I need to be able to grab the mouse move events while the user is moving over a CRichEditCtrl, and determine the character position of the mouse.  In other words, the OnMouseMove() method tells me a CPoint, where the mouse pointer is, and I need to convert this over to a
character position within the control.  

Anyone any ideas

Cheers, but I gotta a problem with EM_CHARFROMPOS, it just give me zero.

Code below, thanks

CResultsDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
  if (NULL != m_pToolTip)
      m_pToolTip->RelayEvent(pMsg);
     
  if (pMsg->message==WM_MOUSEMOVE && 
     pMsg->hwnd==m_note.m_hWnd )
  {
     long res;
         
     res = m_note.SendMessage(EM_CHARFROMPOS,0,(long)
                                  &pMsg->pt);

         
     //RES ALWAYS ZERO!

Hi!
IMHO you must convert pt to the RichEdit client coords.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
