Hello guys,

I'd like to center a line of my richEdit, not all text.

I don't know if there is a function where I could pass the line that must be affect with alignment, something like:

(richedit, line, typeAlign)  

I hope someone can help me on this

thanks

Alexandre

It seems is not possible (or easy) to center a line in a richedit component. I guess you need a third party component, as http://www.trichview.com

ps. i will search a little more...

I did a little more research. There is a way to align a paragraph i in a Richedit;

To left justify (a paragraph):

 RichEdit.Paragraph.Alignment := taLeftJustify;


To center (a paragraph);

 RichEdit.Paragraph.Alignment := taCenter;

To right justify:

 RichEdit.Paragraph.Alignment := taRightJustify;

In addiction there's a good example on Embarcadero Rad Studio VCL Reference

Look at the example

uses ComCtrls;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with TRichEdit.Create(Self) do
  begin
    Parent := Self;
    Align := alClient;
    Lines.Clear;
    // set numbering style
    Paragraph.Numbering := nsBullet;
    Lines.Add('Introduction');
    Lines.Add('New members to our team');
    Lines.Add('New Budget discussion');
    Lines.Add('Facilities');
    Lines.Add('Q & A');
    Paragraph.Numbering := nsNone;
    Paragraph.Alignment := taCenter;
    Lines.Add('');
    Lines.Add('Suggested Topics:');
    Lines.Add('');
    Paragraph.Alignment := taLeftJustify;
    Paragraph.FirstIndent := 10;
    Lines.Add('');
    Lines.Add('Parking lot repair');
    Lines.Add('Cost overruns');
  end;
end;
