TRichEdit Steeings

 I would like to advance the program in the Delphi Demo section for the Text Editer.  The only problem is I have to save the file as a true ASCII file.  (No added Codes)  Is there a way to set Trich to save as a true text file only..

Hi jim,

detect if the TXT type was selected by the user when saving the file and set the PlainText property to true. Example:

  If UpperCase(ExtractFileExt(SaveDialog.FileName)) = '.TXT' Then
     RichEdit1.PlainText := True;
  RichEdit1.Lines.SaveToFile(SaveDialog.FileName);
  RichEdit1.PlainText := False;

Don't forget setting the PlainText to false again.


IHTH,

Itamar
