    Rich Text Box - properties and details

    Can anyone please suggest a good URL (MSDN or otherwise) or a recommended reference book which describes in some detail the capabilities, properties and limitations of the Rich Text Box as used under VB6. I have numerous VB reference books, but it seems that they significantly neglect to describe the nature and use of the RTB.

    I have found the RTB to be of great use, but would like to know more about it.

    THank you Rhino Bull. I had found that MSDN article and it was useful, but did not go into the sort of detail I wanted. The article lists what a RTB can do, but not in any detail how to make it do it.

    Searching elsewhere I came across a tutorial on the subject which I have not yet read in full but which provides much more detail, and code.

    In that the RTB seems to be neglected by most VB6 reference books, I am attaching hereto as a .zip that tutorial which I found in the hope that it may be of use and interest to other forum members.

    I will leave this thread open for a while in case there are further comments or replies.

    Thanks RhinoBull. I did check that the RTB tutorial was available for distribution. It was available free and without restriction on Internet, clearly written by a chap who had encountered the lack of coverage of the RTB in most books and was determined to "plug the gap".

    Thanks also for the pointer to those samples by moeur at the codebank.

    Very useful.
