Hello Experts.
I am using VB6.
I loaded a 'RichTextBox' control on a Form.
In run time I load an rtf file into the 'RichTextBox'.
The file has Hyperlink and bookmarks programmed to it.(i.e.
if i click on a Hyperlink word,it takes me to a bookmarket line in
the same doc).
The problem is that the Hyperlink is not working in the
'RichTextBox'.
What am I doing wrong ?
Thank you.

You aren't doing anything wrong HESUS.  The richtextbox is doing exactly what it is supposed to do, which is just display formatted text.  They may look like links but they are not.

The Hyperlink behaviour is a function of MS Word and is not available in a richtextbox.

Sorry,

Hi Idle_Mind.
I am not from the USA and I have a great problem with credit cards over the net.(Had lots of problems with it in the near past.) This is why I can not view the solution you offered.
I do appretiate your willing to assist.
Many thanks.
