Vcl.ComCtrls TCustomRichEdit


Controls whether the rich edit control treats the text as plain text or rich text when streaming to or from a file.

To write the rich text in the control to a plain text file, set PlainText to true before streaming the text to a file. To ignore the rich text information encoded in a file, set PlainText to true before streaming the text to the control. To stream in the rich text attributes encoded in a file, or save the encoding of the rich text attributes to a file, set PlainText to false.

If the rich text attributes of a file are encoded in some format other than rich text format (RTF), it is necessary to use a converter on the text, even when PlainText is true.

Note: Rich edit controls do not directly support streaming. Use the Lines property to stream to or from a file.
