hi guys,

im trying to determine the caret position within a RichTextBox. currently im using the .SelectionStart property, however this is causing some problems when there is actually a selection that spans over multiple lines.

i've found the following article talking about a .CaretPosition property, however i cant seem to find how to access this property.

does anyone have any ideas on the most efficient way to handle this?

cheers

just to clarify, i have one rtb, i select text across multiple lines, i need to know the caret position.

currently im using the .SelectionStart property, however obviously this doesnt work too well when theres a selection (currently using it when .SelectionLength = 0). im aware i can use SelectionStart + Length to determine the caret position when selecting from left to right, however how do i determine when the selection was made from right to left?

basically looking for an efficient way to handle this.

cheers
