Hi there,
I have a major problem with something I am working on.  I just can not seem to get it working.  I am trying to reference a TRichEdit Control from a program which I added into my Project.
I am trying to read in each line from the TRichEdit control and Copy it into a temp buffer.
The name of the Richedit control is: Editor and the form it is on is EditForm(This is an MDIChild Form).

Any help would be much appreciated -Cheers
Elmo

You can use Lines Property. Next is code:
....
   char buff[121];
   int n = RichEdit1->Lines->Count;
   for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
     {
       AnsiString ptr = RichEdit1->Lines->Strings[i];
       strcpy(buff, ptr.c_str());
     }
.....

I hope, it helps. Alex

Alex,
      I am still getting the same problem.  I get an Error Number 93
"Undefined Symbol 'Editor'.
      Editor is the Label for the Richedit Control which is located on an MDI Child form
called EditForm
      I have tried includeing the header files of the forms so that it might identify
the control but there is still nothing happening.
      Any Ideas...

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <fstream.h>
#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <vcl.h>
#include "MDIFrame.h"
#include "MDIEdit.h"
#pragma hdrstop


    int Line_Count;
    char Line_Buffer[132];      //Reads in a temp strin - The line
    int Char_Count;

    Line_Count = 0;

    int n = Editor->Lines->Count;

    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        {
        AnsiString ptr = Editor->Lines->Strings[i];
        strcpy(Line_Buffer, ptr.c_str());
        Line_Count++;
        Char_Count = 0;
        Inspect_Line(&Char_Count, Line_Buffer, &Line_Count);
        }

Thanks alot for your Time,

You must simple add in you h/cpp file:
extern *TRichEdit Editor;
(if  Editor is name of you RichEdit
Control)
