In a Richtext edit control there are methods to select a line and cause the backgound to go black and format controls to colorize the text or set the background color for the entire control but there are no methods or format controls to highlight a single line (i.e. cause the background color to change as in Word for windows rich text mode which allows line hightlighting)
How can a single line of text be highlighted in a richedit control?

How do you highlight a line independent of the current selected text?

I'm a little confused on what you are trying to do.  Are you saying that you want to be able to hilight two sections of the text at a time, so that you can hilight a particular line of text without destroying any selections that already exist?
