How can I set the highlight color in a Richtextbox ?

I would like to be to highlight identical words in a Richtextbox - just as you can in the VS editor.

TIA Patrick using VB 2010

Looks like you need something like this
if one puts the cursor (clicks mouse) on a word in RTB the same word in the entire content should get highlighted. If thats what you want you can get the word under the cursor and use the function in the code here

and instead of the line
rtb.SelColor = lColor
Use
rtb.SelectionBackColor = lColor
this will give you real highlight effect.
