I want to create a working margin at the left of a rich edit control. This makes the text easier to read. At present I have a panel (white with no borders) beside the rich edit and this gives the desired look.
| Panel| Rich edit |
| | |
| | |
The problem is when users try to select text from the beginning of a line in the rich edit but start their selection on the panel. This means the selection operation does not work as they continue to drag the mouse from the panel over the rich edit.
Can someone tell me how to write code for mouse events on the panel that will let the selection action work in the rich edit even though it starts from the panel.
Or can someone show me how to alter the width of the very narrow margin that is at the left of rich edit controls.
