i'm creating several trichedits at run time, is there a way to create an onchange event that takes as parameter the current (the one with the focus) trichedit?

basically, i want to handle that if user writes then the caption of the form changes.

also, i noticed that by creating the richedit at run time the default popupmenu, the one with copy, paste.... is not created, any way to do this?

thanks

didn't know yet,
if a richedit has an onchange-event,
but you can use the onkeypress-event

the sender holds the current so you could do
something like this

if (sender is trichedit) then
begin
  caption := TRichedit(sender).name; //for example
  ...
end;

to assign a event procedure

r := trichedit.create(self)
r.onkeypress := MyPreDefinedKeyPressMethod;

just from head

Hi,
1.Just to expand Meikl's code:
---
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure REChange(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  re1: TRichEdit;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.REChange(Sender: TObject);
begin
  // your code
  if (Sender is TRichEdit) then
    ShowMessage((Sender as TRichEdit).Name + ' was changed');
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  re1 := TRichEdit.Create(Form1);
  with re1 do begin
    Parent := Form1;
    Name := 're1';
    Left := 100;
    Top := 100;
    OnChange := REChange;
  end;
end;
---
2. I'm afraid I have no default popup menu in both design and run-time created richedits.

Regards, Geo

What could I say? I definately didn't count on getting any points. And I didn't know that I had such luck :-)
