hello

is it possible to get current cursor position (where next text will

appear) in message body of mailitem so that some predefined text/link

can be added at that position?

Thanks

I need to move to end of the word if the current cursor position is in

between the word and then insert the link.For OL 2007 using WordEditor

object it is possible.But for OL 2003 when word is not editor (for

plain text,HTML body format) how to accomplish this?

using redemption safeinspector I can insert the link at current cursor

position but how to know if current cursor position is in between the

word ?

Thanks again

You'd need to parse that out yourself. You'd get the position and the full

text and see if the position was at the end of the text or somewhere within

the text.

I was able to find out if the cursor is in between for Plain text

format but how to achive the same for HTML format ?SafeInspector has

HTMLEditor property but was unable to find if cursor is in between the

word.

HTMLEditor is an IHTMLDocument object, you would use that object model or

one derived from it.

Thanks again.I was able to move to next/previous word with the help of

HTMLEditor.But is there any way to find out the char at current cursor

position using HTMLEditor?(as I need to insert link to end of word if

cursor is in between the word otherwise just insert link at current

cursor position)

Thanks

I don't do enough with IHTMLDocument to know that offhand. Take a look at

the object model for that object and see.
