     This article describes an easy approach to building a simple word processor around an extended version of the Rich Text Box (RTB) control; Microsoft has made available an extended version of the RTB control that greatly eases the requirements for printing the control’s text or RTF content. This article and the sample application will use this extended version of the RTF control to demonstrate the following word processor related functions: •Opening Text, RTF, HTML, or other text files into a RTB control •Saving Text, RTF, HTML, or other text files from an RTB control •Implementation of the Page Setup dialog control •Implementation of the Print Preview dialog control •Implementation of the Print dialog control •Setting font properties on selected text or RTF within the RTB control •Searching for and highlighting text contained within the RTB control •Searching for and replacing text contained within the RTB control •Adding Indentation to sections of an RTB’s content •Adding Bullets to sections of an RTB’s content •Implementing Undo/Redo within an RTB •Implementing Select All, Cut, Copy, and Paste in an RTB control •Embedding Images into an RTB control •Setting page and font colors •Implementing Alignment options in an RTB control

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
