Hello All,

I am using <b>'set_text_as_r3table'</b> in change mode to display/edit long text of notification. Now, when the text is entered I need to get the modified text and update the notification long text. Can anybody tell me how to achieve this?

I was thinking of using method '<b>get_text_as_r3table</b>' to get the data and use SAVE_TEXT to update long text. But,the mehod <b>'get_text_as_r3table'</b> retireves everything on text editor, not just the modified text.

Any Suggestions??

And, Is there any alternative (method) to the FM <b>SAVE_TEXT</b>?

Is there any way to open text editor in change mode and existing text grayed out?

      Hi Rich,

      This is very good example! Thanks for it!

      I use a similar code to protect the existing lines from editing and to keep the opportunity for adding new lines.

      BUT a strange problem occurs - when I call the function that calls

      call method text_editor->protect_lines
            from_line = 1
            to_line   = totlines
            error_cntl_call_method = 1
            invalid_parameter      = 2
            others                 = 3.

      for the first time it protects only the first "totlines" characters form the text. The next times it is called it always protects the exact number of lines set in "totlines".

      Do you have any idea why does it happen?

      Thanks in advance!
