CharFormat2 in RichEdit

I was looking through RICHEDIT.H when I cam across the Type Definition for CharFormat2.

Is this any different from CharFormat which you normally use in a RichEditCtrl/View?

If so...do I use this the same as I would use CharFormat or do I need a later version of the control?

I have VC++ 5.0

I would say, since I am unable to find any actual use of it, that it is for a later version of the Rich Edit Control.  Possibly a new one is shipped with IE4.0?

If you search Microsoft's site for 'Rich Edit Version 2.0' it gives you some info about it including the new structures and that it is included with NT4.0 and works on Win95.

However it doesn't say how to get it working with RichEditView and RichEditDoc.

 Read further in the Richedit.h file.

   You will find that the RichEdit control Version 2.0 uses those structures for advanced effects.

   If you want to experiment with the RE V2  control, you must first call a LoadLibrary() on the "RICHED20.DLL" file to make the new window class available.

   It has got some nice features, like the built-in multiple level Undo/Redo (with "Names", which tell you want action is to be Undone/Redone), and other neat stuff.

   You can derive a class from CRichEdit and make changes to the wrapper functions to use the new structure(s) and create new functions to support the new features.

   This is something that I am working on, and it will be posted on my webpage, at some point in the feature.

   Peace!
