does anyone know the best way to create a richTextbox (doesn't have to be a richtextbox) to receive large amounts of data line by line?

Ideally it will slowly scroll up pand it reads data in on the bottom..

I've used
richTextBox1.Select(this.richTextBox1.Text.Length, 0);
                richTextBox1.SelectedText = i.ToString();

but it keeps sounding my windows "error" or "Default beep" sound...


please help, no one seems to know why.

Are you trying to append a line to the end of the RTB?

    richTextBox1.SelectionStart = richTextBox1.TextLength;
    richTextBox1.SelectionLength = 0;
    richTextBox1.SelectedText = i.ToString();

I figured out that it's because it's trying to change content in a "ReadOnly" box that is causing the beep.

Is there a work around, I do want to keep the field readonly.

made the richtextbox read only.

just richTextBox1.readonly = true;

so what happens is if you try to press a key in the box, it beeps.
so when you append to it using the method .selectedText = i; it causes it to beep.

Just make it non-read-only. Draw a label on top of the textbox, and set label text to nothing. Make sure label covers the textbox completely, and its Z factor is higher than the textbox (renders on top).

Can't you just set Readonly = false, append the data, and then set Readonly = true?
