Rich Text

Hello, I have three rich text boxes...

I have content in the first two text boxes that are formated with fonts, colors, etc...  

I want to copy the components from those two rich text boxes to the third one but still maintain the formatting...

How can i do this?

Make your selection using SelectionStart() and SelectionLength().  Then use SelectedRtf to grab the formatted selection:

        ' select something in RichTextBox1
        RichTextBox1.SelectionStart = 10
        RichTextBox1.SelectionLength = 25

        ' append to RichTextBox3
        RichTextBox3.SelectionStart = RichTextBox3.TextLength
        RichTextBox3.SelectionLength = 0
        RichTextBox3.SelectedRtf = RichTextBox1.SelectedRtf
