I'm buiding a custom control "from scratch" and want to have a caret in it.
I don't want to re-invent the wheel and would rather make use of the existing
code for using the caret in a control, so what do I need to do to make use of
the caret / caretCtrl that already exists?

(I tried to follow what the existing 'edit'-type controls do, but the code is
all over the place and the logic is hard to decipher.)

Edit - Solved:
It's as simple as just calling SetCaret(..) - with _valid_ values Smile
(I was looking for complexity where there wasn't any - I should have
learned by now that most things in upp is simple & easy Embarassed )
