An editing-style method for changing properties of the ItemNo-th item of RichView, if this item is "inserted control".

procedure SetControlInfoEd(ItemNo: Integer;

  const AName: TRVUnicodeString; AVAlign: TRVVAlign;

  const ATag: TRVTag);

(changed in version 18)


ItemNo index of the item. The item must be of control type (rvsComponent), otherwise the method raises ERichViewError exception. Items are indexed from 0 to ItemCount-1, GetItemStyle returns type of item.

Items of subdocuments (table cells) are not included in the items range of the main document. For items in cells, activate inplace-editor, select the proper item in the cell  (SelSelectionBounds), and call SetControlInfoEd of this inplace-editor. Alternatively, you can use SetCurrentControlInfo.

AName name of the item, any string without line break (CR, LF) characters. It can also be set using SetItemTextEdW method. This is not a Name property of the control!

AVAlign – vertical alignment of this item, see TRVVAlign for possible options.

ATag tag of the item. Do not confuse with Tag property of the control! You can use value returned by GetControlInfo or GetItemTag for this item. The tag can also be set by SetItemTagEd method.


Method type: editstyle editing-style (unlike SetControlInfo).

Additional item properties are assigned by the methods SetItemExtraIntPropertyEd and SetItemExtraStrPropertyEd.

When possible, use SetCurrentControlInfo instead of this method.
