How do I trap CRichEditCtrl messages?
Posted on 1999-08-02
I am running VC++ 4.0, Win 98.
I'm something of a newbie and suspect I'm missing something obvious. If not, I'd be glad to increase the points on this.
I have a dialog box with a RichEdit control. I am able to put the text in the control, format it, etc. with no trouble.
When the user clicks (or double-clicks) on a word in the control, I want to trap which word he clicked on and act on it in my dialog class.
I would like to either trap the X, Y point of the mouse cursor when the user clicked, or possibly just grab the word (if he double-clicked on it).
How can I trap LBUTTONDOWN, LBUTTONUP, SELCHANGE, etc. messages in the dialog class, or is there another way to do this?
