As the title implies, trying to mimic Microsoft Word (Older version) using RichEdit. Not an easy task, it's not even 1/10th of what word really is but I wanted to make a small text editor (That supported changing an individual word/letters properties). Some of the functions I wanted to use didn't have a whole lot of information/topics about them so I spent many many hours trying to figure out how to do some things... (Like getting the text from a ExComboBox or changing the color of the rich edit text without changing ALL of the rich edit text (Turns out I just needed to update my AutoIt version....)) Some of the things I struggled with was reading the Font Size from the ComboBoxEx (GUICtrlRead and ControlGetText do not work, by themselves, but if you use _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_GetEditControl to get the GUICtrlID of the ComboBoxEx you can use ControlGetText), trying to track a Popup menu for the font size (I didn't want to use a dropdown menu, trying to use the scroll wheel to increment/decrement the text in the ComboBoxEx, making sure the correct attribute buttons are Checked depending on the location of the caret (This isn't 100% perfect, I got it to pretty much work though... I originally had it checking the letter 1 left of the caret all the time, except when the caret is at the 0,0 mark, but if the caret is at the very end and the user presses one of the attribute buttons, it won't keep the button checked correctly). There are a few other things but I can't think of them. I don't know enough about the WinAPI in order to make a truly amazing wordpad but maybe this will help some others out there trying to use some of the controls I used. Also, this was actually made to be attached (_WinAPI_SetParent($frmEditor, WinGetHandle("[Class:LWJGL]")) to a game I play (PokeMMO), so there may be some remnants of the game stuff in here. I don't think so, but there might be... It still functions properly. (There is no gameplay automation, it's just supposed to be a child of the game and work as a simple text editor. I've currently submitted it to one of mods of the game so I can release it to the community) Beginnings of a Wordpad.rar
