This link comes courtesy of Ken Cox, it appears there’s a new Rich Text Editor written in C# and its open source. I think that’s great but I really wish that either (a) Microsoft would make a standard control for this or (b) the development community would decide on one control and work on expanding the functionality of that control
It just seems like a waste of time for several groups to be putting effort into doing the same thing. As great as this new control is it has less than half the functionality of FreeTextBox which has been all but abandoned by its creator. Just think of how much more we could all have if the group that made this new control didn’t have to start from scratch.
I do hope this control gets some traction and that they work on a plug in framework of some kind so others can easily add functionality to it. That's' the type of thing that could really cement this control as the Rich Text Control of choice among .net developers.
