Fellow VB Programmers,

I am using the RichTextBox control and would like to know
how to move the a ListBox underneath the current line,
like in VB when you dim a value as, a ComboBox or ListBox appears.

For the sake of this question,
Please insert the RTF Control and a ListBox onto a form.
Let the Listbox.Visisble = False and insert the Following code
into your sample...

Private Sub RichTextBox1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

Select Case Chr$(KeyAscii)
case "!"
      List1.Visible = True
      ' And the Code to move it here...
case else
end select
end sub

When you press the ! key, it will show you the ListBox.

Now, in order to properly answer this Question,
have the ListBox popup right underneath your current position
in the RichTextBox control. Left & Top.

Thank you.

Private Type POINTAPI
        x As Long
        y As Long
End Type

Private Declare Function GetCaretPos Lib "user32" (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long

  Dim ptX As POINTAPI
  Dim lngRet As Long  
    If KeyAscii = 33 Then
      List1.Visible = True
      lngRet = GetCaretPos(ptX)
      List1.Top = Screen.TwipsPerPixelY * ptX.y + RichTextBox1.Top
      List1.Left = Screen.TwipsPerPixelX * ptX.x + RichTextBox1.Left
    end if
