rich-text

Arguments: widget

Returns (or sets with setf) the rich-text string displayed in rich-edit, which must be an instance of the rich-edit control class. Using this widget property is similar to calling the function rich-edit-range on the window of the rich-edit control (the result of applying window to the control) and using the default values of the keyword arguments.

See cg-rich-text.htm for information about rich text editing in Common Graphics.

GTK note

Formated editable text is not yet implemented on the GTK platform. It appears feasible to implement functions such as set-character-format and set-paragraph-format that modify the text formatting of an edit control, but not to implement functions such as rich-text and rich-edit-range that handle actual rich text strings.

Attempting to create a rich-edit widget or a rich-edit-pane window currently will error on GTK.
