Delphi - richedit & memo components


Thread Starter

Wim Vrinds

Can anybody please tell me how to change the overwrite/insert mode of the following text editing components:
- Trichedit
- Tmemo

Is this done by a certain property? or by a certain method? or is this a message to windows?
I have been looking in the properties of those components, but didn't recognize anything which changes the behaviour of the editor.
Best Regards,
Thanks Peter,
This works for the RichEdit.
Just two more questions:
1. Do you know how to do this for a Memo component as well?
2. Is it possible to read back the actual insert/overwrite state of such a component.

Best Regards,

Sorry, the Memo component does not seem to use the overwrite/insert mode. I have found no way to check the overwrite/insert mode state. I use Spy++, a tool in Visual Studio to trace Windows messages.
