Used to get the starting position, length, and end position of a StyleRun.

EndPos fa-lock-32.png Length StartPos


A StyleRun is a series of characters with the same style attributes in a StyledText object. A block of StyledText can be thought of as a group of StyleRuns that are appended to each other. Use the Range class to access the position of a StyleRun within the styled text.


The following example loops through the StyleRuns in a block of StyledText that is displayed in a TextArea. It uses the StartPos and Length properties of the Range class to get the position of each StyleRun and displays it and the text of each StyleRun in a ListBox.

Dim count, i as Integer
count=TextArea1.StyledText.StyleRunCount //get the number of StyleRuns
For i=0 to count-1 //loop through them
ListBox1.Addrow Str(TextArea1.StyledText.StyleRunRange(i).StartPos)
