Wink Scanning a specific string in ActiveRichTextField using StringPattern

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I am a newbie in BLB development and exploring the ActiveRIchTextFIeld currently. I know that it detects strings like phone number and email by itself and inserts a menu item in the corresponding Context Menu. However, I am trying to make the field detect some specific string like a postal code in an address or any other string indicating the address.I have read that this can be done using the StringPattern or the PatternRepository.However m unable to figure out how it can be achieved. Can anyone plz give me a reference snippet for the same? Thanks in advance..

Have you looked at the knowledgebase? There is an article with a link to a code example.
