Say if there was a textbox on a webpage and I had the ID to it, what code would I use to get the contens of it then put in into a RichTextBox, in VB.net  the ID is resultsBox if you needed it.

What? How about I put the contens of the RichTextBox to string then do RichTextBox1.Text = stringname

What would the code be for that?

I thought you just wanted to put the contents of a regular text box into a rich text box.  If that is the case, the assignmenet I showed would suffice.  Are you trying to do something different?  Please give more details.

If I understand you right, is this what you want ?

Dim Str As String = RichTextBox1.Text.ToString
SimpleTextBox1.Text = Str

getElementById is a Javascript (client-side) function.  Are you writing client-side and/or server-side code?
