I have a webbrowser on my form, wich is in design mode, and when I press the return button, it makes a double line break instead of a single one, except when I press  Shift+return.

How can I get the webbrowser to do a <br> instead of <p> in the HTML code when the user press the return button?

hi,
webbrowser in design mode?im guessing your using dhtmledit or pagedesigner

well this is standard behavior as in ms frontpage etc but you can workaround it like:


global vars:

FShiftKeyIsDown : Boolean
FShiftKeyIsDown  := False;


procedure TFormNewMessage.DHTMLEditonkeydown(Sender: TObject);
begin
if DHTMLEdit.DOM.parentWindow.event.keyCode = VK_RETURN then
 begin
   if FShiftKeyIsDown = False then
   begin
     DHTMLEdit.DOM.parentWindow.event.returnvalue := false;  
     KEYBD_EVENT(VK_SHIFT, MapVirtualKey(VK_SHIFT,0),0 ,0);  
     KEYBD_EVENT(VK_RETURN, MapVirtualKey(VK_RETURN,0),0,0);  
     FShiftKeyIsDown := True;
   end;
 end
 else
 if FShiftKeyIsDown then
   DHTMLEdit.DOM.parentWindow.event.returnvalue := false;  
end;

procedure TFormNewMessage.DHTMLEditonkeyup(Sender: TObject);
begin
 if FShiftKeyIsDown then
 begin
   KEYBD_EVENT(VK_SHIFT, MapVirtualKey(VK_SHIFT,0),KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
   FShiftKeyIsDown := False;
 end;
end;

does that help?

Hi Barry

Thanks it works, but now I have a problem the other way around, now I can't make <p> tags, and when I using "InsertOrderedList" it goes for all the text in the document.
How can I make shift+return do a <p>, means that I have switch the return <--> shift+return.

ill try to make a working example of using shift - return for paragraph later today,are you using DHTMLEdit ?
ill just need to add a FCTRLKeyIsDown check in the above routine

not sure what you mean here:
"I using "InsertOrderedList" it goes for all the text in the document."

Hi Inthe

I'm using MSHTML, and it would be very nice if you could come up with something, but anyway the points is yours.

What I meant was, when I make a line "Bullet" like this

 .bullet line 1
 .bullet line 2
 .bullet line 3

then instead of doing a bullet on every single lines it does a bullet on the hole text, like this:

 .bullet line 1
  bullet line 2
  bullet line 3
