Rich Textbox Control That Allows Formatting

P: n/a
Is there an editable RTF textbox control which allows the user to apply
bold, italic, etc.? I tried the Microsoft Rich Textbox Control, but there
doesn't seem to be a way to allow the user to change the formatting while
typing text. Is there such a beast?

Thanks,

Neil

Alex the MS RTF control can work with Office 2003, you just have to
modify a registry setting. Here is a previous post of mine on this
issue. Oh yes, if I remember correctly, you have to create the Reg entry
with a value of 1.

It's a security issue. I cannot find an English KB article but here is a
post in french from a MS PSS empoyee with a detailed explanation and a
ref to a french KB article. I'll translate it for you using
Babelfish...sorry if there are any mistakes!

Hello, RichTextBox control comprises access
methods to the files (in particular LoadFile and SaveFile) which make
it potentially dangerous within the framework of a Web. application
For this Microsoft reason prevents its execution in Internet To
explore by using the method described in the base of Microsoft
knowledge (technical article 240797), by fixing the value of the entry
"Compatibility Flags" in the following under-key of the base of
register: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mi*crosoft\Internet
Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{3B7C8860-D78F-1*01B-B9B5-04021C009402}
http://support.microsoft.com/d*efaul...d=KB;FR;240797
Microsoft reinforced the safety of Microsoft Access in
the version 2003. One of the additional safety measures is that
Access 2003 holds account of the restrictions forced on Internet To
explore in the under-key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mi*crosoft\Internet
Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility an administrator of the Windows station
can modify the value of this entry "Compatibility Flags". But I
disadvise to you making it since this would weaken the safety offered
by Access 2003 and Internet To explore. I rather advise you to
give up format rtf with the profit of a more recent format:
HTML. You could then use, for example, control ActiveX
"WebBrowser control" to post the text formatted in HTML. Benoit
