Value List Editor and SetEditorText

Posted on 2004-08-10

i have a problem using the value list editor as usual , i  need to make some changes
in my memo1 when the user edit the cell text but this resulted an infinite
loop causing EStackOverFlaw,
cause each time memo1.setfocus is executed in the value editor setedittext
event , the setedittext is fired again and again and again (probably
because the valuelisteditor loses focus or something),

procedure TFrmMain.vleSetEditText(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer; const Value: String);
memo1.SelText := 'blabla';

how to solve this?, i read about using OnExit event but i need the SetEditText event to
access the old and new "value" variable,
any ideas?

Thanks In A

maybe because there is a few lines written in your SetEditText, i have about 30 lines of code and it does repeat itself continuously (not 4 times), any ideas?

oops, i discovered that changing maintext.selstart causes the loop because when changing it the maintext SelChanged is fired wich also fires SetEdittext again...

Sorry for wasting your time.
