You can use many different methods:
1) Use a textbox control and read the contents of the file into the textbox.  Make sure to set multiline = true
2) You can use a richtextbox control and do the same, except the richtectbox control will allow RTF style files like MS Word and allows embedding objects into the textbox
3) You can use the OLE control to embed a document into your application
4) You can call up an instance of Notepad, then do a setparent API call to keep it in the boundaries of your form (preferrable to create a picturebox to hold the notepad instance).
