The Windows Forms RichTextBox control has numerous options for formatting the text it displays. You can make the selected characters bold, underlined, or italic, using the SelectionFont property. You can also use this property to change the size and typeface of the selected characters. The SelectionColor property enables you to change the selected characters' color.
