[REBOL] Re: cursor line

From: brett:codeconscious at: 17-Aug-2001 15:31

Hi Jim, system/view/caret is pointing to the "same" text as my-area/text but is just at a different series index which shows where the cursor is. You can see this by printing head system/view/caret So based on that here's my little way of finding the line, by counting the number of line breaks: text-b4-cursor: copy/part head system/view/caret system/view/caret parse/all text-b4-cursor [ (line-num: 1) some [thru newline (line-num: add 1 line-num)] to end ] Line-num is left with the line number. I haven't thoroughly tested it but it may help. No doubt someone else has a more elegant solution for you. Brett.
