Applying Font Properties Between Two Rich Text Boxes

Detecting The Current Font And Font Size On Various Lines In A Rich Text Box.
I have written an editor that uses a rich text box as the main text area.
The editor allows the user to select a font and font size on the toolbar.
My question is, how does one get the combo box text (for both the font and font size) to display the font or font size for the current line of the current character location?
Meaning, if I were to type in two lines, the first line being Arial 12pt, and the second line being Tahoma 14pt, how would I get the program to display the font and font size in the combo boxes?
I know about SelFont, SelStart and such, but I am not selecting any text. I am merely moving the cursor up or down and need to be able to display the font and font size for where the cursor currently is.
Anyone have any ideas?
I thank you in advance.
Detecting Font And Font Size On Various Lines In A Rich Text Box.
I have written a basic editor that uses fonts and such, however when I select a different line (while entering text into the text area of the rich text box), it doesn't display the font or font size for that particular location.
Does anyone have any ideas where I can look to solve this problem?
I thank you in advance for any information you may be able to share with me.

Rich Text Boxes
How do you add text to an embedded object in code? Currently what I'm doing is loading an excel file into a Rich Text Box control as an OLE and would like to know how to add text to this OLE in code. This is the code I'm using to load the file:
Private Sub Form_Load()
* * * rtbTest.OLEObjects.Add , , "Z:Excel quote and salesSales Order Form.xlt"
Or would it be simpler to to save the text directly into the excel file from within VB. And if so, how is this done?
Thanks a lot,

Rich Text Boxes
Hey all, I have been programming in VB for about 1 1/2 months now and I have got a question. I have heard a lot of you Novices to Experts talk about Rich Text Boxes. What are they and what is the difference between them and normal text boxes?
Help With Rich Text Boxes!!!!!!
Ok, i have a problem. I changed the text box in my program from a standard text box to a rich text box. The way the program is set up, when the form loads it automatically opens a text document and loads it into the text box. Now that i have changed it to a rich text box, the program is crashing, saying input past end of file. Here's the code for when the form loads:
Dim lngCharacters As Long 'Open log file for input so it can be loaded into the text 'field. Open "G:COMMONAOPSA-Ops Incidents ReportLOGSIncident_Report.rtf" For Input As #1 txtLogComments.TextRTF = Input(LOF(1), 1) lngCharacters = LOF(1) / 8 lblCharacters.Caption = lngCharacters & " Words Loaded" Close #1
Can anyone help me fix this? It worked just fine when it was a standard text box, but the file gets larger everyday since mostly everyone in my department uses the program. Also, since i changed it to a rich text box, will it affect how it saves too? Here's the code for saving to the file:
'Open text file so it can be written to Open "G:COMMONAOPSA-Ops Incidents ReportLOGSIncident_Report.rtf" For Append As #1 'A-Ops Incidents ReportLOGSIncident Report.txt Print #1, strDateTimeStamp Print #1, "Server: " & strServer Print #1, "Issues: " & strIssue & ", " & strAlert Print #1, "Response: " & strResponse Print #1, "User: " & strName Print #1, "Comments: " & strComments Print #1, Print #1, "----------------------------------------------------------------------" Print #1, Close #1 'Close text file

Private Sub cmdAddText_Click()rtfTesting.Text = txtToAdd & vbCrLf & rtfTesting.TextrtfTesting.SelStart = 0rtfTesting.SelLength = Len(txtToAdd)rtfTesting.SelColor = vbRedEnd Sub

Rich Text Boxes
I have 2 rich text boxes one named richChat (where chat messages are displayed) and one called richSend (the message you are sending)
I am currently just testing it and copying the text from Send to Chat and having problems with formatting.
richChat.Text = richChat.Text + "Test User: " & richSend.Text
This works however the formatting I put on in richSend is no longer formatted in richChat
I'm gonna give you an example so you can write the code for the example I have given
I want Test User: to display in blue in richChat and lets say i formatted the richSend to be red.
If you dont understand what I mean let me know coz I'm not sure if i have explained very well. If you do thanks and hope to hear how to do this shortly

SendMessage API With Rich Text Boxes
The program is not one in the IDE, i am useing the FindWindow and FindWindowEx to get to the textbox
I am trying to get the text from an application, all formated like it is shown in the window, and format it my way, and then send it back.
Ive been messing around with the sendmessage, but all i can retrieve and format is just plain text, with no formating.
Is there a constant or something to use for this?
right now i am useing WM_GETTEXT and WM_SETTEXT, but as i said, i need the formating of the text. I tried the WM_COPY, but i couldnt get that to work.
Any help appriciated.
Arrgghh - Where Have My Rich Text Boxes Gone!
I've just loaded our office database into VB6 for a minor adjustment and ALL the rich text boxes have turned into picture boxes !!!
What went wrong ??
All my backups load in the same way - RTBs have turned into Picture Boxes, so the problem must be with the VB6 environment!
What can I do - re-install VB6?
Anyone know how or why this has happened?

Last Question About Rich Text Boxes
Well, after about 30 minutes more of debate I figured out my first questions but now I can't get the other part I need and it's pissing me off. Anyway, here's the deal: I have a rich textbox called "txtHistory". I want to know how to set different font colors. I know it starts like this:
But what kind of code do I use to set the color? Can I use HTML (ie: #000000) or do I have to use something else. If you could just give me some examples for colors like black, red, yellow, maroon, light blue, or anything it would be greatly appreciated. I just need to see how to do it. Thanks,

00h, Strings, And Rich Text Boxes
I’m working on this program in vb6 where I am loading a DLL into a rich text box and replacing certain strings inside the DLL with 00h. All the functions work fine and everything, but when I try to replace with a string of “chr(0)” it puts absolutely nothing, and when I try a string of a bunch of “vbNull”s, I get 01h. "&H0" doesnt seem to work either. How can I do this?
(Here’s some sample code if you need it)
Call findandreplace("whatevergoeshere", rtb1, String(16, Chr(0)))
Call findandreplace("blahblah", rtb1, String(8, &H0))
Sub findandreplace(needle As String, haystack As RichTextBox, replacement As String)
' Set the options
goptions = 0
haystack.SelStart = 0
haystack.SelLength = 0
' Set the counter to 0
gCount = 0
If haystack.Find(needle, haystack.SelStart + haystack.SelLength, , goptions) = -1 Then
' No more matches
If gCount = 0 Then
' First time round, no matches found
MsgBox "Unable to find '" & needle & "' in specified range"
' Matches found
MsgBox "The specified region has been searched. " & gCount & _
" replacements have been made"
' Increment replace count
gCount = gCount + 1
' Replace the selected text with the replace text
haystack.SelText = replacement
