RichTextbox???? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    have something funny going on... I have two forms, both with richtextboxes on them.  On one form I cannot copy and paste, but on the other form I can.  

    What am I missing?

  • Hi

    Possibly the properties of each RTB are different in some way. To check this, just delete the RTB that you can't copy/paste from and copy/paste the good one to replace the one deleted and try running with that - maybe both will act the same.

  • Did this and it worked. so let me to think about the form properties. The main form is a mdi app and the only real difference I see here is the mdi form uses a MainMenuStrip, that should not negate the basic shortcut keys?

  • there is nothing funny. It is normal. A form is not an executable and only the active form gets messages from the system. 

    Therefore is always written here to avoid it and use tabpages instead (or modal forms)
