What third party product is best for a text editor to embed in a
PB11.5 app?

I need ability to edit > 2Gb text files.
I would like rtf/html support but not necessary if too difficult.

I am looking at Scintilla.
Any others I should know about?

TIA

Larry

I don't know about capacity, but I'd suggest looking at TxText. It's
the control behind PB's RTE (albeit somewhat fettered), and seemed
pretty solid when I looked at it.

Good luck,

Terry and Sequel the techno-kitten

Roland Smith must be sleeping.
This Powerbuilder application features an embedded Scintilla control.
Have a look, it's free code.

I use Scintilla in QweryBuilder. It works very well.

Thanks Paolo.

I did indicate in my original message (para 3) that I am looking at
Scintilla.

So far I like what I see. However, it is free code and for commercial
use I would prefer to pay for support if needed.

Thanks

Larry

I would love to take your money :-)

The PowerBuilder built-in Rich Text Editor control uses a really old
version of TX Text Control. Perhaps you could buy a new version directly
from them which would give you the support you need.

Thanks Roland.

I'm in touch with TX Text with a view to receiving a trial version
which works with PB Classic. If the product does all it promises and
doesn't bankrupt me then we may have a winner. Otherwise I'll probably
have another look at Scintilla.
