Using rich text box for chat?


Recommended Posts

so... im trying to get colored chatlines instead of the boring black on white, i tried lots of shit, but it just doesnt work xd

    Public Sub AddText2(ByVal Msg As String, ByVal Color As Long)

        With frmMainGame.txtChat2
            .SelectionColor = Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromOle(QBColor(Color))
            .SelectionColor = Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromOle(QBColor(Color))
            .AppendText(Msg & vbNewLine)
        End With

    End Sub


    Public Sub AddText2(ByVal Msg As String, ByVal Color As Long)
        Dim s As String
        Dim C As Integer

        s = vbNewLine & Msg
        C = frmMainGame.txtChat2.SelectionStart
        frmMainGame.txtChat2.SelectionStart = Len(frmMainGame.txtChat2.Text)
        frmMainGame.txtChat2.SelectionColor = Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromOle(QBColor(Color))
        frmMainGame.txtChat2.SelectedText = s
        frmMainGame.txtChat2.SelectionStart = Len(frmMainGame.txtChat2.Text) - 1

    End Sub


both subs do nothing at all, stuff gets processed fine in the sub, but nothing shows >.<

Here is some code translated from C# from a school project I did. Not sure if it will help. Also what is Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromOle??? Never seen nor used it before...

Dim length As Integer = richTextBox.TextLength ' at end of text
richTextBox.SelectionStart = length
richTextBox.SelectionLength = mystring.Length
richTextBox.SelectionColor = Color.Red


Though I have no idea if it will work in vb.net as it was meant to be C#...
