WM_GETTEXT message

Return to index

I'm writing an application where part of it is required to get and set the

text in the currently focussed text box.  The text box will most likely be

in another application, so obviously I can't use native calls on it.

To get the data out of most text boxes, one can post the message WM_GETTEXT

and it'll return up to 64K of the contents of the box.  However, posting

WM_GETTEXT to a TRichViewEdit does not return anything.

Is there any message that has been set up on TRichViewEdit so that I can

get its contents from another application?

Thanks for your help,
