Rich Text Box Change Font Color
I have a sub that reads in and changes the selcolor of a rich text box.
The code executes fine and if i run the code and then write in the rich text box the text is the color set by the selcolor but if i click on a button i have set up that simply enters some text into the rich text box the text color stays black (its original color)
what do i need to do to get the text to change to the set color when it is entered like it does when its written in.
How To Change Leading Of A Font For Display In Rich Text
I am trying to reduce the leading in a font that is used in a rich text box.
The richtextbox1.SelCharOffset set to -1, -23 does not do the check when the line wraps. The idea is, given at least 2 lines,:
I would like to get the Line2 characters as close to the Line1 characters (or even overlap them) in a rich text box.

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.

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.

Change Font On Only Marked Text

Im using a toolbar buttonto change my font this is my code: cdlToolbarDemo.Flags = cdlCFBoth

Change Font Of Text In Clipboard
How can I change the font of a string passed to the clipboard object with Clipboard.Settext (sString) ?
I build up a long string in a string variable, then prompt a message to the user :
"The text is copied to the clipboard. Please paste it to the body field of when the e-mail application opens"
Then I open the default e-mail using a mailto: string with ShellExecute command.
As I do not know the default mailing prog of the user's computer in advance, I do not have access to its object model.
This way I guarantee passing my applications output to the default mail, although not vey elegant. Theonly problem with this method is that I need the passed text to be in a fixed size font (such as Corier New) to ensure displaying columns formed in the string properly aligned

Change Font In Text Box And Entire Form Changes
OK, my first post to this forum and I am feeling really dumb. I have a program with several forms and on one of them I added a new text box. I set the font name and size and make the box visible when needed. The problem is that other items on the form, like a FlexGrid also change to the new font. It doesn't happen on other forms in the program. Can someone suggest what I might have missed?
Cheers and thanks in advance

Rich Text Box - Change Insertation Point Color, Or Hiding It
Anyone know of an API call that will allow me to change the color of the insertation point of a Rich Text Box?
I am using code to mimic a hyperlink, by checking if the text the user clicked on is blue and underlined, so i need to keep the rtb enabled and unlocked so it can respond to a selchange event when the user clicks on it.
i would like to hide the insertation point (possibly by setting it's color equal to the background of the rtb), so the rtb will look more like a webpage without a blinking insertation point.
Change Font Size Based On Length Of Text
i want it so that when someone enters something into a text box and push a button the font size of the text is decreased until the whole string is in the textbox and not going outside it.
so say someone enters into a text box "hello my name is blah blah blah"
not all of it will be visible because it goes beyond the length of the text box. i want the program to decrease the size of the text "hello my name is blah blah blah" until it fits into the text box. anyone help me out here ?

CommonDialog Box Font Box - Font Doesn't Change
I'm using the ShowFont feature of CommonDialog in VB 6.
I have a Rich text box called RTB1
.DialogTitle = "Font" 'set the dialog title
.Flags = cdlCFBoth
RTB1.SelFontName = comDlg1.FontName
RTB1.SelFontSize = comDlg1.FontSize
RTB1.SelBold = comDlg1.FontBold
RTB1.SelItalic = comDlg1.FontItalic
RTB1.SelStrikeThru = comDlg1.FontStrikethru
RTB1.SelUnderline = comDlg1.FontUnderline
When I select a font from the box and hit ok - I don't see the font change in the Rich Text Box (for e.g, the font size) .. I step through the code and the .SetFontName , .SelFontSize etc properties of the Rich Text box are getting set from comDlg1 ... but there're no visible changes to the font..
Appreciate any help - thanks.

Rich TextBox Font ???
Can anyone help me, I don't know how to use a rich text box. I only want to display text in different fonts, but I have no clue how???
Change Font With Printer.Font.Name
I am using:
Printer.Font.Name = "Courier"
Printer.Font.Size = 8
Because txtData contains columns of text and/or numbers, I do not want to use a variable width font.
Both the Form and Textbox fonts are set to Courier.
But the code above does not actually change the font to Courier on the printer.
I know this is an old problem, but I can't find the solution on Tek-Tips or anywhere on the net.
I have seen that some programmers use Doevents after setting the new font, or use Printer.Print "" before printing the data.
Neither of these work for me.
In another program I am using Printer.Font.Name = "QuickType Mono"
and that works. But it doesn't work in this program.
Can someone explain this?
Rich Textbox Font Color
I made a chat window for my chat program that when it loads up, it's
rich textbox color alway reverts back to black.
What the chat form does is when you click on the send button, the
message is sent and then the form is unloaded. I have public variables
in place to hold all the font properties. When the user sends a message
back, the chat form or message box loads back up, displaying the new
message. In the form load event, the font properties are reloaded with
the values already held in the public font variables and everything works
except for the font color.
My problem is that even if i have my font color set to red, when the form
loads back up, the rich textbox font color always goes back to black.
I've heard and experienced myself that the rich textbox has flaws in it.
For instance, if the font color is set to red and i change the font bold
property, the font color goes back to black.
I was just wondering if there is a way to subclass the rich textbox to
get it's font color property instead of the Selcolor property.
I noticed the rich textbox has font.bold, font.italic, font.underline and
font.size properties but not font.color. I wonder why?
