I am writing a slick File Parsing program. I wish to be able to open a standard text file into a control and keep the formatting of the file. Currently, I load each line of the file into a FlexGrid control. The data goes into 1 single cell. The formatting is partial as in....you can see the number of columns and such, but they don't line up in a straight columnar fashion. How can I load a file and retain the original formatting?
