Great idea. It reminded me that I had some code sitting around that
did this. This takes into account the vertical scroll of the field and
won't return a line number less than 1 or greater then the number of
lines in the field.
on mouseMove pX, pY
put number of lines of text of fld "MyField" into tLineCount
subtract top of fld "MyField" + borderWidth of fld "MyField" from pY
put max(0, \
(pY + vScroll of fld "MyField") / effective textHeight of fld
) into tLine
put trunc(tLine) into tLine
if tLine <> tLineCount then add 1 to tLine
put "Line:" && tLine
This could probably be optimized a bit but it should do the trick.
