Hi!

Here's a file for you over the net:

Download...
http://www.vb-helper.com/HowTo/pasterch.zip
Description: Paste a picture into a RichTextBox (37K)

If you're programming a chat application, you could send a particular string indicating a picture, then your proggy would load that particular picture into the textbox.

That's it!

Hi!

That file works fine on my system : )

Well, you may want to change that line to:

Clipboard.SetData Picture1.Picture, vbCFBitmap

and see if that works or not : )

That's it!

Hi!

Here's another piece of coding if you're uncomfortable with APIs:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Clipboard.Clear
Clipboard.SetData LoadPicture("C:\Windows\Clouds.bmp"), vbCFBitmap
RichTextBox1.SetFocus
SendKeys "^v", True
End Sub

That's it!
