Overscores in RichText format
Posted on 2002-05-20
(actually a VC++ app, but most RichText questions seem to wind up here)
I need to be able to put a line *over* a character in RichText. I find it somewhat bizarre that this isn't just standard; according to the MSDN docs you can do underlines, double underlines, *wavy* underlines, dot-dot-dash underlines, but overlines aren't mentioned.
But no use crying about that, I guess. Surely there must be a way around it. Can I, say, put a dash as a superscript, with a negative space before it? How do you do negative spaces in Rich Text, if it's possible?
To clarify, what I'm interested in is how to produce the ASCII code for the rich text; e.g., to put an underline
before a character x, you'd do \ul x \ul0. I want to
know how to do an overline.
