SynEdit and SyAutoCorrect


i'm trying to assign the TSynAutoCorrect.Editor property to my SynEdit at runtime,
the problem is i have more than one SynEdit but i want them all to have the same SynAutoCorrect,
so i thought of something like this:

if (SynEdit1 has focus) then  SynAutocorrect.Editor := SynEdit1
else if (SynEdit2 has Focus ) then SynAutoCorrect.Editor := SynEdit2

but there is always an error StackOverFlow in TSynAutoCorrect.EditorKeyDown
when i change focus between the 2 SynEdit and start typing, if anyone could
imitate what i just did will sure get this error

anyway to slove this?

Thanks In Advance

The autocorrect will bind the OnKeyDown and OnMouseDown of the handler, so you need to ensure that the correct editor is set at all times. I tested the following, and found that it worked correctly and without error.

// Update the editor in the OnEnter event of each editor

procedure TForm1.SynEdit1Enter(Sender: TObject);

procedure TForm1.SynEdit2Enter(Sender: TObject);

If this still causes problem then let me know (and show code, please), and I will assist further
