It's not possible to underline a TEXTPART in a textbox, use RTF text control instead.

yeah the rtf thing is what I think about. I looked on my com.  I don't have access to those components. Where can I get a licence or the thing I will need?
PS: is it easy to work with rtf's?

If you are unable to access Rich Textbox then you should try un-register RTF control and then register it again.
