On a previous post here, I was complaining about the impossibility of getting or setting the location of the cursor or the selected text. If I wan't to be able to set or get it, I must code my own implementation of a edit field, right? The problem is that I can't even set text colors (to simulate selections), in COFFEE.
Would it be possible to code such a thing, in COFFEE? Is it a utopic task?
Thank you in advance for any response.

I guess you are creating something from the GeUserArea class. In that case, you can (I think) choose the color with

I need an edit field for entering code (a custom scripting language). So, I need a mini-text editor. I want to be able to search and replace it there and also know at what line and column my cursor is.

I wouldn't recommend coding a text editor, neither in C.O.F.F.E.E. nor in C++. The easiest way to get what you want would probably be to use C++ to load a platform dependent interface. (Note that "easiest" doesn't imply "easy".)

Actually, I would only need to have a way to get and set the selection inside a field. Its a shame that something as simple as that wasn't implemented either in COFFEE or C++
Is there any way to run an external application from COFFEE?

I see that I can use
[bool] GeExeuteProgram([Filename] program, [Filename] file);
I will give it a try.
