Targets: Win32 only
This module imports the structures and functions used with RichEdit.
About the RichEdit Control:
The RichEdit Control is a window in which the user can enter
and edit text. The text can be assigned character and paragraph formatting,
and can include embedded OLE objects. Rich edit controls provide
a programming interface for formatting text. However, an application
must implement any user interface components necessary to make formatting
operations available to the user.
Rich edit controls support almost all of the messages and notification
messages used with multiline edit controls. Thus, applications that
already use edit controls can be easily changed to use rich edit controls.
Additional messages and notifications enable applications to access the
functionality unique to rich edit controls.
An application can send messages to a rich edit control to perform
such operations as formatting text, printing, and saving. An application
can process notification messages to monitor events in a rich edit control.
For example, an application can process notifications to filter keyboard
and mouse input, to permit or deny changes to protected text, or to
resize the control as needed to fit its content.
