I have a form that has 5 RichTextboxes on it, that I would like to concatinate into a final main.RichTextBox  how can this be done?

so far I have the following that will not work

 main.SelectionStart = Len(main.Text)

        emailbody1.SelectionStart = Len(emailbody1.Text)

        emailbody2.SelectionStart = Len(emailbody2.Text)

        emailbody3.SelectionStart = Len(emailbody3.Text)

        emailbody4.SelectionStart = Len(emailbody4.Text)

        emailbody5.SelectionStart = Len(emailbody5.Text)

        main.SelectedRtf = emailbody1.Rtf &
                                       emailbody2.Rtf &
                                       emailbody3.Rtf &
                                       emailbody4.Rtf &
                                       emailbody5.Rtf

jppinto,

That was the first thing that I coded assuming that it would work and compiled it that way, and it even works without any errors.  But it drops all of the
emailbody1, 2, 3, 4, 5 formatting when it populates my Main.RichTextBox

main.SelectedRtf.Multiline = false

main.SelectedRtf = emailbody1.Rtf
 main.SelectedRtf = emailbody2.Rtf
 main.SelectedRtf = emailbody3.Rtf

main.SelectedRtf.Multiline = true
