    Lets say I have a MULTILINEEDIT field.
    How can I know the start and length of the selection (selected text)?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    This is, aparently, a very trivial think. I can't believe Maxon forgot to add this!!

    This isn't possible. (And if it was, it would probably be C++ only... ;-)

    This is a VERY BIG ommition. It should be very easy to code that, to include it in COFFEE. That means I will have to create my very own MULTILINEEDIT, if possible at all :-(

    Hi,

    is there a way in C++ (maybe catching a message or anything) to determine the current cursor position in a MulitLineEdit element?

    Thanks!

    It seems a hack would be to catch the 'stat' message and parse the position from "Line 1, Pos. 2". You would have to watch out for other languages, so the best is probably to remove all non-digits.

    Anyway, that hack will only give us the insertion point location. What if I have some sequence of characters selected? And how to set it instead of just reading?
    This is a major shortcoming on the edit fields :(
