Greetings.

I am using the HTMLEditor (great control!)...

1. When I bring up the form containing the HTMLEditor, I requestFocus and get it, but no cursor is shown.... How to show the cursor? [I know I asked this specific question before, but I was not clear - my apologies]
2. How do I bring the editor to the end of the text read?

Thank you for your reply.

This code will set the focus and move the cursor to the end:
B4X:
Sub Button1_Action
   Dim jo As JavaObject = HTMLEditor1
   Dim r As Reflector
   r.Target = jo.RunMethodJO("getSkin", Null)
   jo = r.GetField("webView")
   jo.RunMethod("requestFocus", Null)
   jo = jo.RunMethod("getEngine", Null)
   jo.RunMethod("executeScript", Array("document.body.focus()"))
   jo.RunMethod("executeScript", Array($"
   var el = document.body;
if (typeof window.getSelection != "undefined"
  && typeof document.createRange != "undefined") {
   var range = document.createRange();
   range.selectNodeContents(el);
   range.collapse(false);
   var sel = window.getSelection();
   sel.removeAllRanges();
   sel.addRange(range);
} else if (typeof document.body.createTextRange != "undefined") {
   var textRange = document.body.createTextRange();
  textRange.moveToElementText(el);
   textRange.collapse(false);
   textRange.select();
}
   "$))
End Sub
It is based on this solution: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28106194/positioning-caret-in-javafx-htmleditor

Thank you, Erel.

it works! For the benefit of others, I post the revised project. I just learned about the smart strings literal.

I could not figure out how to append CRLF and Today's date to the HTML string.

Have either of you tried this solution code using the Java 8 runtime?

It does not work for me in my application; I receive no error, it just does nothing. I tried Sandy's "2 Text Editor V2' project example as well.
