I want to create incremental search (similar to the visual studio editor) option for CRicheditview in my application.
 
Any one can help me? How could I do that?

My solution - You should set the caret back to the first character position for the next search.
BOOL CSimpleFinderView::Findx(CString str)
{
  SendMessage(EM_SETSEL,0,0);
  return FindText(str,FALSE,FALSE,FALSE);
}

Solution 2

BOOL CSimpleFinderView::Findx(CString str)
{
       return FindText(str,FALSE,FALSE,FALSE);
}
 

I have wrote above function in view class derived from CRicheditview. I will call this function from mainfrm class.
 
Consider following example text present view.
 

"function is not working, so remove the the function"
 
To find the word "function", I traps characters at mainfrm pretranslate message and calling above function for every key pressing.
 
Keypressed | Result
--------------------
f | function is not working, so remove the the function
fu | function is not working, so remove the the function
 
Findtext() selecting the second occurrence of the word function. But it suppose to be first one.
I feel this CRichEditView::FindText() will not help
 
Can u suggest any other solution?
