Intellisense support. So I guess there are actually two questions:
- is it possible to work with 3rd party editor
- redistribution licensing (royalty free would be great)

    Hi Miha,

    Sorry to say, SQL Prompt has hooks specifically for SQL Server Management Studio and Query Analyzer, so it would be difficult to integrate into another text editor. I think you could do this sort of thing with SQL Prompt v2, because it was implemented essentially as a keylogger and you could pretty much plug it into anything.

    I don't know if you can still get the "old" SQL Prompt, though.
