I'm using a simple form and textbox to display my EULA.

All is well excecpt the text formating is one large word-wrap style.

I don't want to import a text file to prevent end users from stealing the agreement and using it elsewhere.....

Q. How can I present the text in a nice readable form.

I'm currently using this code:

textBox1.Text = " END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT "+
                     // I would like a space here and other places too........//
                    " NOTICE: THIS SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ('EULA') IS A LEGAL AND BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN "+
                    " ME AND YOU ..............."+ BY SELECTING “I AGREE’ AND CLICKING THE.......... ";

For VB, you can include the text in a .BAS built into your program. Just load up the string in there and you're off. When you load up the screen, stick in vbCrLf's and vbTab's to get the format right.

strEula = " END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT " & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                    " NOTICE: THIS SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT ('EULA') IS A LEGAL AND BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN " & _
...

Hint: Use a multiline label (my pref), or a disabled textbox. I believe the MS standard font is Tahoma, but don't quote me on that.

Most often these things are displayed in the RichTextBox control.  You can write and format the text using MS Word or WordPad and then save it in RTF.  Then you can just display the RTF in the RichTextBox and it will be nicely formatted.
