How change font in Rich Text Box?

I have a RichTextBox control on a vb 6 form.  When I load the RTF control from a file, I want some lines to be BOLD and UNDERLINE and other lines to be normal.

How do I do that?

Hi EYoung

Assuming you know the particular strings etc that you want to apply formatting to, you could do something like the following

rtb.SelStart = 2
rtb.SelLength = 5
rtb.SelUnderline = True
rtb.SelBold = True
rtb.SelFontName = "Arial"

After loading the file, you can use "InStr" to determine the SelStart value, and the length of the string to determine SelLength, then just apply the formatting using the Sel... methods.
