I have text box with text wrapping enabled in my Windows Phone 7 app, how do I get the line count at the character selected by the user? For example, if a text box it looked like this:
test text bo|x is here
, with "|" representing the selected character, the line count would be 3. I need to do this at any point in time, most specifically when the text is changed. I could count the number of newlines in a text box without text wrapping, but this is clearly a different scenario.
I figured this out myself:
Rect rec = textbox.GetRectFromCharacterIndex(textbox.SelectionStart); double rectop = rec.Top; double lineheight = text.LineHeight; int result = (int)(rectop / lineheight + 1);
result = the selected line.
