Rich Text Editor

P: n/a
I found this Rich Text Editor and I've been trying to recreate it in
my own application. I've had trouble with the COMCTL.ImageListCtrl
and the COMCTL.Toolbar to recreate the toolbar. And I've had trouble
with COMCTL.SBarCtrl in recreating the status bar. Does anyone have
any experience with these or know of any website that explaines how to
use these?

I've been working on a prototype to incorporate into my db project at
work and I thought I'd share what I've developed so far, because I've
seen lots of postings requesting information for rich text editing.
My prototype contains 4 tabs on a tabcontrol and each tab has a rich
text field. Enter data in any of the rich text fields and click the
save icon. Then with the cursor in one of the rich text fields, do a
right click and what I have named as my "rtfZoomEditor" pops up with a
number of edit buttons that are similar to MS WordPad. You should be
able to edit and format your text or you can load a different rich
text file into the editor. To place images, just drag them from their
source and drop them in the rich text field. You can also cut and
paste them. I would have left images in this sample, but the file size
is to large to post in a forum. I'm still looking for a spell checker
that works in rich text. Also I think the "Find" button should
highlight all occurances of the word that it has found. I'm still
looking for a way to accomplish that. There are still more rich text
edit commands that are shown in the object browser for "RichTextLib"
that would further enhance this project. If someone can help me with
this I'd appreciate it. My prototype db is located at:

Here's a couple of links with some more samples I've found for those
who are interested.
