Inserting text in a RichTextBox at a particular location

1 New Member
hi pls help me out in inserting text into a richtextbox.

the situation is like this::

i want to insert a string say "hello" at a particular location in the rich textbox.
The particular location is given in the form of X and Y coordinates.
eg:: PutString("hell o",10,20)
i write a function that passes the string and x,y coordinates.
is that possible??
x,y coordinates will represent the location of the string in richtextbox.
any ideas.. pls help!!

Hi. This should be so easy, but I don't get it. Let say I have RichTextbox1 and I want to insert some text at the current insertion point, or at the beginning of selected text (if there is any). How is this done? Also, how do I delete the current selection? Thanks.

I have a RTF control on a form and want to insert text programmatically. I thought it would be easy but it does not turn out that way. Can someone refer me to an Internet article that covers this action. When I insert the text, the formatting for the other content of the control is lost. In summary, I want to add the current date and time to a RTF control while maintaining the existing appearance.

However, when the user changes the input data, a recalculation is made and a new report is generated. This resets the RichTextBox vertical scroll bar to the top. I would like to be able to read the position the scroll bar is moved to before recalculation....

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
