[REBOL] Re: specifiv position in area
From: moeller_thorsten:gmx at: 25-Feb-2002 18:07
this is exactly what i am behind, to have a working "area" and to be able to
make a selection in an other window where the selection should be inserted
at the last cursor position in the area.
There seem to be a problem of system/view/caret or the area itself to keep
track of datainput. When i type text, the system/view/caret is as long none
until i refocus the area and reset the cursor manually to a specific position
in the new typed text. After that i am able to insert text at the specified
position in the new lines. Before this, the insertion will always happen behind
the last character of my text.
The problem for an automation i see is that when i refocus the area to
update the /text i loose the position of the cursor, so it will be placed after my
The question is, how can i determine the cursor-position before refocussing
the area to place the cursor at the right position after the focus?
Any supporting ideas?
