richtextbox -> formatting text problem

1 New Member

I want to use a richtextbox for logging status messages. I have three kind of message types and want to use different formatting for them.

My problem is, I change the color, add the text and the added text is shown in another color. I scroll to the end and want to add the next status line using appendtext. But now the previous line lost its formatting..... .
I want to keep the formatting… Do you have a solution? BTW I am using managed C++….

Here the code:
richtextbox->SelectionSta rt = richtextbox->Text->Length - 1;
richtextbox->SelectionCol or = System::Drawing ::Color::Blue;
richtextbox->SelectedText = text;
richtextbox->ScrollToCaret( );

I tried your code because of a scrolling problem I'm having. It seems that if you have the -1 from
richTextBox1->SelectionSta rt = richTextBox1->Text->Length -1;
it changes the color back to default black for me. If I take out the -1 than my color stays red which it's suppose to be. Although when I tried the font and the font size that didn't seem to matter if the -1 was there or not.

BTW do u know how to scroll to the next line as soon as something is entered without typing it in the richtextbox yourself. My functions find out info and display it but it doesn't scroll down along with every new entry. It only scrolls down if I'm typing into the richtextbox directly.

Don't set selection start.
All you need to do is set the colors/format/whatever then add the text.

Using a Richtextbox I use EM_SETZOOM to set a zoom factor. If I set it to 2 the image on the screen increase but not exactly by 2. I've coded a ruler above the Richtextbox which does scale by the correct amount. Could it be that the Richtextbox uses GDI while Dotnet uses GDI+ ? Can anyone shed any light at all on this?

I would like to load a file to the .Rtf property of a RichTextBox, and then set the containing form (if possible, depending on screen resolution) to the smallest width that will not cause the horizontal scrollbar to appear. Now the RichTextBox must know what width will cause the horizontal scrollbar to disappear because, after all, the scrollbar does disappear if you make it wide enough (the RichTextBox is docked to the form.) Any idea...

For testing purpose I wanted to see if it would start the string from the quotation. str =...
