richTextBox1.Rtf = @"{\rtf1\ansi This text is in \b bold\b0, " +
@"this is in \i italics\i0, " +
@"and this is \ul underlined\ul0.}";

For VB the actual string is the same

Also look at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Text_Format

There is an example where the font is specified.

ps.  Rtf format AFAIK isn't going to be further developed, it seems like HTML formats are replacing it.

>>Where do I add  this code?

eg. FormLoad event, the rtf textbox needs to have been created when you specify the formatted text.  Note you need to use the Rtf property not the Text property.  The Rtf displays the formatted text according to the string, the Text property just treats it as a string without displaying any formatting.

New line is \r\n
Picture - I don't know offhand.  What you could do is open winword, put a picture in then save the document as rtf.  Inspect the file you saved with notepad (which does not format the file in the editor window).
