An editing-style method for changing properties of the ItemNo-th item of RichView, if this item is a hotspot.

procedure SetHotspotInfoEd(ItemNo: Integer; const AName: TRVUnicodeString;

  AImageIndex,  AHotImageIndex: Integer;

  AImageList: TCustomImageList; const ATag: TRVTag);

(changed in version 18)


ItemNo index of the item. The item must be of hotspot type (rvsHotspot), 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 SetHotspotInfoEd of this inplace-editor. Alternatively, you can use SetCurrentHotspotInfo.

AName name of hotspot, any string without line break (CR, LF) characters. It can also be set using SetItemTextEdW method.

AImageList not used, reserved, set it to nil.

AImageIndex – index of image in image list. It can also be set using SetItemExtraIntPropertyExEd method.

AHotImageIndex – index of "hot" image in image list. This image is displayed under the mouse pointer (in TRichView, or in TRichViewEdit in hypertext mode), or when user moves the caret to this item (in TRichViewEdit). It can also be set using SetItemExtraIntPropertyExEd method.

ATag tag of the item. You can use value returned by GetHotspotInfo or GetItemTag for this item. The tag can also be set by SetItemTagEd method.


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

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

When possible, use SetCurrentHotspotInfo instead of this method.
