Putting text in a Richedit

I hope most of you can forgive my ignorance here. I have attempted to self
teach myself most of the ins and outs of C++ and it doesn't always sink in.
I'm hoping someone has an answer for me here. :)

Okay I have 2 Forms the user derives a value off of form 2 and has to send
it to form number 1 and put it in a richedit control. Here is the problem by
using: Richedit->Lines->Add(ValueFromOtherForm); I have to do a new line
That doesn't help me much. What I have on the other form is code to turn the
0x000000 codes you get for colors into hex so that you can use it for HTML
but I want to just insert the code in the RE Control where ever the cursor
is or in wherever text is selected. So it could be like this:

when the cursor is inbetween "" you click the value on the other form and
then what I want to do is have this as the aftermath:
I have the code for making the html code I just don't know how to insert it
into the richedit control...

Thanks for any help you can provide,

Chris Webster

Exactly what I wanted... :) Thanks again Robert!
