This may seem like an easy question, but it's been a real pain in my tookus.
I have an application, which has on one form, a multi-line text box. My problem is a little complicated, yet fairly straight forward.
I need to be able to set a limit on how many characters can be on a line (80 characters, for example). I am already using a fixed font, so the text is uniform in this respect.
I have tried using the RTF control, with it's ability to word-wrap. The problem I have it that when it DOES a wordwrap, it does not insert a CRLF into the string where that wrap occurs.
I need to, when editing is finished, be able to read through the box and pull out the lines to be written to a target interface.
I need to be able to do this, with a CRLF being injected when the wordwrap occurs.
Do I need a Third Party control?
Also, the fixedsystem font is working well, but I need a smaller fontsize. Anyone know of a smaller, fixed font? How difficult is it to distribute and register this additional font with an application? (Never done that before)
