I would like to input a long text string into richtextbox ( or text box ) as follows :

     richtextbox1.text = str1

I don't want to split a word and display in two lines. How can I do that ?

Normally, textbox won't wrap text, unless you set MultiLine property to true.

In Richtextbox, you can do that by setting the rightmargin to a larger value like this:

Richtextbox1.RightMargin = 50000

and you can set its scrollbars property to Both or Horizontal as need be.

Hi,

In Both TextBox and RichTextBox Controls there is a Prperty Called Multilne. Set that to False. So I didn't allow u to Wrap Text.

ya, sazhagianambi is right that Multiline property is there in both. But if with Multiline set to true, in RTB and still you want a longer length of line to be displayed without wrapping, then you can set the rightmargin property to a larger value as already mentioned by me.

Cheers

Actually my requirement is to use multiline display and find out if there is simple solution so that a word will not split into two parts.

Since my text is very long so that it is not good for the user to scroll if display on just one line.

Hi,

If the Length Of Word Exceeds the RichtextBox's Width It automatically Split the Word.

If the Length Of Word Wquals to the RichtextBox's Width It Simply accomadates that Word.

So U Must Find Out the Max Length Of the Word in Your Strig and assign that value to RichTextBox's Width.

I Hope this Will Solve Your Problem. Possible i'll Post Code for that Very soon.

Just changing the RTB width will not solve it I suppose, but the RightMargin property of RTB to be increased as already suggested by me and set the MultiLine to True (which is default in RTB I suppose).

Hope that helps.
