New Word Processor
2008-06-27 02:15:48 PM
I don't want to reinvent the wheel, nor write just another Word clone
here. I want to write a special purpose word processor. Very simple in
fact (no need for graphic, table, etc, just text with styles and color)
but I was unable to find a component to start from (not even
commercial). So I pretty much decided to write my own engine.
My problem is, I don't know from where to start. I don't understand the
TCustomMemo class (is there suppose to be a way to render things the way
I want in there?) and TRichEdit is not even a remote possibility.
Where should I start from? Some Canvas and some MS function to render a
Thanks in advance for any suggestion,
