Hope someone can help. I have an application that needs to look the
text the user is typing and editing in real time. For each keystroke I
need to work out what the current word is. This is complicated a bit by
the fact that the user is free to edit text anywhere in the field -
simply capturing keystrokes and building the word as they type will not
work because they could have begun editing a word in previously typed
text. The following example solves the problem but is very, very slow
(to the point of making it unusable).
put the selectedLoc into keyDownPoint --get the location of the
put the selectedLoc into lastPoint --get the location of
the insertion point
click at keyDownPoint --click at the word
based on the KeyDown event
put the clicktext & return after field "debug" --so I can see what has
click at lastPoint --put the insertion
point back so I don't type 'backwards'
Does anyone know of a way to do this that is reasonably fast? Any
thoughts at all would be appreciated.
