Can we draw graphics (lines) inside textBox or RitchTextBox.

i.e. we have text inside a RitchTextBox and we want to draw a line between two of the words (selected in text box)

You cannot draw on RichTextBox, but you can add an image through a clipboard.

Please see my past answer:
how to open word file with images and bullets in a rich text box in desktop application.[^].

However, this is so awkward, intrusive (why modifying a Clipboard?) and weak, that I would not recommend to bother.

As to TextBox — just forget it. It would be much easier to make a totally custom control and add some text editing functionality to it. :-)

No. It's not. And owner drawing a textbox is a living hell, so you can't even try that.

Totally agree about TextBox, but as to the RichTextBox, it's easy to insert an image, as I recently found out and tested -- please see my answer.

However, if you tell me that dealing with this in practice is just stupid, I'll readily agree.
