Hide cursor in RichTextBox

P: n/a
Hello,

I want to hide cursor in textRichBox. Default the cursor blink if you
click on richTextBox and I want to disable this feature.

I need to make something like Adobe Reader, so textRichBox as readonly
but the text can be selected, etc.

Any idea?

Are you talking about the cursor (mouse pointer) or carat (keyboard insertion
point)?

Why don't you just set the control to ReadOnly?

Och, sorry my mistake, I mean carat.
If I set the control to ReadOnly, it doesn't solve my problem.

I don't really think it's possible to hide the flashing caret in a rich
text box. I remember asking the same question some years ago, about
hiding the caret in a Win32 rich edit, to no avail.

Still, perhaps you could try searching Google Groups; e.g.:
