I had the same problem, what exactly do you want t do?

The reason why currentPos is 9, is that scintilla returns the byte count with its currentPosition not the real word count.

You could use the Method


to get the word of your position.

 Klingel , Thank you very much !

Klingel is correct. When talking about positions and lengths Scintilla usually means bytes, not characters. Scintilla's Unicode handling is always UTF-8 which means that ASII ranged characters take 1 byte and extended characters are 2-4 bytes. Scintilla.Text.Length will return character length because the Scintilla.Text is a .NET UTF-16 string, .Length always returns the number of characters. If you want to get the length in bytes use Scintilla.TextLength.
