I have a MDI application with MDIchild form that has two richedit controls. On my machine it works fine but the same program on another machine behaves strange. If i minimize the child and then maximize it again all text in the richedit controls are invisible. But I can still copy text. And if I manually resize the form the text gets visible.
So my question is - Is there a cure for this, or can I do something to catch this and make sure the problem does not show.

Hmmm.... You could try RichEdit1.Invalidate when the form is restored... Might help.

When you resize the richedit, parent control have to send a EM_SETEDITRECT message to redefine the editing area. I recommend you to take a look at the RichEdit demo that comes with Delphi 2.

Hope this help
