Charlotte, NC, United States (June 28, 2011) - Text Control is proud to announce the immediate availability of TX Text Control Express - a free, enhanced Rich Text Box for VB.NET and C# that includes many of the features missing from the built-in .NET Framework component such as:

  • Effortless printing and print preview
  • Rulers, button and status bar
  • Ready to use dialog boxes
  • Page view

TX Text Control Express is the latest member of the TX Text Control family of word processing components. This entry-level edition is absolutely free of charge and can be deployed royalty-free. Technical support is offered at the same high level as the paid versions of TX Text Control.

Bjoern Meyer, Vice President of Text Control, stated:

We are very excited about our free edition. When browsing online user groups and forums about the RichTextBox that comes with .NET, you can feel the frustration of the developers. They are forced to deploy workarounds for simple tasks, such as printing. In such cases, the Express edition of TX Text Control is the perfect start.

Bjoern Meyer, Vice President of Text Control

He continued:

We want to widen our user-base to improve TX Text Control and to establish a common standard for rich text editing in .NET applications.

Bjoern Meyer, Vice President of Text Control
