Here is something i got from a newsgroup a while ago..

void __fastcall TRichEditPlus::CreateParams(Controls::TCreateParams&Params){
      const char RichEditModuleName[] = "RICHED20.DLL";      long int OldError;
      OldError = SetErrorMode(SEM_NOOPENFILEERRORBOX);
      FLibHandle = (int) LoadLibrary(RichEditModuleName);
      if (FLibHandle < HINSTANCE_ERROR) FLibHandle = 0;      SetErrorMode(OldError);
//      TRichEdit::CreateParams(Params);      TCustomMemo::CreateParams(Params);
//      CreateSubClass(Params, "RICHEDIT");      CreateSubClass(Params, RICHEDIT_CLASS);
      Params.Style = Params.Style |            (HideScrollBars ? 0 : ES_DISABLENOSCROLL) |
            (HideSelection ? 0 : ES_NOHIDESEL);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
// free the library on destroy (actually, it will not unload until last
// TRichEditPlus instance is destroyed)//
void __fastcall TRichEditPlus::DestroyWnd(void){      if (FRichEditOle) {
            delete FRichEditOle;            FRichEditOle = 0;            }      TRichEdit::DestroyWnd();
      if (FLibHandle != 0) FreeLibrary((void*) FLibHandle);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
bool __fastcall TRichEditPlus::GetCanUndo(void){
      return ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_CANUNDO, 0, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
bool __fastcall TRichEditPlus::GetCanRedo(void){
      return ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_CANREDO, 0, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
bool TRichEditPlus::Undo(void){      // returns zero on failure
      return ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_UNDO, 0, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
bool TRichEditPlus::Redo(void){      // returns zero on failure
      return ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_REDO, 0, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TRichEditPlus::SetUndoLimit(int limit){
      // returns number actually set -- may be smaller than request
      FUndoLimit = ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_SETUNDOLIMIT, limit, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void TRichEditPlus::StopGroupTyping(void){
      // forces new group for undo -- cannot fail
      ::SendMessage(Handle, EM_STOPGROUPTYPING, 0, 0);}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
// build a string of text representing the nature of the next undo/redo//
static const char *UndoNames[] = {
      "Cannot ", " Typing", " Delete", " Drop Object", " Cut", " Paste"      };
