Can a PDF be placed in a RichView?

I see you have AddPicture() and InsertRTFFromFileEd() available, but is there any way to draw other formats on the canvas, mainly PDF, but also DOC and DOCX formats (even if the PC has to run Acrobat or Microsoft Word or some other library that you recommend to actually interpret the file)?

Is there a RichView->BeginUpdate ?

A test demo I have been working on has very poor performance and I am wondering if it wasting a lot of time drawing on the screen prematurely while it is being calculated (as would be handled by a BeginUpdate() and EndUpdate() sequence), but I don't see that as being available for RichView. On my la...

RichViewEdit table cell looses size when RichViewEdit is resized horizontally where different LeftMargins were specified

Ran into a problem with RichViewEdit. The code below draws tables of various sizes with different LeftMargin's specified. All tables have 1 row. The first tables has 3 columns with LeftMargin=0. The next has 4 columns with LeftMargin=40. The next has 5 columns with LeftMargin=80. The next has 6 colu...

Re: Styles: rvstkParaText vs rvstkPara vs rvstkText

Thank you. That was extremely helpful, but my example code didn't go far enough. Apparently paragraphs are slightly different and I have another quick question related to styles. So I have modified your sample answer to add in a paragraph with the following requirement: there are 6 extra units above...

Styles: rvstkParaText vs rvstkPara vs rvstkText

I am struggling to understand where to use these constants. It is obvious Para vs Text, but it seems like "Normal" template style would be both (i.e., that should be ParaText). However, I have gotten "wrong kind of StyleTemplate parent" run time errors if I try to derive a text style from a Normal t...

Thank you. This is extremely useful and very quick "get up to speed" demo for exactly what I needed without reading tons of documentation with minimal code.

Re: Embedding TRichView in TRichViewEdit

Attached is a very simple project that was going to make everything I needed to know about the TRichView component clear to me, but I need some help understanding a few things. This is what got me thinking that buttons did not work for TRichView (because it always adds to origin of the RichView cont...

Re: Embedding TRichView in TRichViewEdit

My first posting to your website a few weeks ago involved using TRichView as a substitute for a local content browser with buttons to hide/show text. I liked you answer well enough to purchase the license and am still working on that project. TRichView apparently doesn't allow buttons, as far as I h...

Embedding TRichView in TRichViewEdit

Is it possible to embed a TRichView in a TRichViewEdit? I have tired everything I can think of and I can't get Align to work to fill the parent. Here is what I have tried: void __fastcall TForm1::btnEmbedClick(TObject *Sender) { TRichView * rv = new TRichView(RichViewEdit1); rv->Parent = RichViewEdi...

Code for table

I am trying to figure out code for a table and tried the following: TRVTableItemInfo * table; table = new TRVTableItemInfo(1, 3, RichView1->RVData); table->Cells[0][0]->Clear(); table->Cells[0][0]->AddNL("One", 1, 1); RichView1->AddItem("A", table); table->Cells[0][1]->Clear(); table->Cells[0][1]->A...

Could TRichEdit substitute for a local browser?

I have a project that a prototype was created as a webpage, but ran into the problem that the TBrowser control in C++ Builder only allows 1 instance in each project and this needs to be multiple pages, each with their own browser. The fundamental requirements are: - Works like an unlimited length do...
