Hi,
im using a rich text box called "main", a button called "bold".

when my program is running i want to be able to type in the rich text box, then when i highlight some text and press the bold button it changes the selected text to bold
how is this done?

im using vb express 2005

found it:


Dim bfont As New Font(Main.Font, FontStyle.Bold)
Main.SelectionFont = bfont

If it hasn't changed too much since VB6, you'll just set the .SelBold property.
