Need help in developing an editor in VB.net

P: n/a
TC
I have to develop a Movement Notation editor in Vb.net. The salient feature
of this editor vis a vis a standard text editor is the following:

1. The characters can be entered in any direction i.e left to right as well
as top to bottom.

This Movement Notation editing, till now, has been done by hand. I have
uploaded a few manuscripts for your reference at:
http://c.discussions.googlepages.com/home

As you can see, the characters can form a variety of combinations.

So, what construct in VB.net would allow me such a free form writing.
Basically the user should be able to type something at any location. Also,
how do I navigate within a cell (the square boxes in the manuscript) ? Once
I am able to navigate, I can use the Microsoft GDI routines to print the
character at the current cursor position (x,y).

Can anyone help.

Thanks

Maybe you can get help in the drawing newsgroups, I doubt that you get it
completely here.

Cor,

Does there exist any construct/control in VB such that whenever the user
double clicks within it, I am able to retrieve the (x,y) coordinate of the
'clicked' point.

If that's possible, then my task becomes a lot easier. I can make the user
enter the character in a dedicated text box, and then double click on the
exact point within the cell. After the double click, I can use DrawString()
to print the character at the desired location.

Thanks,
TC

TC,

That is just in the mouse events of the form.

I think that a lot that you have asked is in this sample

I hope this helps,
