     This mIRC-style text output window displays IRC formatted text in a scrollable picturebox and also allows for copying of the lines of text, as well as double clicking on nicknames (if AddNick is implemented), #channel names and URL links, just like mIRC. Another mIRC like feature, is the ability to load background images either stretched, tiled, centered or photo (top right corner). EventColor() array is used to set predetermined IRC color numbers for particular events such as Join, Part, Quit, Action, etc. This has taken me about a year to get working properly and more than likely has one bug, or two, but i hope someone finds it useful. This would be most useful, obviously in an IRC client. There is a reference included "strings.tlb" which is used for the word wrapping routine which must be copied to your windows/system32 folder. Have fun :) UPDATE: Fixed a few bugs. UPDATE 2: Added UTF-8 support and loading of part of a log file (useful for onjoin "reload logs" feature like mIRC) - also included a better demo project to show more of its features

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.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

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