How can I add or paste graphical characters into a RichEdit ? Graphical characters could be borders coming from Word 97 and should be loaded at runtime from an existing file.
Thanks

Hi prt,

 I'm not sure, but I think this is not possible in TRichEdit... TRichEdit is very limited!! Or, you should have a font which represents these graphics.

hoy, prt!

if you mean those borders from a table (or underlinings or something like that) - i think you're having a problem, because these are word format commands, not characters in what table so ever (ouch). what i meant to say is, there's no character code corresponding to an "underline" or "sideframe" or anything like that when a table frame's to be built.

regs,
Black Death.
