Subject Re: [IBO] Where to find a RichEdit example?
Author Chuck Belanger

Thanks for you reply.

You're right I had no idea what to expect from the IBO rich text components. That's why I was looking for a demo. I have IP2000 and some public domain RTF editor and both offer what I was looking for, i.e. click and up pops a full fledge RTF editor, but both can't seem to access IBO's dataset.

In some of the stuff available with IBO, I did manage to find a sub-class of the IP RTF component which does allow access to IB through IBO dataset, but it seems to have a bug which I don't have a clue on how to fix:

"Error creating form: Access violation at address xxxxxx in module 'IBOWWRICH.BPL.'"

Everything works fine at design time, run time either in the IDE or as an exe, but when I re-open the project and open the form, above is what happens.

Thanks for any thoughts or help,

Chuck Belanger


> TRichEdit works fine with a blob field from an IBOQuery if you stream it in yourself; but it's not a data-aware control. You need to use TDBRichEdit and a TDataSource that is connected to your query, with the data field properly linked up.

What does "stream it in" mean? What kind of methods, etc would I used for this? What would I look up to find out more about this topic?

I tried this and although I can get TDBRichEdit to recognize the datasource and I do everything that I did with the other components that work, nothing happens with TDBRichEdit. No display in the window of the running form with the component.

At least with IBO Rich Edit, it displays something, although I can't access anything in the window to edit it.
