Text receiving window...
Posted on 2010-09-22
I need a customized control such as TMemo, TRichEdit or equivalent ... This is used as a window that receives text from the chat- or teletype socket.
I want to scroll up the earlier received text, may select some words and copy it to the other controls.
The problem comes up when new text is received during the time when I read the text further up ... when new text is received, the focus will be moved to caret position and user made selection loses.
How would you avoid this "focus stealing" problem?
I'm using Delphi 7 & Windows 32 & 64 OS
