This third step shows how text can be formatted. With Text Control's text formatting properties, the complete layout of a document can be controlled.
tx.FormatSelection = true tx.FontSize = 17 tx.FontName = "Times New Roman" tx.SelText = "TX Text Control Step 3" & vbCrLf
This example alters the font name and size at the current input position and inserts a line of text. The new line is formatted with the previously specified attributes. You can also select a text fragment with the SelStart and SelLength properties and alter any attribute of a character or paragraph after inserting text. For a detailed overview of all properties that handle formatting attributes see Programming Categories - Character Formatting and Programming Categories - Paragraph Formatting.
