B2004 - I would like to know the text on the line the user clicks. How?

by - Joseph Ganci

Is there anyway I can find out the string of text that the user had clicked? I need a similar function to "LastLineClicked" but instead of telling me which line, I want the text within that line.

This works best when the text you're showing is in a variable that you're showing on the screen, such as {text}. If that's the case, just use the expression

    linetext := GetLine(screentext, LastLineClicked)
The user variable linetext will contain the text of the line that was clicked.  This works only when your text is divided up into individual text lines.  This works best when you have a list of items, rather than a flowing paragraph.
