Rich Text Box

I am coding a simple web site and wanting to pull in a text file to a text box but have it recognized html tags like <b> for bold, etc and display it correctly.

Is there a control that I need to use on the ASP.net form. I am using VB .net for my backend.

It's small amount of code to pull the text file:

CODE -->

Dim sr As New StreamReader("impmsg.txt")
        Dim line As String
        line = sr.ReadToEnd()
        txtimp.Text = line 

this will allow me to simply update a text file and not have to update code. But I really want to be able to do HTML display.

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.


RE: Rich Text Box

You will need a 3rd party control to do this. We use Telerik RadEditor.
