@kurtykurtyboy For the record, this works for me :

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("RichEdit Set Tab Stops with \deftabN", 500, 300)
    Local $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGUI, "", 1, 1, 498, 298, _
        BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL, $ES_WANTRETURN, $ES_NOHIDESEL))

    Local $sRTFtext = _
        '{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1036\deftab416{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Arial;}}' & @crlf & _
        '{\*\generator Msftedit 5.41.15.1515;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs20 1234567890123456789012345678901234567890\par' & @crlf & _
        'ab\par' & @crlf & _
        '}'

    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetText($hRichEdit, $sRTFtext)

    GUISetState()
    Do
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I added \deftab416 (using NotePad) and each Tab Stop corresponds to 4 characters on any line (Font used when creating the RTF with WordPad was Arial 10)
Hope it will work for you too

Interesting, after playing with your code a bit, it looks like it has something to do with _GUICtrlRichEdit_StreamFromVar vs _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetText.

If I make just 2 small edits inside the RESH UDF, everything seems to be working great.

In _RESH_SyntaxHighlight, change from _StreamFromVar to _SetText:

;~  _GUICtrlRichEdit_StreamFromVar($hRichEdit, $sCode)
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetText($hRichEdit, $sCode)

Then in __RESH_HeaderFooter, add '\deftab416' after the first string:

"\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033\deftab416"

I'm not sure if there was a reason the RESH UDF was using _StreamFromVar, but it seems to be working fine so far without it...

Anyway, thanks for the help @pixelsearch - I think it looks much better now.

Why not to use scite lexer dll ?

I thought about it, but the RESH UDF was extremely easy to just drop in and it worked. Syntax highlighting was just something that was nice to have. Since this is not a full IDE, I didn't want to spend too much time on it.

I had a plan (in the past) to make an quick editor - I mean easy to embed.
If I do it in the future I will back here with the same sugestion.

When I try to create two rectangles, the first which is blue, disappears.

Finally found the bug. Here's the fix, if you're interested and running from source.

In _display_selection_rect, make this change:

;~  If GUICtrlGetHandle($overlay) <> -1 Then
    If $overlay <> -1 Then

Updated zip in the first post with a couple bug fixes and updates. I created my own sort of build process to streamline new releases, so let me know if I missed anything in the zip.

  • FIXED: Bug when resizing the Code Generation window
  • FIXED: Bug control randomly disappears
  • FIXED: More seamless positioning of resize handles when crossing zero
  • FIXED: Code preview was not always updating
  • ADDED: New property "Image" for Icon and Pic controls with selection dialog
  • UPDATED: Smaller tab width in code preview

What do you think of these Icons? Just playing around with different options... It definitely makes things look a little more modern.

As so often, design lies in the eye of the respective beholder ;). For me personally, I prefer the new icons too, and yes, they look more 'modern'.

That is fantastic @kurtykurtyboy ... those should be standard. 

Are they all 32x32?

This next icon set is based on the logo colors. This icon set is called the Flat Ocean Design, in both grey or white backgrounds.
