TRichEdit-problem

Hi.

Sorry, I dont have any more points. If you know a good answer to my question please notify my and i will by some points to give you!!!!! Thanx.

I have a TRichEdit (RichEdit1) that I load large files into. I want to examin if the format of these files are correct. I do that by running through the file line by line.
My problem is that...

var
  St1 : string;
begin
  St1 := RichEdit1.Lines[no];
...

...takes more and more time as no gets higher. I work with very large files and the time used on the formatchecking is just to long. I have tried to use the Text-property and some pointer-gym. istead (having a pointer pointing to the beginning of the next line and just create the string from the pointer) and that worked fine in the beginning, but the i got in some problems doing that (Very, very, very strange problems).
Now i want to know if any of you guys know how to work around my problem (Reading through all the lines of a large TRichEdit, without using alot of time)?
Anyone one know of a desant of TRichEdit that might have some functionality that I could use?

Thanx - Steff

TRichEdit (Delphi2) don't have TEXT property and lines is TStrings so works very fast. You can't made this faster.

I have Delphi2 and I also have a Text-property to work with. I might have a older version of Delphi2????

Hi Stef.

Ok. When You send me example i just know what you need. TRich edit have'nt Text property but you can retrive the text with send message.


{ Here is stupid example but i think so this can help you }

....
{declaration's}
....

uses
  RichEdit, ....{other unit's}  ;

procedure AnyName;
var
  L: Integer;
  TextRange : TTextRange;
  i,k : integer;
  st : string;
begin
  TextRange.chrg.cpMin := 0;
  TextRange.chrg.cpMax := 10239;
  GetMem( TextRange.lpStrText, 10240 );
  L := SendMessage(RichEdit1.Handle, EM_GETTEXTRANGE, 0, Longint(@TextRange));
  for i:=1 to (l div 10) do
  begin
    st := '';
    for k:=1 to 10 do
      st := st + TextRange.lpStrText[10*(i-1)+k-1];
    Memo1.Lines.Add(st);
  end;
  FreeMem( TextRange.lpStrText, 10240 );
end;


TTextRange structure is defined in RichEdit.Pas unit and Win32.HLP describes more about TRichEdit control.

type
  TCharRange = record
    cpMin: Longint;         { number of first char to retrieve }
    cpMax: LongInt;        { number of last char to retrieve }
  end;

  TTextRange = record
    chrg: TCharRange;
    lpstrText: PChar;      { buffer where data will be copied }
  end;
