Hi experts

how can i change the font in my rich text box,

The following routines dont work in the way i want.

I want to be able to allow underline, bold and italic at once

Private Sub BBold_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles BBold.Click
        If Me.BBold.ImageIndex = 3 Then
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Bold)
            Me.BBold.ImageIndex = 4
        Else
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Regular)
            Me.BBold.ImageIndex = 3
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub BItalic_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles BItalic.Click
        If Me.BItalic.ImageIndex = 5 Then
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Italic)
            Me.BItalic.ImageIndex = 6
        Else
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Regular)
            Me.BItalic.ImageIndex = 5
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub BUnderline_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles BUnderline.Click
        If Me.BUnderline.ImageIndex = 7 Then
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Underline)
            Me.BUnderline.ImageIndex = 8
        Else
            Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font, FontStyle.Regular)
            Me.BUnderline.ImageIndex = 7
        End If
    End Sub

These methods do not preserve the format. If the font was bold before underline is clicked; the boldness is removed and just underline is checked.

Cheers,

Tom

use Selection Font maybe? try this:

If RTBSendText.SelectionFont.Bold Then
   RTBSendText.SelectionFont = New Font(RTBSendText.SelectionFont, (RTBSendText.SelectionFont.Style And Not               (RTBSendText.SelectionFont.Style And FontStyle.Bold)))
Else
    RTBSendText.SelectionFont = New Font(RTBSendText.SelectionFont, (RTBSendText.SelectionFont.Style Or FontStyle.Bold))
End If

for bold as an example do the new font like this.....

Me.RTBSendText.Font = New Font(Me.RTBSendText.Font.FontFamily, Me.RTBSendText.Font.SizeInPoints, Me.RTBSendText.Font.Style Or FontStyle.Bold)

for underline and italic ... change fontstyles.bold to the respective choices...

glad to be of service :)

here is a complete function for what you want

Public Function ToggleFontStyle(ByVal f As Font, ByVal Style As FontStyle) As Font
        Dim bold As Boolean = (f.Style And FontStyle.Bold = FontStyle.Bold)
        Dim Italic As Boolean = (f.Style And FontStyle.Italic = FontStyle.Italic)
        Dim UnderLined As Boolean = (f.Style And FontStyle.Underline = FontStyle.Underline)
        Dim Strikeout As Boolean = (f.Style And FontStyle.Strikeout = FontStyle.Strikeout)

        Select Case Style
            Case FontStyle.Bold
                bold = Not bold
            Case FontStyle.Italic
                Italic = Not Italic
            Case FontStyle.Strikeout
                Strikeout = Not Strikeout
            Case FontStyle.Underline
                UnderLined = Not UnderLined
        End Select

        Dim NewFont As Font
        NewFont = New Font(f.FontFamily, f.SizeInPoints, CType(IIf(bold, FontStyle.Bold, FontStyle.Regular), FontStyle) Or _
                                                       CType(IIf(Italic, FontStyle.Italic, FontStyle.Regular), FontStyle) Or _
                                                       CType(IIf(Strikeout, FontStyle.Strikeout, FontStyle.Regular), FontStyle) Or _
                                                       CType(IIf(UnderLined, FontStyle.Underline, FontStyle.Regular), FontStyle))
        Return NewFont
    End Function

just pass it the richtextbox font and the style you want to toggle.
and it will return the new font that you should set to the richtextnox
