You mean if there is an error in spelling or if they choose to underline a word.

Here is an example of what you want.... Hope it helps... ;->

procedure UnderLine(RichEdit : TRichEdit; sWord : string);
var
  nPos : Integer;
  OldStart;
begin
  nPos := Pos(sWord, RichEdit.Text);
  OldStart := RichEdit.SelStart;
  if nPos > 0 then begin
    RichEdit.SetFocus;
    RichEdit.SelStart := nPos - 1;
    RichEdit.SelLength := Length(sWord);
    RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style := RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style + [fsUnderline];
  end;
  RichEdit.SelStart := OldStart;
end;

//Example call...

procedure TForm1.FormClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  UnderLine(RichEdit1, 'Hello');
end;

Here is something.....

procedure UnderLine(RichEdit : TRichEdit; sWord : string);
var
  nPos, OldStart, Len : Integer;
begin
  nPos := Pos(sWord, RichEdit.Text);
  OldStart := RichEdit.SelStart;
  RichEdit.SetFocus;
  while nPos > 0 do begin
    RichEdit.SelStart := nPos - 1;
    RichEdit.SelLength := Length(sWord);
    RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style := RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style + [fsUnderline];
    RichEdit.SelLength := 0;
    RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style := RichEdit.SelAttributes.Style - [fsUnderline];
    Len := Pos(sWord, Copy(RichEdit.Text, (nPos-1) + Length(sWord), Length(RichEdit.Text)));
    if Len <> 0 then
        nPos := nPos + (Len+1)
    else
        break;
  end;
  RichEdit.SelStart := OldStart;
end;

Example Call:

Underline(RichEdit1, 'Hello');
