two columns in a richedit component...

Hi guys,

I wonder if there is a way to use a richedit component in a two column format. I mean, I want to write a text in a richedit component but I want it formatted in two columns fashion. Is there a simple way to do that or I have to write a complete formatting procedure?

best regards

I'm almost positive that the richedit component doesn't support 2 colums. You can try using 2 richedits side by side, and when you get to a certain line, you can move the focus to the other richedit. (or use 2*n, in a scroll box dynamicly adding more 'pages' as more text gets typed.)

the easiest way could be using a fixed size font (like Courier)  or tabs(i  dont know if possible) and mimic a 2 column display (not for editing) and predefine column start positions.

I am not satisfied with the answers given. They don't solve the problem or at least, don't give me a good advice on hot to solve it.

What is the procedure to discrad this question then?

By doing nothing you have chosen the last option. Therefore it is now in the cleanup process.

But the answer of ezraa saying it is not possible, is a valid answer too - even if it does not solve your problem.
