TaTSynEdit: using it for an editor-repaint caret
« on: March 30, 2021, 02:13:36 am »
I put a TaTSynEdit in a frame that I dynamically place in a TPanel.
I use TATTabs to swap the "shown" frame.

My issue is: when I change tabs, I lose the caret. The caret position persists in a property of the frame.

So, I know where I want the caret to be painted but I don't know how to paint it.

Tried to figure it out from the cudatext code but got thoroughly lost in the complexity.

I don't know ATSynEdit, but I would guess it is a focus issue.
When switching tabs, afterwards make sure focus goes to the correct editor?

Otherwise no idea

Dear Martin_fr,

I love it when I feel like a dummy and my issue gets fixed.

That was exactly the problem.
