I have a bit of code for showing the font dialog, I have tried many different things to try and solve this question before asking. This is for a windows form application in

I would like to add the function of only changing the selected text whilst the rest of the text in the rich Text Box remains the same.

Your help is very much appreciated. (I’m sorry for all the questions,
I am a dyslexic and sometimes it take a bit of time for the proverbial penny to drop).

What I have tried:

FontDialog1.ShowColor = True

FontDialog1.Font = EditBoxC.Font

If FontDialog1.ShowDialog <> Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel Then
    EditBoxC.Font = FontDialog1.Font

Given all your questions on the use of the RichTextBox, I would suggest going through the documentation in detail.

1 solution

They hide that stuff in the documentation on the RichTextBox control. See the SelectionFont property[^].

Someone, it seems, cares not for your answers. Maybe the idea of doing some work for themselves is irksome. :)
