    Hello, I know a bit of C++ mostly doing .dll work, haven't really messed around with MFC. I can do VB Visual windows apps. I'd rather stick with VB just because I'm better at using that visually, but if its c++ thats fine. Anyhow.

    I've needed a custom article creator (manual, just an interface) with a couple of keyword options etc. Here's the hangup. Is there a library or some "common" source code that is used for text editors? (for free)?

    Something like this I suppose. Just need Bold, Insert Link, Bullets. Just basic stuff:

    Code:

    Are some good source codes that are commonly used for just the editor part? Honestly, I'm getting a bit lost here, I see a couple example codes but they are WAY basic.

    I'm making something like Web Content Studio and kind of stuck. Are a lot of those types of programs done in .net and that?

    Pretty much need something like this for my base:

    Code:

    Anyway, any guidance as to how to go about getting this started would be appreciate.

    Well, I tried doing this with a regular richbox and programming the controls I need. Only thing is I'm stuck on converting the formatting to html formatting. eg adding the <br> and <b> to the stuff.
