Does it use RichEdit?
I don't have UltraEdit, but you can try using a "spy" program to get the window class of the edit window. Or open the exe in notepad and search for RichEdt or something.
if RICHEDIT is not what you see for spying, then they probably create their own RICHEDIT. ;)
UltraEdit 8a seems to use all the standard win32 controls except in the editor. It's a custom control based on richedit. It sends and recieves all the same messages plus it's own. Anything richedit can do, so you can, and anything ultraedit can do, so can you. I'm willing to bet that all his control does is wrap all the line highlighting and syntax highlighting into a control so he doesn't have to worry about it in the application. _Shawn
Ultraedit uses a custom edit control.
