Again,

Do you want this:

1 - You have a text in TRichEdit.
2 - When user selects .txt from savedialog you want to save it as text and put extention '.txt' to the end of filename.
3 - When user selects .rtf from savedialog you want to save it as REAL, ACTUAL rich text format and put extention '.rtf' to the end of filename.

Make clear these out please,
I am sure the problem is simple but we can not apprehend

Ok,

If you use Delphi 2.0+

1 - Put TRichEdit instead of TMemo in your MdiClient windows. OK?
2 - When the file extention is '.txt' (I am sure you now this now) save it as following (assume Trichedit instance is Editor)

...
  Editor.PlainText := True;
  Editor.SaveToFile('test.txt');
...
3 - When the file extention is '.rtf'  save it as following (assume Trichedit instance is Editor)

...
  Editor.PlainText := False;
  Editor.SaveToFile('test.rtf');
...

Bye!

That bad news friend?

I wonder, who require you to do such a thing with TMemo? However it can be done for VERY plain text files manually. I once do it, but not that easy. Do you know file operations (opening streams, writing in them, formatting text?)? If not, I am sorry you'd better force the guy gives the project to use rich edit.

Comment Please
Igor
