  • RTF made easy for RichEdit

    I am working on a wrapper for RichEdit, to make RTF coding easier for use. (I for one can never remember all the commands since I do not use RTF all the time).

    One thing I can not seem to find is how to add a picture to the RichEdit without resorting to COM interface to put a picture in.

    Does anyone know how to put a picture in RichEdit without using COM???

    You cannot..

    Gosh, wasn't there a crash ever which made you decide to abandon com for this control?

      I thought that, but I KNOW I posted before, but could not find my post to revisit.

      Close to posting, but wanted to be as complete as possible sort of thing

        Well I got things together and posted in the source-code forum at http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...122#post306122

        Still no images embedding as I do not understand COM enough yet. But learning (if this is truly the only way to add a pic, and not just the only way because no one is willing to say they have done it without COM)

        Any Questions, Comments, and especially suggestions for improving my wrapper just let me know.

        Hopefully useful to someone out there

          Just as a thought... maybe you can do it using the Microsoft Word COM interface? That's the only software I've ever been able to use to add pictures to rich text. (Lotus fails miserably and WordPad doesn't do much at all, period). By this I mean "menu and toolbar selection whilst running MS-Word", not programmatically.

            Nick Melnick and Borje did it using OLE (but that's kinda COM isn't it?)
