  • Don't know about FastColoredTextBox, but it seems to me that you're running into a circle by assigning the value of the property ServiceColors of your fastColoredTextBox1 object to itself. What do you want to achieve by that?

  • There is no such thing as a FastColoredTextBox in Winforms. If this is a third party component then you'll need to post your question in their forums. Given the line it appears there is a color with the ServiceColors property implementation. Of course you didn't post the stack trace so we have no idea what that might be. If this is your own control then please post the code for that property.

  • Greetings Ahron.

    If FastColoredTextBox is a class you have control over, check that the property ServiceColors is not returning itself. This sort of error can happen when, for example, there is a mixup between upper and lower case letters.

    FastColoredTextBoxNS serviceColors; // Note the lower case  's' in serviceColors.
    // The property get and set should use a lower case 's' to match the backing variable, but if it doesn't...
    public FastColoredTextBoxNS ServiceColors{ get {return ServiceColors;} set{ServiceColors = value;}}
    //... the property will call itself in an infinite loop and exhaust the stack.
