    Right - there is no Full justification in a textbox, unfortunately. You could use a RichTextBox for this, but there are some issues when printing with these.

    Stephen Lebans has a demo about this:

    This includes an ActiveX control that can be used and distributed with your application (if need be). I personally use the Total Access Memo control ( but for the money I'd try Lebans first.

    The lebans link is to an ActiveX control.  You use instead of a standard textbox/label.

    This worked perfect for English report, however, when I used it to display Arabic characters it did not work? Any ideas? I changed the font to different Arabic fonts and it still would not work.

    Any help is much appreciated.
