TAdvRichEditor tabs

I have a database application that has various blob fields that were previously edited by using the built-in TDBRichEdit control. It is not possible to use the TDBAdvRichEditor as a drop-in replacement as it does not simply edit the text data already in the field but tries to store other things as well. Obviously the data needs to remain compatible with other applications that expect purely rtf data.

But trying to use the TAdvRichEditor is not easy either.  It does not seem to support the \tab control word - or at least provide default tab stops - or provide a way to trap the tab key. Or indeed provide easy ways of getting RTF data in and out from a data field.

Example text follows:

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 MS Sans Serif;}}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\lang2057\f0\fs16 04 Sep 14\tab Inv 50042\tab 26 weeks hire 29 Sep 14 to 28 Mar 15\par\f1\par}

We extended the RTF parser to be able to handle this as well. Next update will have this improvement.

Thank you!  I'll give it another go . . .
