Hi,

I have a winforms application that I want to add a Rich Textbox to. I am new to XML and hope the following is possible. Can I open a XML file in a Textbox (Rich TextBox) after I formatted the XML with my XSL file? If I make changes to that opened file can I update the XML file? How?

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks
