Adding large amounts of text to a readonly TextBox

What is the best way to add several pages of text to a readonly TextBox? The
text does not change and was created in a Word rtf document but could as
easly be put in a ASCII text file. Can this be done using a resource or
something? Can TextBoxes be attached to data sources other than database
objects?

Thanks,

Dennis

Dennis,

You could put it into a resource, but ultimately, you have to get the
contents out of the resource into a string to add to the text. In order to
append large amounts of text, you will want to use the AppendText method on
the TextBox (or RichTextBox) class. It is meant to add large amounts of
text in an efficient manner.

Hope this helps.

Nicholas:

I had remembered talking to someone who mentioned using resouces to hold
literals, etc.

Now maybe you could point me in the right direction on how to do that. Is
there something in the MSDN docs that explains how to do this and then how
to get the text out after?

Thanks,

Dennis
