Here it is folks. There's a few bugs in it still but it works just fine for small descriptions (ie;dialog descriptions).

This example looks for and highlights the word 'Dialog'. Actually it works perfect for say..., my Script Checker program.

Code:

:HighLight
  %%c = DkGreen
  %%searchText = @object(dlgtext,RichEdit1)
  %%searchText2 = %%searchText
  %%findTextOld =
  list create,1
  list assign,1,%%searchText
  %%findText = "Dialog"
  %%len = @len(%%findText)
  repeat
    list seek,1,0
    if @null(%%findAgain)
      %%find = @pos(%%findText,%%searchText)
    else
      %%findTextOld = @substr(%%searchText2,1,@sum(@len(%%findTextOld),%%find))
      %%searchText = @substr(%%searchText,@succ(%%find),65537)
      %P = @pos(%%searchText,@text(1))
      %%PP = @substr(@text(1),%P,@sum(%P,25))
      %M = @match(1,%%PP)
      %%idx = @index(1)
      %%item = @item(1)
      %%find = @pos(%%findText,%%searchText)
    end
    if @greater(%%find,0)
      %%color = @object(getformat,RichEdit1,C)
      if @not(@equal(%%color,%%c))
        %%start = @pred(@diff(@sum(@pred(@len(%%findTextOld)),%%find),%%idx))
        %%end = @sum(%%start,%%len)
        object format,RichEdit1,clipboard,select,%%start,%%end
        object format,RichEdit1,bold,on
        object format,RichEdit1,Setfont,Arial,10,%%c
        object format,RichEdit1,Bold,Off
        object format,RichEdit1,clipboard,select,@succ(%%end),@len(@object(dlgtext,RichEdit1))
        object format,RichEdit1,Setfont,Arial,10,Black
        %%findAgain = 1
      end
    else
      %%findAgain =
    end
  until @null(%%findAgain)
  list close,1
  exit

NOTE:
It would probably be better to assign the text to a string list and loop through it line by line instead of tring to do this all in a variable.



If there aren't enough comments within this example I'm sorry. I will edit this post to contain more comments if necessary. I would like some feed back from any of y'all about this.

Happy Computing

No DLL? 8O

Where do the object commands and functions come from?

Cheers, Mac Smile

Just let me rephrase that. No external dll for the highlighting. Of course there's a needed dll for the RichEdit object.

My head was swollen when I made this post. Thanks for bursting my bubble! Laughing

Ya might want to move this to VDS4 source code since
it requires a DLL...

Cheers, Mac Smile

The current version of the dll used to create the RichEdit control is the
Vdsobj2.dll. Is isn't FREEWARE but I do believe it's $30.00 US to
register it.

Hopefully the vdsobj isn't popping up that frequently, I added in a function so it would popup after a random number of functions/commands were used. Still though the popups are there, sorry but it's the only real way to prevent people from distributing the extension without supporting their local garage programmer Sad

No I totally understand that.
I was able to try the VDSOBJ ext. Popups varied, but atleast I got to try some of it's functions Wink

One guy in the MMB scene made a cool plugin. And instead of adding popups, he made a small picture with a link and some text in a small space that appeared in the corner of the program. And it wasen't possible top put any objects ontop of that. I think that is the best solution I've seen so far.

But, a popup that doesn't kill the opportunity to try the product is all good Wink

Sorry GeoTrail about all the popups in the Gadget extension. I have fixed that problem but I have not uploaded the new version of the extension yet. It will be up soon.
