Is there anyway, I can have my richtextbox display this character("•") with it showing the box like shape(when the richtextbox doesnt know how to read the character)?

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

Well first of all what character is that?

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

? It is one of those press a combo of button of keys

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

hmm try

char c = Convert.ToChar("•");
RTB.Text += c;
Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

where shall I drop that code?

Im using this code to get text, that has the "•"

void readrss()
        {
            try
            {
                richTextBox1.Text = string.Empty;
                StreamReader x = new StreamReader(WebRequest.Create("http://www.cheatingzone.net/News.txt").GetResponse().GetResponseStream());
                richTextBox1.Text += x.ReadLine();
                x.Close();
            }
            catch { }
            Thread.CurrentThread.Abort();

I could solve this for you but this is where programming comes into play.

This is where your logic comes into play.

Show me your thought process. give me your psuedo code.

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

How would I make it replace a character? All that does is add one, I need to replace a character?

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

hmm, Indexof(), Replace, and Substring() are your friend.

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

Would you be able to give me an example of replacing < with •

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

Well,

int Marker = yourstring.IndexOf('<');
char c = Convert.ToChar("•");
if (Marker != -1)
     yourstring = yourstring.Substring(0, Marker-1) + c + yourstring.SubString(Marker+1, yourstring.Length-Marker);

Not sure about the -1 or +1 test it out.

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

There is a error for SubString

EDIT: correction, its suppose to be Substring. fixed,.

EDIT 2: The < is still there, what should I do ?

Re: RichTextBox Not Reading Character 80 80

Comon I gave you the clues.

Not sure about the -1 or +1 test it out.

Here

label1.Text = label1.Text.Substring(0, Marker ) + c + label1.Text.Substring(Marker+1, label1.Text.Length - Marker-1);
