I want to mimic the text box control I see in MS Word or the .NET IDE where certain text can be underlined with squiggly lines. How would I do that in VB.NET?

Not underline. Squiggly lines.

I was way to enthousiastic (again).

I found an article on squiggly lines (http://geekswithblogs.net/pvidler/archive/2003/10/15/188.aspx) but unfortunably it's in C#.
I hope it's any help

Still looking for a control I can just use. I'm not a C# person, but will look at your link.
