Hi

You use the EM_LINEFROMCHAR message.  For example, if you have a TRichEdit called rchTest, you could do the following:
  LineNum := rchTest.Perform(EM_LINEFROMCHAR, -1, 0);
(0 = 1st line, 1 = 2nd line, etc.)

For any character position, the following will return the line number:
  LineNum := rchTest.Perform(EM_LINEFROMCHAR, CharIndex, 0);

Similarly, the following will return the character index (like SelStart) for the 1st character on a line:
  CharIx := rchTest.Perform(EM_LINEINDEX, LineNum, 0);

Cheers,
JB
