Hello, I'm populating a textbox with values from a dataset which works fine. See partial code below. I want to add a space between the returned rows and make the first values bold.


Code:

txtASVResults.Text = String.Empty
            For i As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
                txtASVResults.Text &= ds.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("verse")
                txtASVResults.Text &= ds.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("passage") & ControlChars.CrLf
            Next

What is returned:

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters

What I want: (but with the verse in bold)

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters

assuming that the textbox displays as html code:

            For i As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
                txtASVResults.Text &= ds.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("verse")
                txtASVResults.Text &= " <b>"
                txtASVResults.Text &= ds.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("passage")
                txtASVResults.Text &= "</b>" & ControlChars.CrLf
            Next

Thank Angel for your post. There was no change in the output. This is for a winforms application. I should have mentioned that, sorry. Is it possible to change a property of a winfrom textbox to display HTML?

you will rather need the richtextbox instead the normal textbox.
