FindRTF code template

Top  Previous  Next

This template (and its associated code templates) has been deprecated, and is now replaced by the RTF Text Control template.

The FindRTF code template is used to search for text within the rich text field. This template calls the Find method. The string (or variable containing a string) to search for is passed to this method. If this parameter is omitted, the Find dialog will appear. The position where the text is found is returned.

Prototype:

Find(find text )

Example method calls:

loc:position = oRTF_RTFTextBox.Find( loc:find )

loc:position = oRTF_RTFTextBox.Find( 'mytext' )

Template Prompts:
