I need to set a background picture for a RichTextBox control. The text should look like it's above the background picture... is this possible?

I don't believe you can set the background of the field directly other than to a color.  However, you should be able to make the field transparent and simply place a graphic under it on your form.

Problem is that when your users are entering text, they won't be able to see the graphic.  I'm guessing that seeing the graphic during input is what your hoping for (some sort of form filling app?).  If so, this solution wouldn't work for you.

Am I right in my assumption?

Yea, that is the basic idea. I guess a picturebox with advanced text input would also work, but I'm not sure how to do that either...
