I am using RichEdit's SelAtribute funtion to change font colors. Can anyone tell me how to set more than one color in a single line?

? whats the problem

may have this line in richedit

This is a line

use a code like

richedit1.selstart := 0;
richedit1.sellength := 4;
richedit1.selattributes.color := clred;
richedit1.selstart := 10;
richedit1.sellength := 4;
richedit1.selattributes.color := clblue;

now you will have 'This' in red and 'line' in blue the rest remains in the default color usual black

(that was just from head, syntax errors possible)

as working sample (tested)

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  richedit1.lines.clear;
  richedit1.lines.add('This is a line');
  richedit1.selstart := 0;
  richedit1.sellength := 4;
  richedit1.selattributes.color := clred;
  richedit1.selstart := 10;
  richedit1.sellength := 4;
  richedit1.selattributes.color := clblue;
  richedit1.SelStart := 0;
  richedit1.Sellength := 0;
end;
