Advanced RichEditCtrl

There are two main classes
CRTFBuilder responsible for all RTF building
CRichEditCtrlEx, which simply derives from CRichEditCtrl and adds a few methods

RTFBuilder starts off with 1 font and 4 colors:



black, red, blue, green turns text to the specified color
color Takes a COLORREF and turns the text that color
font Changes the font. Takes a font name as a string
size Takes an integer as the font size
bold(bool) Turns text bold
italic(bool) italic
underline(bool) underline
strike(bool) strike through
normal turns off the above 4 settings
push pushes the current settings on it’s own stack
pull pulls the last settings from the stack
write Takes a CRichEditCtrl as a parameter and writes to that control. Can also use the ‘>>’ operator (see example)

RichEditCtrlEx simply derives fron CRichEditCtrl and adds a few methods



It also overrides PreSubclassWindow to turn the background color to that
of the dialog(button) color to give the appearance of a simple lable and
sets the control to read only.

The export declarations in the ‘RichEd’ header make it possible to compile RichEditCtrlEx.cpp in either
a library of MFC extension DLL.

The ‘RichEd’ project is the library and the ‘test’ project is an example dialog based exe project.
To get going, simply compile and run.
