Dear Experts,
I would like to use standard WPF RichTextBox control in my VB.NET application (WinForms).
The particular need for that is the embedded spell checking in WPF RichTextBox that is missing in WinForms control.
What would be the steps to perform in order to get it done?
Thanks in advance.

as an alternative you can use a MS Word object:

Thanks Guys for your replies.
The Word object is too ugly and troublesome to use, IMO.
Armoghan: I've already got to step where i have the hosted RichTextBox in my WinForms application, but now I can not figure out how do I interact with this control and in particular, how do I get the text from this RichTextBox to my WinForms application.
