Odd problem with _GUICtrlRichEdit_ReplaceText

Reported by: qwert Owned by: BrewManNH
Milestone: Component: Standard UDFs
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: RichEdit ReplaceText Cc:


After months of observing an odd problem when clearing the text in a RichEdit control, I isolated the statements involved:
_GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($hEdit, 0, -1, True)
_GUICtrlRichEdit_ReplaceText($hEdit, "")

The odd part is that every now and then (a third of the time?) the text of the button I use to invoke those statements replaces the contents of the windows clipboard. In other words, if "Clear Text" is the text on the GUI button, then "Clear Text" shows up on the windows clipboard. Strange.

I replaced those statements in the particular script I am working on with: _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetText($hEdit, "") ... which works.

I realize this is an obscure problem, but the next time someone works on the _GUICtrlRichEdit features, they might want to look at it. For now, I'm fine.

Can you post an example script that demonstrates the problem? This way we don't have to reinvent the wheel, and might not be doing it the same way as you are doing it.
