Please look at the attached small test project:

attach/PeterPanino/202432875122_TIERichEditFontTest2.zip
76.59 KB

Please follow these steps:

1. Click the 'Add Text' button to add text

2. Select a portion of text to show the IERichEdit Toolbar

3. Click the left-most Font button on the toolbar to show the Font Dialog

4. In the Font Dialog, don't change anything; just click the OK button: This CHANGES THE FONT SIZE of the selected text!

Is this a bug?

Hi Peter

That is a bug in that InsertFormattedText() overload. You can email me for a fix or pass a negative height value to InsertFormattedText().

Hi Nigel,

Thanks a lot! That was one of the most straightforward bug fixes I've ever had!

TIERichEdit font size editing suggestion:



When changing the font size of a text containing multiple text styles (like the one in the example above), only the font size should be changed while keeping the other styles. This is the way a standard text editor would change the font size.

What do you think?

When the user double-clicks a word, the adjacent space character is automatically selected as well:



This sets the ToolBar properties to the character properties of the space character (in the screenshot example above, it sets the font color to BLACK).
But when the user double-clicks a word, she supposedly wants to change the font properties of that word and not the font properties of the space character after the double-clicked word.
So, when double-clicking a word in TIERichEdit, only the double-clicked word should be selected, and not the character after the word.

What do you think?

Hi Peter

That is handled by the RichEdit unfortunately (ECO_AUTOWORDSELECTION).
