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;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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');
