How to replace WM_HSCROLL handler for TRxRichEdit?

Hi,

My problem is as follows:
I have 2 TRxRichEdit controls on my form and I need to link them so that if user scrolls contents of one of them (using scrollbar) horizintally then contents of another TRxRichEdit gets scrolled too.

May be someone have some sample code which solves this or similar problem?..

Thanks in advance, amv.

unit SyncMemo;
 
interface
 
uses
  Windows, Messages, Classes, SysUtils, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,   StdCtrls;
 
const
  {User messages to use if buddy is TSyncMemo }
  UM_BUDDYHSCROLL = WM_USER + 1111;
  UM_BUDDYVSCROLL = WM_USER + 1112;
type
 
  TSyncMemo = class(TMemo)
  private
    { Private declarations }
    { Handlers for windows messages }
    procedure WMVScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
      message WM_VSCROLL;
    procedure WMHScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
      message WM_HSCROLL;
    procedure UMBuddyHScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
      message UM_BUDDYHSCROLL;
    procedure UMBuddyVScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
      message UM_BUDDYVSCROLL;
 
    Procedure SetScrollControl( aScrollControl: TCustomMemo );
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
    FInBuddyScroll: Boolean;
    FBuddy: TCustomMemo;
    FSyncStyle: TScrollStyle;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  published
    { Published declarations }
 
    property SyncStyle: TScrollStyle read FSyncStyle write FSyncStyle;     property ScrollControl: TCustomMemo read FBuddy write SetScrollControl;   end;
 
procedure Register;
 
implementation
 
procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Test', [TSyncMemo]);
end;
 
{ TSyncMemo }
 
procedure TSyncMemo.UMBuddyHScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  FInBuddyScroll:= True;
  try
    msg.result := Perform( WM_HSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );   finally
    FInBuddyScroll := False;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TSyncMemo.UMBuddyVScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  FInBuddyScroll:= True;
  try
    msg.result := Perform( WM_VSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );   finally
    FInBuddyScroll := False;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TSyncMemo.WMHScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  If not FInBuddyScroll and
    (FSyncStyle In [ssBoth, ssHorizontal]) and
    Assigned( FBuddy )
  Then Begin
    If FBuddy Is TsyncMemo Then
      FBuddy.Perform( UM_BUDDYHSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam )
    Else
      FBuddy.Perform( WM_HSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );
  End;
  inherited;
end;
 
procedure TSyncMemo.WMVScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  If not FInBuddyScroll and
    (FSyncStyle In [ssBoth, ssVertical]) and
    Assigned( FBuddy )
  Then Begin
    If FBuddy Is TsyncMemo Then
      FBuddy.Perform( UM_BUDDYVSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam )
    Else
      FBuddy.Perform( WM_VSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );
  End;
  inherited;
end;
 
Procedure TSyncMemo.SetScrollControl( aScrollControl: TCustomMemo ); Begin
  If (aScrollControl <> FBuddy) and (aScrollControl <> Self) Then     FBuddy := aScrollControl;
End;
 
end.

Hope it helps

this one is best yet ,it is desendant of rxrichedit so can just install and drop 2 on form and set the 2 new propertys
ScrollControl and SyncStyle

as in example at bottom:


unit SyncronizedRxRichEdit;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, RxRichEd;

const
  UM_BUDDYHSCROLL = WM_USER + 1111;
  UM_BUDDYVSCROLL = WM_USER + 1112;

type
  TSyncronizedRxRichEdit = class(TRxRichEdit)
  private
    { Private declarations }
   procedure WMVScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
     message WM_VSCROLL;
   procedure WMHScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
     message WM_HSCROLL;
   procedure UMBuddyHScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
     message UM_BUDDYHSCROLL;
   procedure UMBuddyVScroll( Var msg: TMessage );
     message UM_BUDDYVSCROLL;
   Procedure SetScrollControl( aScrollControl: TSyncronizedRxRichEdit );
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
    FInBuddyScroll: Boolean;
    FBuddy: TSyncronizedRxRichEdit;
    FSyncStyle: TScrollStyle;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  published
    { Published declarations }
  property SyncStyle: TScrollStyle read FSyncStyle write FSyncStyle;
  property ScrollControl: TSyncronizedRxRichEdit read FBuddy write SetScrollControl;
    end;

procedure Register;

implementation

procedure TSyncronizedRxRichEdit.UMBuddyHScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  FInBuddyScroll:= True;
  try
    msg.result := Perform( WM_HSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );   finally
    FInBuddyScroll := False;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TSyncronizedRxRichEdit.UMBuddyVScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  FInBuddyScroll:= True;
  try
    msg.result := Perform( WM_VSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );   finally
    FInBuddyScroll := False;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TSyncronizedRxRichEdit.WMHScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  If not FInBuddyScroll and
    (FSyncStyle In [ssBoth, ssHorizontal]) and
    Assigned( FBuddy )
  Then Begin
    If FBuddy Is TSyncronizedRxRichEdit Then
      FBuddy.Perform( UM_BUDDYHSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam )
    Else
      FBuddy.Perform( WM_HSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );
  End;
  inherited;
end;

procedure TSyncronizedRxRichEdit.WMVScroll(var msg: TMessage);
begin
  If not FInBuddyScroll and
    (FSyncStyle In [ssBoth, ssVertical]) and
    Assigned( FBuddy )
  Then Begin
    If FBuddy Is TSyncronizedRxRichEdit Then
      FBuddy.Perform( UM_BUDDYVSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam )
    Else
      FBuddy.Perform( WM_VSCROLL, msg.wparam, msg.lparam );
  End;
  inherited;
end;

Procedure TSyncronizedRxRichEdit.SetScrollControl( aScrollControl: TSyncronizedRxRichEdit ); Begin
  If (aScrollControl <> FBuddy) and (aScrollControl <> Self) Then     FBuddy := aScrollControl;
End;

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Inthe.Future', [TSyncronizedRxRichEdit]);
end;

end.





example of use :
drop 2 on a form and a button and:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
SyncronizedRxRichEdit1.SyncStyle := ssBoth;
SyncronizedRxRichEdit1.ScrollControl := SyncronizedRxRichEdit2;
SyncronizedRxRichEdit2.SyncStyle := ssBoth;
SyncronizedRxRichEdit2.ScrollControl := SyncronizedRxRichEdit1;
end;


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
SyncronizedRxRichEdit1.Lines.loadfromfile('c:\autoexec.bat');
SyncronizedRxRichEdit2.lines.loadfromfile('c:\autoexec.bat');
end;
