Hello,
I'm currently developing a Chat Application in VB.NET which is similar to MSN Messenger. I need to know the control to use for the message area of the chat window in which the messages sent and recieved will be shown. I tried using the rich text box but it does not support hyperlinks and emoticons......so what control should i use? pls suggest

The easiest way would prolly be to use a WebBrowser object. :) Otherwise you're looking at a custom control.
