The text view uses a chain architecture for command filters. Call AddCommandFilter to add a new command filter to the chain and to handle commands for the text view. The environment then returns a pointer to another command filter. Use this second command filter to handle all of the commands that you do not want to send to your command filter.

To discontinue command handling, call RemoveCommandFilter.
