Hey Experts,

I'm looking for a component that will allow me to easily and solidly apply MSWord-like formatting features to a richtextbox. I need this for WinForms, NOT Web. I know there're a million of these available for asp.net web forms, but this does not help me. Thank you.

There are a ton of examples and components available here:


You can also look around on CodeProject.com for some examples.  I'd give you some links, but their server appears to be down at the moment...

Nothing at any of those links that meets my criteria.

Maybe you should be a little more specific as to your criteria then.

OK, let me clarify MSWord-like formatting. I thought the term was pretty self-descriptive, but I'll clarify:

MSWord-like formatting: WYSIWYG text formatting capabilities that include font selection, bolding, italics, underlining, hyperlinking.

The URL you posted is packed with controls that do things like code coloring, code formatting (tabs). I explored every URL and didn't find anything that met this criteria. I'd prefer an answer that would lead me in the direction of what I'm looking for, not jsut a link repository for me to search through with the chance that 1 out of the 100 links will lead me in the right direction.

I've already hand coded a solution to my problem, so i'll throw u some points for your effort.
