HTML WYSIWYG Control for Windows Form

Hi,

Any recommendations on a good HTML WYSIWYG control for Windows Form?
I am trying to do a Email Client and want features like create tables, change font color/face, etc.

And also, it has to be free.

If you're using .NET 2.0 I suppose you could look into using a webbrowser control. I'm pretty sure that you can make it editable! But I can't give you any details..

This seems to be a little like what you need though? http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/Attach.asp

Actually (I looked into it a bit) that thing is exactly what you need. Only thing is that you cannot (easily) insert tables with this method (the HtmlDocument.ExecCommand stuff). As far as I can tell you have to actually write some table html code to the document... (other people have had this same problem..)

REA_ANDREW,

Thanks.. Any idea how to add a font size and font color to the editor?

When you create an Instance of the editor in the WinForms all those properties should be exposed.  Have you tried looking at all of its properties in the properties window?

I vaguely remeber setting such a thing but cannot remeber now whether it was XStandard or FCKEditor in ASP.NET

It should be FCKEditor you are referring to.
XStandard looks more unfriendly.

I don't have the luxury of time to explore further.

to explore further WYSIWYG's or explore the functionality of each?

Explore and at least let it expose the font color, font family and font size.

FYI, I got my problem resolved from my link question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/C_Sharp/Q_22725292.html#19603099

From there, I add in my own "Insert Table" feature.
