This is my first post here, normally I just come here to read since there is so much quality info on WPF on the site. Recently though I began working with the rich textbox in a WPF project. This honestly baffles me because it seems like the answer is so simple that Im just missing it.
I want to be able to open a window with a rich text box in it, click the bold button and begin typing in bold. Yet the only documentation regarding the RTB controls in WPF is how to make selected text bold. You cant throw a rock without hitting a blog or forum that explains or discusses this. Yet I cant find anywhere the C# that applies bold to all of the text. Donít some people actually prefer to first setup the font, wieght, style, etc before they start typing?
Aftter I read about RTB controls here and downloaded the kWordpad to test out, I actually had to open wordpad myself, click the bold button and start typing (just to see if I was losing my marbles). This is how the native word processors work, but none of the WPF apps containing a rich textbox that I have tested in the past week or so have this feature, but nobody seems to be bothered by this fact.
So what am I missing?
