I have 2 buttons, a font combobox and a richtextbox. I want to increase the font size every time button1 is clicked. Just like in Microsoft Word. I tried with the following code:
RichTextBox1.SelectionFont = New Font(ComboBox1.Text,+2)

But it doesn't work.

What do you mean by "VB" here? Is anything selected?

Solution 1

The question show lack of understanding of the very basics. First, +2 does not increase anything. This is merely an immediate contact, same as 2. First, did you pay attention for the property name: SelectionFont. Did you really wanted to increase the font in selection; or do you want to do it with the whole text? If nothing is selected, nothing can happen.

I don't see any sense in any advice except just one: you could stop developing of any UI and learn very basics of programming. Using, say, console applications and doing the simplest exercises to understand how basic things work: variables, methods, method parameters, classes and their properties: fields, properties and methods. Then — basics of OOP, interfaces, delegates and delegate instance and so on. Without all this stuff, doing any UI development is nearly useless, just a waste of time.
