Getting text position under mouse cursor?
Posted on 2004-11-02
I'm trying to make a TextBox handle Drag & Drop operations and everything is fine and smooth except for the visual feedback I'm trying to achieve.
I want to be able to drag a text data to insert it into the text at the location pointed by mouse cursor.
I can send a mouseclick (MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP) message to the TextBox during the DragDrop event to set the caret position, but doing it before the actual drop causes unwanted DragDrop event to raise and makes things complicated.
Any way to set the caret position right without raising the DragDrop event?
In short words: how to get the text position at a given point?
