This is an enhancement request for UIField objects:

- int pos2char(point whichPos) which would return which character of the field text is underneath the point given, based on the fields origin
- point charToPos(int n) which would return a point object(x,y) that char n of the field is located at, based on the field's origin.

This functionaliy can be replicated in OrbForms by asking for the fields font, then computing where each line breaks, but it's dog slow and much better handled natively.

Thanks for listening in advance,

Thanks for considering. This would remove a big roadblock on my project.
