I am using the RxRichEdit control. Everything works fine except that if the control is read only, the OLE object can still be activated or edited. What can be the problem and what callback I should change so that it can't be activated or edited or context menu produced on it?

Hi

Change the following lines:

procedure TRxCustomRichEdit.PopupVerbClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  ReObject: TReObject;
begin
  if (Assigned(FRichEditOle)) and (ReadOnly=false) then begin
    FillChar(ReObject, SizeOf(ReObject), 0);
    ReObject.cbStruct := SizeOf(ReObject);

(add the (ReadOnly=false))

hope this helps

regards
rene

Taking hint from your code, I was also able to remove the popup menu. But, the object can still be selected, resized and opened for editing with double-click. How to disable that in read only mode?

Thanks.

i think open/edit can be prevented by add/change the following lines:

procedure TRxCustomRichEdit.WMRButtonUp(var Message: TWMLButtonUP);
begin
if (stObject in SelectionType) and (ReadOnly=True) then
    Message.Msg:=0;
inherited;
end;

procedure TRxCustomRichEdit.WMLButtonDblClk(var Message: TWMLButtonDblClk);
begin
if (stObject in SelectionType) and (ReadOnly=True) then
    Message.Msg:=0;
inherited;
end;

but it's still possible to resize&select the object....
