I have text that is added to a textbox and I want to BOLD only a certain section of the string.
Example:
(1,000) .... One Thousand

I just want the 1,000  font bolded

the code is as followes:

Text3.text = Text3.text & "(" & Label3.Caption & ")" & Text2.text VbCrLf

The Label3.Caption is the Number (1,000) the Text2.text is that number convert to a text form and as the user enters more numbersto be converted it adds them to to the next line of the textbox.

Should I use a Listbox instead of a text box?

I would like to make the Number (Label3.Caption) Font Bold so that it stands out.

Thanks.....

For example:

        Me.rttTextBox.Text = "This is my rich text box" & vbCrLf
        Me.rttTextBox.Text &= "1000" & vbCrLf
        Me.rttTextBox.Text &= "After the number"

        Me.rttTextBox.SelectionStart = Me.rttTextBox.Text.IndexOfAny("1000")
        Me.rttTextBox.SelectionLength = CStr("1000").Length
        Me.rttTextBox.SelectionFont = New Font(Me.rttTextBox.Font.Name, Me.rttTextBox.Font.Size, FontStyle.Bold)

You must select the number in your richTextBox control and then aply it a bold font.
