sendkays problem

I am trying to send a ctrl-A (select all) command to a richtextbox control, but it's not working....all the rest of the code works fine, but this select all is needed in order for it to work properly.  And the ctrl-home command is not working either...any ideas why?

Here's the module

Me.RichTextBox1.BackColor = vbBlack
me.RichTextBox1.SetFocus
SendKeys String:="^A"
RichTextBox1.SelColor = vbWhite

'SendKeys "^(HOME)"

Here is a sample:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
'Me.RichTextBox1.BackColor = vbBlack
    Me.RichTextBox1.SetFocus
    RichTextBox1.SelStart = 0
    RichTextBox1.SelLength = Len(RichTextBox1)
   '.SendKeys String:="^A"
    RichTextBox1.SelColor = vbWhite

End Sub

And to go to the "Home"

Private Sub Command1_Click()

    Me.RichTextBox1.SetFocus
    RichTextBox1.SelStart = 0
    RichTextBox1.SelLength = Len(RichTextBox1)
   
    RichTextBox1.SelColor = vbWhite
    RichTextBox1.SelStart = 0  'take me home.

End Sub

Outstanding, I saw those event procedures but had no idea what they were for, I was checking out the F1 help file, but I guess I overlooked checking them out there.

Thanks

that should do it thanks...BTW, I've had a lot on my mind lately and I don't know for sure if I graded A or not, if I didn't I should have and msg me, I'll post a new question for you to get the proper grade, if I did then ignore this and no need to reply I'll know if I don't hear back from ya.

Actually, if I could ask your advice, there might be a general over-all method that I might be overlooking.

The app I'm building is a song display for my church, they have an overhead display that hooks into the computer to show on the sanctuary walls.

The method I'm using to store the songs would be to have them all in RTF files and the app maintains the database of the filenames, locations, and any info they enter into like Author of the song, Key, tempo, etc.

Is there any better mthod I could use, instead of having seperate RTF files, and yet maintain the layout of RTF files.

Again, if you don't reply then I'll figure that I'm using the most efficient means.

Thanks again.

Oops, well, I guess I do have one question in regards to the method you showed me....can the same .selstart .sellen method be used to increase the font size if there are more than one font sizes in the selected text, or will they all default to the first font size + x

I'll play around with it, but I thought that I would toss out the question anyways

Well, First You did Grade it A. Thanks.
About the songs and the better idea I can think off hand is to have a database (like Access) that the Comments (Memo) will be the song iteslf.

All the rest of the song parts such as Author ,  locations and so can be as fileds.

It is easy to save the database (table) to an HTML file so the second idea is to have the song display as an HTML on netscape or
IE.

 I hope it give some you direction.
