This method searches for an object at a certain x,y position.


IWPTextObj IWPTextObj GetObjAtXY([In] int X, [In] int Y, [In] int TypeMask, [In] int Mode);


The Result is a reference to the IWPTextObj interface. If no object was found the result will be null.

private void wpdllInt1_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)


   IWPMemo Memo = wpdllInt1.CurrMemo;

   IWPTextObj obj = Memo.GetObjAtXY(e.X, e.Y, 02);
