I have a single WPF System.Windows.Controls.Textbox and I'm wondering if there is a way to have parts of the text in different font colors.  My text consists of control characters and I'm trying to distinguish them from the remaining text string.  Can this be done with this control or any other similar Textbox control in WPF?

With a TextBox you're stuck with one color. You would have to use the RichTextBox (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.richtextbox.aspx) for that.

Take a look at this article that will help you do what you're trying to do:
