[VB]Using IWpfTextView to get Character at Specified Column RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking to get the character at a specific column (not index) using IWpfTextView. I have managed to get the current column of the cursor using the CurrentColumn property of a TextSelection. My ultimate goal is to get the characters to the left, top, right, and bottom of the current character. I would like to have a way to do this without needing to manually adjust the values for the tab characters every time. Is there a good way to do this? Thanks.

  • Hi friend,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Sorry for the delay.

    By IWpfTextView, there seems no method defined in it to get the character directly. If the character you mean is something like a letter?

    Best Regards
