Thread: Rich Text Box

    I am displaying some information into a Rich Text Box (I need that to uses colors, font styles...).

    Even though I set the ScrollBars property to 3 - rtbBoth at design time, when a line goes beyond the right side of the box, it is clipped and continues on the next line. I need it to carry on beyond and I was expecting a scrollbar to show up at the bottom.

    Anyone knows what is going on ?

    Thanks for the help.

    I believe it's a bug in VB6, I've had the same.

    Hi FrancisC,

    In addition to changing the ScrollBars property to 3 - rtbBoth, you also have to supply a value for Right Margin, the property just above Scroll Bars, in order to get the horizontal scroll bar. The scroll bar doesn't appear unless the default value of 0 for this property is changed.

    All the best.
