RichTextBox - Set/Get first visible line

vb6 Australia
  • 19 years ago


    Is there any way I can set the first visible line in a RichTextBox.

    What I really want to do is to have 2 (or more) RTB's, each loaded with the same file, and when I scroll one, the other, on mouse up, synchronizes.

    Thank you

    Try the EMSETSCROLLPOS and EMGETSCROLLPOS messages (note that these are only supported if you have the latest version of the richtextbox control... ie windows 2000)
