RichTextBox Class

Represents a Windows Forms RichTextBox that can be added to a Microsoft Office Excel worksheet.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Controls
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel (in microsoft.office.tools.excel.dll)

public class RichTextBox : RichTextBox, ISupportInitializeExtendedControl

The Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Controls.RichTextBox is different from a System.Windows.Forms.RichTextBox. The Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Controls.RichTextBox has additional members that enable it to be added to an Excel worksheet and that give it additional methods and properties.

Do not use the New constructor to create a new RichTextBox. Use the AddRichTextBox method to add a new RichTextBox to a worksheet.
