This is really complexe, and i can understand if noone can help me, but i will still ask. i am trying to get my richtextbox to change certion text to a certion color. I.E. when they type then it will change that block of text to a color. all this to happen with the push of a button. i know who change the entire richtextbox color, but just part of it? that is what is confuseing me. so if you guys could tell me how to get therichtextbox to pick out a certion word () and that would be great. thanks.
