  10. VS 2019 Re: RichTextBox - add columns to existing table?

    OK I said not to use the base RichtextBox, because it doesn't handle a lot of the RTF very well. The good news is every Windows PC already has a much better alternative that you can use: "RICH EDIT"...
  15. VS 2019 Re: RichTextBox - add columns to existing table?

    Yes it is possible. Below is some code I used to do way back in 2010 when I was just starting with .Net, so it doesn't use newer technologies like Regex or Linq and such, which could probably be used...

  29. Re: call Me.timer1.start using a variable for the number 1

    Yes you could use arrays. Yes in my sample I hard coded the numbers but you can use a variable to call it as an array or list which is what the OP asked to begin with.
