Hi All!

Need help on Rich Edit control..

I'm working on VT100 terminal escape sequences..

According to escape sequences cursor need to jump to that location..

[ - Esc code
23 - is the column no
10 - is the row no

So if i receive  this sequence directly i need to place the cursor at 23 col and 10 row position in Rich Edit control..

Pls let me know which API function can work.. send some sample code will be most appreciated.

Solution 1

have a look at EM_EXSETSEL[^] and EM_EXGETSEL[^]

I think you're on a hiding to nothing trying to write an emulator in richedit IMO

Did u tried with EM_EXSETSEL.. will it place the cursor if it receives the sequence at 23 col and 10 row ?
EM_EXSETSEL it selects range of characters... but where it will place the cursor ?
