How can I get the current character index, i.e., the index of the caret in CRichEditCtrl? There are functions to get current line index, no of lines but I do not find one to get caret index. Any help?

Use GetSel:

long nStartPose, nEndPos;
m_ctlRichEd.void GetSel( nStartPos, nEndPos );

if ( nStartPos == nEndPos } {
        MessageBox("There no selection, only a caret");
} else {
        MessageBox("some text is selected");
}

Use
m_ctlRichEd.void GetSel( nStartPos, nEndPos );
if the values of nStartPos and nEndPos are both equal, then nStartPos or nEndPos will give you 'the index of the caret in CRichEditCtrl'.

One typo.  Use:

m_ctlRichEd.GetSel( nStartPos, nEndPos );

chhakuli,

Why did you accept pagladasus'c comment as the answer?  It is very obviously a copy of my comment.  It even has the exact same typographical error!

This was the result of a database error, and points may not have properly gone to you .  Can you check for us?

We may need to do this question again if you can't see the points.
