Cursor position

Hello, I have a questions for you. I need to know the position of the cursor in TMemo object.
The users can enter information in the TMemo object and when they push a button on the form I need to know what the current position is in that field.
Is this an easy task or? We use Delphi XE.

RE: Cursor position

Reading TMemo.SelStart will get the current position of the cursor in terms of the number of characters that are in the TMemo.


procedure TForm1.Memo1KeyUp(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
  Form1.Caption := 'Form1 : ' + IntToStr(Memo1.SelStart);

It is not possible for anyone to acknowledge truth when their salary depends on them not doing it.

RE: Cursor position

Thanks Glenn9999, that works just fine!
