Dear Experts,

I am using a hidden richtextbox in vb6. How can I programmatically trigger a mousedown/mouseup event at a specified selstart location?

Why would you need to do that on a hidden RTB?...

Just call the routine and send it the parameters:

Call rtbText_MouseUp(parameters...)

Idle Mind, It's actually behind other controls and can't be seen, but visible property = true. VBClassicGuy, I want to be able to trigger the mouseup/down without having to use X and Y coordinates, just selstart value.

Then just feed the routine zero for x and y and don't use them. SelStart can be a "global" value for the form that is set somewhere else, and used in the MouseUp/Down routine.

Thanks! Easier than I thought it would be.
