Can a user enter text in two different fonts(essentially two different languages) in a single richtext box? The user will enter text which is a combination of two different fonts which will be stored in the database. If it is not possible to do it with rich text box, what other control can be used for the above problem. Thanks in advance.

Using the SelFontName and SelFontSize you can format the selected text the given FontName and Size.

Hello

Here's a sample to format text in RichTextBox
Private Sub Command1_Click()
  With RichTextBox1
    .Text = "Hello World"
    .SelStart = 0
    .SelLength = 5
    .SelFontName = "Tahoma"
    .SelFontSize = 20
    .SelStart = 6
    .SelLength = 11
    .SelFontName = "Times new roman"
    .SelFontSize = 18
    .SelItalic = True
  End With
End Sub

Best regards
