Yes it is, but the points for the answer if FAR to low =)

What you need to do is on the onkeydown event from the trichedit

in that event write a procedure. You need 1 global variable and then sumthing like:

Var GlobalVar : String;

Begin
 If Key = ' ' Then Begin
                    CheckMacro(GlobalVar);
                    GlobalVar := '';
                   End;
 If Key = #13 Then Begin
                    CheckMacro(GlobalVar);
                    GlobalVar := '';
                   End;
End;

Procedure CheckMacro(Var S : String);
Begin
 S := UpperCase(S);
 If S = 'MACRO1' Then Begin
                       Form1.RichEdit1.Lines.Add('MACRO 1 EXECUTED');
                      End;
 ..............ETC...............
End;

hi,

is it possible to make a basic demo, with a small macro and to show how it is executed, would be far more informing to me.
(Never used macro before) and mail it to hellfire@unforgettable.com
or put the whole code here
Thanks. If you still need more points then say so.
