I have a big file (It has about 1290 lines). I want to copy just some lines of the file in a RichEdit. How to do it so that it is fast? And how to do to seek quickly for a word in the file?

To search a RichEdit see:

Q.10060068

If you want to search the RTF or TXT file you can use the following method:

1) Open the file
2) Read the entire file into a string usiong BlockRead
3) Use the POS function to find your text in this string

This is a very fast thing. If you want a case-insensitive search you can:

1) uppercase the searchstring
2) uppercase the entire text string
3) then use the POS function

To copy some lines of an RTF into a RicxhEdit can be a rather difficult task, because you have to determine the end of lines in the RTF with all the formatting commands inside it. I have the RTF specification but I think it is rather difficult to implement it correctly.

What you can do is loading the entire file in to a non-visible richedit. Copy the lines you want in your visible richedit to the clipboard and past them into the visible RichEdit.

Regards Jacco

good luck
