How do I combine font styles in Visual Basic

I am working on a Visual Basic 2008 application where I am reading the contents of various RTBs and then consolidating them in another.

In this RTB I have to put some text in bold, some in regular and some in (say) bold and underlined or bold and italics. I can't figure out how to combine the styles.

Can someone please help?

(I'm still finding my way round VB after years working in VC)

Not sure exactly what you're asking for...

For example, if you wanted to make everything in the RichTextBox Bolded, Underlined and Italicized then you would do:

    RichTextBox1.Font = New Font(RichTextBox1.Font, FontStyle.Bold Or FontStyle.Italic Or FontStyle.Underline)

That is exactly what I wanted it to do. Thank you.
