Graphics and text in RichTextBox

I can put text in a RTB (RichTextBox1.Text = "Some text") or add to it (RichTextBox1.Text = RichTextBox1.Text +Some more text") but as soon as I add a graphic (OLEObject method) the original text goes. Also is there a quicker method of sending text to the RTB - thanks.

Here is the answer for the second part.

You can use these methods for loading, and saving entire files into a RichTextBox.


rtb.LoadFile pathname, filetype
rtb.SaveFile(pathname, filetype)

Hope this help,  do a search in help for LoadFile, and saveFile for all the required elements.

I'll try this, however I think, perhaps, that this will overwrite the existing text. I need to send the entries in text box's with some qualifying pre-formatted text, then add a graphic, then some more of the same text. Basically the user inputs some data (these are numbers) calculations are performed then the results displayed in a RTB - does this explain more - thanks for your help, Jon

What you might be able to do is create {Field Placeholders} in the preformatted RTF File, then use LoadFile, and then do a quick search and replace on the text in the RTF Box.

For instance,

This is a samle sentence {field1}.

Do a search for {field1} and replace it with your text box value.

Just a thought.  I do not think you can use graphics in a Rich Text Box.  You would need to use a Word Container for that.  The RTB does not support at least to my knowledge any type of graphics, except bullets.

Let me know if you need any more help.

thanks very much, I hadn't tried fields - I'll play with that.
