Which Component is used for text editors edit window?
Posted on 2002-04-06
I have 1 question related to VB 6.0
Which Component is mostly used for creating a Text editor's edit window(where files are displayed and edited). For example to enable syntax highlighting. Textbox cannot be used because of its size limit and also it doesn't allow highlighting particular words. Should I use Rich Text Box? Do most editors like Editplus, Ultraedit etc. use richtext box and save file as plain text? Or they use some commercial component for this purpose (which I cannot use). But I think rtf cannot be used to show line numbers on left side and to disable selection of these line nos when selecting text; as these editors allow.
