DBRichEdit and hottext Or URL Links

Posted on 2008-06-11

Hi,

I am having issues with hottext or URLLinks. While typing or entering data in the DBRichEdit box  I could see the URLLink get active, (I have AutoUrlDetect property is true). I can save the text in database successfully. When I retrieve the data the URLLink does not appear to be active link. It is just like plane text. It gets active if I add a space at the beginning or end of the UrlLink text.

Could anybody help me to resolve the issue? Is there any thing else I am missing?

I am using Delphi 2005, Interbase/SQL Server database.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
ktuser.


FYI: The same functionality used to work in previous version of application which was developed using Delphi 5 and DBRichEdit component.

Resolution is found.
I need to use DBRichEdit.GetRTFText  function to store the text in the database and after assigning text to DBRichEdit again I need to use it to get the format back.

Yes there is...
DBRichEdit1.PlainText

Controls whether the rich edit control treats the text as plain text or rich text when streaming to or from a file.

property PlainText: Boolean;

Description

To write the rich text in the control to a plain text file, set PlainText to True before streaming the text to a file. To ignore the rich text information encoded in a file, set PlainText to True before streaming the text to the control. To stream in the rich text attributes encoded in a file, or save the encoding of the rich text attributes to a file, set PlainText to False.

If the rich text attributes of a file are encoded in some format other than rich text format (RTF), it is necessary to use a converter on the text, even when PlainText is True.

Note:      Rich edit controls do not directly support streaming. Use the Lines property to stream to or from a file.

Thanks a lot for your response Loki. Sorry it was my mistake!,
I forgot to mension in my previous post that yes the RichEdit components have PlainText property.

But in my case PlainText property did not resolve the issue. After assigning the text to the DBRichEdit component I need to call GetRTFText function. Without this call the component is not showing URL as active.
