SearchTextW that returns bounds or itemindex instead of selecting

Post by jgkoehn »

Greetings Sergey,
Is there a SearchTextW or something similar that returns bounds instead of selecting. I am working on a search dialog that deals with formatting and other things. What I need to do basically is get the item in search bounds or its index and test it against various font styles etc.

Is the text formatted? Selection requires formatted document.

It is formatted
SearchTextW is working well the only thing is I would like to not have to do RichViewEdit.Deselect is all instead I would rather know the bounds
StartItem, StartOffs, EndItem, EndOffs. If I do some more research I may be able to build this.

Sorry, I misread the question.

Currently, SearchText can only select text. But I think it makes sense to add OnTextFound event, where you can do custom processing instead of selecting.
I'll include it in the next update (not in the today's update). Let me know if you need it urgently.

Not urgent but it will help with a Search and Replace like MS Word has that is also format based. Thanks!

I implemented OnTextFound event. If you want, I can send changed files to you by email.
A release will be later.
