Mixed read-only/editable text

Post by PeterO » Tue Aug 20, 2019 7:44 am

Hello everyone

I would like to have a textcontrol with mixed read-only/editable text parts. In HTML you can achieve this by using the contenteditable attribute in a span. Is this possible with one of the native controls as well?

Thx in advance,
Peter

I think wxRichTextCtrl might be the only control that supports this. (I don't know about wxSTC). Check the "richtext" sample, look for occurences of "locked content" in the source code.
Use the source, Luke!
