Ok, I have a RichText Box and I want to locate the Current Row and Column.

Row (Line number) is: RT.LineFromChar(RT.SelStart)

What is the Col (Current Character Position)?  It is not RT.SelStart

Create a loop For..next loop  between the first character and the current character...Using the GetlinefromChar locate the first character in that lines position ... subtract and thats the column value.... Oh and getLinefromchar is the row....

If you need full code... Suggest you increase the points.....But I'll have a look.....

I want full code... I have the points...

BTW, this must be on-the-fly... I am not sure a loop will work...

' Declarations

Dim Row As Long
Dim Col As Long
Dim A As Long
Dim B As Long
Dim C As Long
Dim D As Long
'Code for actual position finding
'The Richtext box is the one you want the position for
' Row & column are the co-ordinates
' the text boxes are for testing only


Private Sub RichTextBox1_SelChange()

A = RichTextBox1.SelStart
D = A

B = RichTextBox1.GetLineFromChar(RichTextBox1.SelStart)
If B = 0 Then
Row = 0
Col = A
Else
Do Until RichTextBox1.GetLineFromChar(A - 1) = B - 1
A = A - 1
Loop
Row = RichTextBox1.GetLineFromChar(A + 1)
Col = D - A
End If
Text3.Text = Row
Text4.Text = Col
End Sub

Have fun.....
