Hi vbMarkO;

This is a control that the author of "Word Processing with an Extended Rich Text Box Control" wrote. The project that  Scott Lysle put together has the source for the control and demo in the down load from the link you posted above on the right side of the page near the top.

when you unzip the file, the source code of the RichTextBox control is in one of the folders that gets created by the Extrac from the ZIP file.

Arthur and others,

This is the control ..... but How do I added ... understand, I dont mean how do I add this project to my project folders for viewing ... but how do I add the control so I can start a project from start with it ....

Another note, everyone here has pointed me to this control   I am not sure how to share on these points .... unlesss I choose the first to tell me however there are two parts to my question   ... 1 Where to get it thats been answered by several of you but how to I add it VB2005 express edition so I can use it in my own project.

I never added a control before I have only used those that were available.

you build the Project that holds the control, to make it a DLL.  YOu can then add that DLL to other projects that you might want to build.

AW this sounds like what I want then ... let me clarify this just to be sure ...

You said to build the project ... you mean the downloaded project from the site   load it up then BUILD it  using the Build function from the drop down menu when right clicking on a project in the solution explorer.

After I choose build .....  How might I go about making it so I can access this tool from my tools like I can the standard RTB that came with VB2005 Express?

Shouldn't I be able to add this control to them so I can access the same as the rest of the controls via the tool bar menu?

In order to add a DLL as a control in your Toolbox right click on an unoccupied (grey) part of your Toolbox then select "Add/Remove Items".  This will open the "Customize Toolbox" window.  Look for your component in the list of .NET Components but if it does not exist there then click the "Browse" button at the bottom of the window and add your DLL.  If you have just built the project containing the control the DLL should be located in the "bin" folder of that project.

I want to say many of the answers here were good but I felt these most helped and directly answered my questions and helped in showing how to add the control to my tools section.


I have since created the entire project from start to finish ....   Thanx all
