Actual linenumber in RichEdit.

How do I find out in which linenumber my cursor is placed in a TRichEdit?

I need it, because I need to insert some text with the

Richedit1.lines.insert(<here>,'MyString');

If you have better idéas for inserting text from the cursor, that will be an answer too.

Thanks.

hi retep,

there are a api function, which can be used

or use richedit1.seltext := YournewText + #10;

Use the CaretPos property of the RichEdit component. In your case your call to Insert needs to be

RichEdit1.Lines.Insert(RichEdit1.CaretPos.Y, 'MyString');

Here it is:

function GetRow: Longint;
begin
  with reEdit do
    Result := Perform(EM_LINEFROMCHAR, -1, 0)+1;
end;


Yours,

  Richedit1.Lines.Insert(Richedit1.Perform(EM_LINEFROMCHAR,Richedit1.Selstart,0),'Thats the New Line');
