Default values for Stephen Lebans' RTF2 control

P: n/a
I've just started using Stephen Lebans' RTF2 control in a database, linked
to a Memo field, and am finding it extremely useful (incidentally, in
ACC2002 I'm using the class and withevents rather than the ACC97
backward-compatible module).

I do have one question for Stephen or anyone else familiar with the control:
what is the best way to set a default value for new entries? I am interested
in doing so because I would like entries to start of with a consistent font
face and size (not the bold System font it defaults to), and possibly other
characteristics possible with RTF.

Ideally, one day, we'd be able to set such defaults as a property of the
control itself, at the time of form design, but I realize that would require
a lot of additional work in designing the Activex control. Failing that,
what have people done, or what do they suggest doing, to set a default
value?

I see three basic ways of achieving this: setting a default value in the
table design, setting one for the control, and creating code to insert a
value (either in the code behind the form or in the code for the class).

Has anyone set up a database that has default values of this sort?

Thanks,

Bruce Rusk

I am just trying out RTF2. I discovered that if you go to the design view for your access form and double click on the RTF2 control it will bring up a control panel in which you can set the defaults for the fonts.
