Hi!
Can anybody tell me how I can receive the number of the line that is displayed on the top of a RichEdit component. I would also be satisfied with getting the character position (like StartSel does) of this first line, because all the lines have identical length, and so it would only require a simple division.
Regards, Hamilton.

If you are going to be clicking on the position at the top of the richedit control you can use this code to get the line number:

var
  Point : TPoint;
begin
  Point := RichEdit1.CaretPos;
  ShowMessage(IntToStr(Point.X)+ ' ' +IntToStr(Point.Y));
end;

Try this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  VisibleLine : Integer;
begin
  VisibleLine := RichEdit1.Perform(EM_GETFIRSTVISIBLELINE, 0 , 0);
  ShowMessage(IntToStr(VisibleLine));
end;
