We all drop and use Rich Text Boxes control in our VB apps. It is a rich control (hence the name RichTextBox), with many options to format text. However, all options have to be used through coding in the background.

I have also worked with RTBs in several different applications, so I wrote this small extended control for the RichTextBox that displays a toolbar on top, with some common options that the user can perform. One cool option that I added is the spell check option.


So instead of dropping the RichTextBox in your form, drop the Extended RichTextBox :)


This my first code submission on CodeProject.com... finally! After getting valuable help from this site for years, and planning to give back for a while, finally I posted a small but hopefully useful little Extension to a great control.
