Is there a way to determine the row and column of the ActiveCell?
What for ?
So, you want to know what Row / Cell was clicked ?
Read there ListBox :
Determining which cell was double-clicked
The Cell is Editable, you know the Row,Cell
You want to save the Cell live ?
Sorry, I just checked a project where I have an Editable Cell and I do nothing like that there. In CellGotFocus, I remove the FocusRing/ Set a Mask Value, but nothing related to what you ask.
In the Debugger, you can watch the ActiveCell (a TextField) if you add a CellKeyDown Event and set a Breakpoint there. This May Help you
[code] Dim Edit_Cell As TextEdit
Dim My_Row, My_Col As Integer
Edit_Cell = Me.ActiveCell
My_Row = Row
My_Col = column
Edit_Cell.SelStart = Len(Edit_Cell.Text)
Edit_Cell.SelText = "Row, Column: " + Str(My_Row) + “,” + Str(My_Col) + “.”[/code]
This returns what you asked into the ActiveCell.
That’s similar to what I do now, but I was looking to see if it was available directly. I end up having to use a global property to save the current row and column so I can access it in other events. Seems I can’t override the ActiveCell to add these properties either.
TextArea instead (search in the forum for that trick).
Does a TextArea have a Row and Column property?
a. What for ?
(of course; and even if it would not be the cas you can use System.MouseX and System.MouseY: System .)
b. read the LR (RTFM)
I see. You’re suggesting to create my own Row and Column using MouseX and MouseY. Ok.
I’ve already said why.
No and I do not understand.
There are plenty Events that have X and Y, and some that do not have.
If you put a TextField (in the Cell) where the user click for Edit, in the TextField, there are Events that told you X and Y.
Make a Search in this Forum (yes not easy) for the specs.
Editable Listbox are the search words I had in mind to made that search.
I guess youre trying to help, Emile, but I really dont understand what youre saying.
