Hi,

I am inserting a line into RichEditCtrl using AppendToLog() function(The defination of this function is attached as Code Snippet).......I am Calling this function as AppendToLog("______________________________________________________",RGB(24,233,170));
This call will insert a line into RichEditctrl(Which is not Thick),But i need this line to be inserted as a Very Thick Line..How can i solve this problem???
int CEncopyDlg::AppendToLog(CString str,COLORREF linecolor)

{

  int nOldLines = 0, nNewLines = 0, nScroll = 0;

  long nInsertionPoint = 0;

  CHARFORMAT cf;

  // Save number of lines before insertion of new text

  nOldLines = m_ctrlLog.GetLineCount();

  // Initialize character format structure

  cf.cbSize = sizeof(CHARFORMAT);

  cf.dwMask = CFM_COLOR;

  cf.dwEffects = 0; // To disable CFE_AUTOCOLOR

  cf.crTextColor = linecolor;

  // Set insertion point to end of text

  nInsertionPoint = m_ctrlLog.GetWindowTextLength();

  m_ctrlLog.SetSel(nInsertionPoint, -1);

  // Set the character format

  m_ctrlLog.SetSelectionCharFormat(cf);

  // Replace selection. Because we have nothing 

  // selected, this will simply insert

  // the string at the current caret position.

  m_ctrlLog.ReplaceSel(str);

  // Get new line count

  nNewLines = m_ctrlLog.GetLineCount();

  // Scroll by the number of lines just inserted

  nScroll = nNewLines - nOldLines;

  m_ctrlLog.LineScroll(nScroll);

  return 0;

}

you have to insert a formatted paragraph with border like:

\par \brdrb\brdrs\brdrw50

it can be easier, the trick is the border. you don't have to add hyphens, just format a paragraph with a bottom border. It can be done by manipulating the PARAFORMAT2 structure, the following members:
    wBorderSpace
    wBorderWidth
    wBorders

Hi Jaime,

I have tried using PARAFORMAT2 structure for inserting a Thick line into Rich Edit Control......But i did not find any differences.

The code is :

  PARAFORMAT2 format;
  format.cbSize=sizeof(PARAFORMAT2);
  format.dwMask=PFM_BORDER;
  format.wBorderWidth=9000;
  format.wBorders=0x08 | 0x900 | 0x8000;
  m_ctrlLog.SetParaFormat(format);

Hi,

PARAFORMAT2 structure with the above mentioned parameters is inserting a thick line into my RichRditControl.

ALso we can use CHARFORMAT2 structure in my Appendlog function(which is attached as code snippet) and change the parameters cf.dwMask = CFM_COLOR to cf.dwMask = CFM_COLOR|CFM_SIZE; and include cf.yheight=1000;
which also will insert a thick line ....

Thanks and Regards,
Rajesh.M
