Rich Text editor conponent to format rich text

Hi we want to format rich text in a memo with the bold , underline , fonts ect. with basic functions like wordpad. A VCL component for now but later something that will work with firemonkey to format text.

There are a few component out there but they cost more than half the price of Delphi. Is there a basic component out there that can do that and not hundreds of other things as well that we have to pay for that we don't need.

WE got XE4 and want to start all new developments with that and fire monkey where posible, but for now we still use VCL because there still need to develop components for firemonkey to be used successfully.

Or should I reinvent the wheel and add my own format funtions
Please assist, we need to finish a project before 19 September with this as a portion of their reporting

For VCL I would definitively use TRichEdit. It has everything that you
need. Maybe later you could switch to third party component.

Rich Text Formatting / Text Formatting Toolbar
Is there a default control in ASP.NET or in VS .NET in general that I can use to help edit textboxes and have a formatting toolbar at the top similar to the microsoft word formatting toolbar (lets you make fonts bold, select font size, font type, etc. -- basic formatting stuff and maybe insert pictures/attach files to the text box). If you reply to this message, you'll see what i'm talking about at the top of the reply box. There isn't a default one in The one used here is called FreeTextBox.

Converting Rich Text Format to Plain Text
I have a textbox in my web form for users for "description". What happen is that users usually open a word document and copy the text from the word document to the textbox in my form. This created a problem for my application since the information input from my web form will eventually converted to a text file serving as an input for another application which can only accept plain text. Because of the rich text format, some special characters are not recognized correctly. So, I am wondering if there is a way to convert the text in the textbox from rich text format to plain text format? ...

Rich Text Editor using Atlas
Hi, I need to create a basic RTE and was thinking about using some of the Atlas functionality until I realised that of course there is no SelectedText, SelectedLength, SelStart properties on string type controls such as Literal. Can anyone tell me whether they know of a way that this might be achieved? Many Thanks, Grant SelectedText, SelectedLength and SelStart. the literal control does generate a specific html element, if any of those properties are present in javascript, you can probably apply them to the literal through javascript. although, the real technique for the RTE s is us...
