Stuff like this is quite difficult to do. If the RTF box doesn't support it (Can't remember if it can do things like that), then you really have 3 options:

1) Write a custom control (Or extend the current RTF control) - A lot of work. Don't try doing this if you are new to .Net. a custom control of this complexity will be quite a big project. I would suggest it would probably need to be fully owner drawn. If you do go down the custom control route, WPF tends to offer better and easier customisability (but it's still not easy to do something like this).

2) Look for an existing "editor" control. There are stacks of commercial editor controls around that offer features way beyond the standard winforms controls. Companies like Infragistics[^], DevExpress[^] etc. offer this kind of thing. There are loads more out there. (I think DevExpress even offer some of them for free). You can also try looking for open source projects that have editor controls, I'm sure they'll be a few around. You need to spend some time googling to find something that meets your needs. Email the companies and ask if they support what you want to do - some of these companies controls are very complex, so it may not immediately be obvious if you can do what you want.

3) I think it's possible to embed a MS-word "control" into your app. I'm not at my work PC right now, so I can't check, but I've done it with Visio in the past for displaying Visio documents in one of my apps. It might prove difficult to control/limit what the user can do, and it may be total overkill for what you are doing, but it's something to consider.

Personally, option 2 is probably the best.

Good luck.

Simon
