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

Public Class Form1

        Me.RichTextBox1.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText("C:\TEMP\note.xml")
 
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub Save_Button_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Save_Button.Click
        My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText("C:\TEMP\note.xml", Me.RichTextBox1.Text, False)
    End Sub
