In other words, I'm trying to allow the user to format the look of the text before submitting it.

Thanks!

string value; 

        int start = TextBox1.Text.StartsWith("CURSOR POSITION");        
        int addOpeningTag = value.Insert(atIndexStartposition, "/<strong/>");

        int end = TextBox1.Text.EndsWith("CURSOR POSITION");
        int addEndingTag = value.Insert(atIndexEndposition, "/<//strong/>");

        value = TextBox1.Text;
        Label1.Text = value;  // put this value in db with storedprocedure 

Open in new window

HI, Not sure if you are still looking for an answer here, but you might want to consider TinyMCE to use for a rich text box alternative in asp.net.

This is a free Rich Text Editor you can use in any platform.
