    If I understand your requirement properly, then you need to have custom text (eg "//") whenever the end user presses Space key. If it is so, then you may use C1Editor's KeyDown event and set Handled to true, this will indicate that we are manually handling this event. Then append text to C1Editor's Text as follows:
    e.Handled = true;
    string text = "//";
    c1Editor1.Text = c1Editor1.Text + text;
    c1Editor1.Select(c1Editor1.Text.Length, 0);

    I have attached a sample application for your reference.

    Let me know if I misinterpret your requirement.

    Thanks & Regards
