    vb Code:
    1. Private Sub RichTextBox1_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RichTextBox1.SelectionChanged
    2.      If RichTextBox1.SelectionLength > 0 Then
    3.          RichTextBox1.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow
    4.      Else
    5.          RichTextBox1.Cursor = Cursors.IBeam
    6.      End If
    7. End Sub

    thanks but it didn't help.

    please let me try to explain again
    when i select text in the richtextbox and then try to move it elsewhere the cursor become cursor.no which mean the operation is prohibited.

    (A shot in the dark) Try handling the DragDrop events (basically all events that contain Drag in the filename). It should be straightforward if such events exist (I'm not sure if they exist, that's why it's a shot in the dark )
    Please rate helpful ppl's posts. It's the best 'thank you' you can give
