Rich Text Box (Or Regular) Different Colored Lines?

Jun 5, 2011

I've out an output rich text box called TbxOutput, and I have many different tbxoutput.appendtext("") methods in my program.I don't really know much about how to set rich text box colors, and what I specifically need is for a simple line of code that i can plug in before the tbxoutput.appendtext("" + vbnewline) methods to make that particular line output text of a different color.

For example, when my program normally outputs messages it does it in black, and i want it to remain that way by default. But when it outputs an error message, I want that particular message

Find / Replace Multiple Text In Rich Textbox?

Apr 12, 2012

I am trying to open up a text file that contains some text. I have 3 text boxes on my screen. What I need to figure out is how to replace multiple words (1 in each textbox) with text it finds in the txt file.

I can do this by using the single find / replace feature but I'm trying to be able to fill out the 3 textboxes and then click my find / replace button to have my Regex find each predefined word and replace it with what is in the text boxes.

Here is my code to get the find / replace one word at time feature. I've tinkered with this to just add more variables to my Regex but it doesn't seem to work.

Find And Replace Specific Lines In A Text File

Aug 4, 2011

I have a program that will read a text file and put information from the text file into multiple text boxes. What I am trying to do now is be able to change the values in the textboxes and be able to write the specifc changes back to the text file. One way I though of doing that was using a while loop and copy the lines of the text file to another text file, then when it finds the line that has the specific change from the text box, make the change and continue writing the line until it reaches the end of the file. Then I was going to copy the file and overwrite the original, escientally making the change to the new file. Right now it will make the new file but will just make a blank text file. I think the problem is in the while loop statement but I am not sure. Here is the code below:

Private Sub submitButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles submitButton.Click
Dim trackname As String

Scroll Two Lines Respectively Located Within Different Rich Textboxes At Same Time?

Dec 25, 2010

I have code that when text fills a main rich textbox beyond the size of its dimensions - the vertical scroll appears and simultaneously vertical scrolls the main rtb and a second subordinate textbox.

If I have a couple lines of text and I scroll down a line(row) of text using the cursor I wish the subordinate rtb respond in the same manner i.e. scrolling down the same line(row) and obviously the lines of text underneath.

Find A Word In Coding And Replace It With Three Lines?

Jun 9, 2012

I know this is a very noob question but would it be possible to find a word in my coding and replace it with three lines?


So far I can only replace it with "ex1.Message) Finally Application.exit" but it's going to take me forever to go through my coding to change it. I'm not sure what character I could use to start a new line in between "ex1.Message)" and "Finally" and "Application.exit"

Use Find/Replace To Replace Arbitrary Text Per Line?

Dec 9, 2011

I have a bunch of object variables which are all initialised in their declarations such that:

Private _myObject As New ThisObject("SomeString")

where ThisObject is one of a number of object types, but all are initialised using a string.

I would like to use the Visual Studio Find/Replace dialog box to search for "As New" then replace everything from "As New" to the first set of speech marks with some text such that:


My original example could be solved using other methods. This example is more representative of the actual problem:

Private _myObjectA As New ThisObjectA("SomeString")
Private _myObjectLongName As New ThisObjectLongName("SomeString")

Get A Bunch Of Lines From A Text File (they Will Be Filenames Eventually) Which Are Split By New Lines And Puts Each One Into An Array?

Jun 22, 2010

I have written a simple script to get a bunch of lines from a text file (they will be filenames eventually) which are split by new lines and puts each one into an array..

Dim ary() As String
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
If My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists("C:MenuFiles.txt") Then


The only thing I can do for now is either use the substring function to remove the first character from all array values after 0 but I don't like that because it's messy and what if the split "works" as I want it to one one of the lines and knocks of the first character when I don't want it to.

VS 2010 - Rich Text Box - Getting User Text In The Text Changed Event

Jan 20, 2011

I'm Making a Simple syntax highlighter and I'm Doing the highlighting in the text Changed event of a RTB and for obvious reasons I can't re highlight the whole document each time someone presses a key so i highlight one line each time the text changes. But this creates a Problem. If someone pastes code into the RichTextBox It only highlights the last Line. So is there a way to get if the user typed the text in with his keyboard or pasted it from the clipboard in the text Changed event?

One Sub Procedure / Change Text Color In Rich Text Box / Without Button Handler?

Oct 8, 2010

everyone! I've been at this for a while, and I'm not sure how this issue can be resolved:I'm working on a project in VB.Net, and I have a form with a rich text box. I have a groupbox with 4 radio buttons inside that are intended to change the font color of the text. Coincidentally, I have to repeat this same functionality for a 2nd set of radio buttons that would change the text font family.

At any rate what I've only been able to do is the following to successfully change the font color of whatever text I highlight in the rich text box:

Private Sub rbtnBlack_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles rbtnBlack.CheckedChanged
rtbxTextEditor.SelectionColor = Color.Black
End Sub
Private Sub rbtnRed_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles rbtnRed.CheckedChanged


Is there a way that I could write a sub (I'm assuming I would use a sub, since I don't think I need to return anything, thus eliminating the use of a function) that would handle the action of changing the selected text color in the rich text box without having to use a separate sub for each radio button? Mind you, per my teacher's specs, she doesn't use a button handler for any of this.

Read Lines From Text File 1 And Delete Those Lines From Text File 2?

Sep 15, 2009

I have a text file containing lines of data (File 1).  I need to delete all the lines in another text file (File 2), which are found in file 1.So I could read file 2 line by line.  And then once the line has been read, read file 1 line by line to search for a match.  But that's going to be painfully slow.Or I could read file 2 into memory.  And then read file 1 line by line and REPLACE the lines in file 2 with nothing, therefore deleting them.  File 2 could be 100 mb, so I'm not sure about reading it all into memory.

System Root And Printing Text To A Rich Text Box?

VS 2010 Transparent/Background On Rich Text Box Or Text Box?

Mar 17, 2012

I've been wanting to create a look like the attached jpeg Ive been looking around for a few hours for a solution to make text boxes transparent or have a background image. I've found a few projects on this form and elsewhere which include transparent text boxes, but every time I try to use it the way I need to--with the text box over a picture box--there are always various rendering errors. Most of the time, the text box is transparent if its just placed on the form (not over any other controls). But when I place them over other controls (like picture boxes), the 'transparent background' always take on the color of the form background.

This is one that I was trying to use. I found a few others around, but they all had the same render errors more or less.[URL]...I figured transparency or background images would have been supported natively. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe I missed something in my searches. I didn't really see anything which adds background images in text boxes (rich or otherwise). At this point, I'd just like anything that works, so it doesn't really need to have transparency--just a simple background image would be great.

Search For Text BackColor In A Rich Text Box?

Nov 23, 2009

I'm trying to make a program that can do some statistics on text in a rich text box. I'd like to count the number of instances where text appears with a certain back color, for example where text is "highlighted" with yellow.

There seems to be no function to get the backcolor of text at a specific index, you can only get the backcolor of text which is selected, like this:

Dim backColor As Color
backColor = RichTextBox.SelectionBackColor

This means, by applying this nasty trick, I would have to manually select every character in the rich text box before I can find the backcolor:

For i = 0 To RichTextBox.Text.Length
RichTextBox.Select(i, 1)
If RichTextBox.SelectionBackColor = Color.Yellow Then
yellows = yellows + 1
End If

However, this takes a very long time, because the program has to select and deselect every character.

What options are there to speed up the process? Disabling the paint event?
