VB6 get text from richtextbox
Posted on 2004-09-01
Can anyone give me a sample of VB6 code to get plaintext from a richtextbox in another application (which I do not have the source) into a buffer in my program. I then have to search this buffer for certain phrases.
I have used Sendmessage(hwnd, WM_GETTEXT, length, strtmp) which works for an hour or so but eventually crashes probably because the lenght is way over 64K and usually over 100k.
I see that I am supposed to use Sendmessage with EM_STREAMOUT. I haven't been able to get this to work and all the examples I can find are in C.
Thanks for any help.
