Let's say I'm typing in an editbox, on some line, and I hit return.. I want to get that line before it goes to the next one.. below is my buggy code.
to create:

     WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE | ES_MULTILINE,                      
     (HWND)hwnd,(HMENU) 801,GetModuleHandle(NULL),NULL);

then to grab the line:

    lLine = SendMessage(client, EM_LINEFROMCHAR, -1, 0);  //Get the char pos of beginning of line

    lLineIndex = SendMessage(client, EM_LINEINDEX, lLine+1, 0); //Get the length of the line

    lLen = SendMessage(client, EM_LINELENGTH, lLine+1, 0);
    SelStart = lLineIndex;
    SelLength = lLen;
    if (lLen==0) exit(0);
    SendMessage(client, EM_GETLINE, (WPARAM)lLine, (LPARAM) stng);     
BTW shouldn't the UBB be code and NOT source?? I fseek, therefore I fam. [edited by - drarem on April 17, 2003 11:53:22 PM] [edited by - drarem on April 17, 2003 11:54:02 PM]

You''ll need to setup some message filtering I think, that should enable you to capture return key presses. (that notification should help you get started) I haven''t tried it and there might be an easier way. I was thinking ES_WANTRETURN would work but it appears not, that just makes the multi-line work like a multiline rather than a single line.
