Saving text from new richTextBox

Hi! I'm having trouble creating a save funktion. How can I save the
contens of a new richTextBox that is created from an "external" class
file? The open funktion looks like this:
public void openFile()
OpenFileDialog openFileDialog1 = new OpenFileDialog();
openFileDialog1.Title = "Select a Text File";

if (openFileDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
StreamReader sr = new
string title =
TabPage myTabPage = new TabPage(title);
int index = tabControl1.TabPages.IndexOf(myTabPage);

//Add the RichTextBox to the tabPage.
NumberedTextBox.NumberedTextBoxUC textBox = new

this.textBox.richTextBox1 = new

// Load the contents of the file into the RichTextBox.
textBox.richTextBox1.LoadFile(openFileDialog1.File Name,

// Active tabPage is the new tabPage.
this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = myTabPage;


So the file i want to save is the loaded contens of
textBox.richTextBox1. The save funktion i made(doesn't work) looks like

private void saveFile()

// Create a SaveFileDialog to request a path and file name
to save to.
SaveFileDialog saveFile1 = new SaveFileDialog();

// Initialize the SaveFileDialog to specify the extension
for the file.
saveFile1.FileName = tabControl1.SelectedTab.Text;
saveFile1.DefaultExt = "*.pon";
saveFile1.Filter = "Point (*.pon)|*.pon|Luna

// Determine if the user selected a file name from the
if (saveFile1.ShowDialog() ==
System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK &&
saveFile1.FileName.Length > 0)
// Save the contents of the RichTextBox into the file.
this.boxen.richTextBox1.SaveFile(saveFile1.FileNam e,
