    I am trying to utilize the RadRichTextBox in Winforms for the purpose of having the integrated spell checker, but I am only in need of a 1-line text box.  I can't seem to find a way to remove the scroll bars when I do that.  Is there a way to do this?

    Then, I have figured out how to add a section to the RadRichTextBox.Document by using the .AddBefore(), but is there a way to actually remove the first section completely from the default Document that is created?

    Hello Doug,

    If you want just to use the spell checking feature, then the best option is to work with RadTextBoxControl. The following article from our online documentation describes how to spell check a textbox.

    If you still want to use RadRichTextBox, then you can hide all scrollbars by handling the RadPropertyChanging event. You should cancel the changing action when the editor tries to set the Visibility property to Visible. Consider the sample below:
    radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.VScrollBar.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
    radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.HScrollBar.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
    radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.VScrollBar.RadPropertyChanging += new RadPropertyChangingEventHandler(ScrollBar_RadPropertyChanging);
    radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.HScrollBar.RadPropertyChanging += new RadPropertyChangingEventHandler(ScrollBar_RadPropertyChanging);
    void ScrollBar_RadPropertyChanging(object sender, RadPropertyChangingEventArgs args)
        if (args.Property == RadElement.VisibilityProperty && (ElementVisibility)args.NewValue == ElementVisibility.Visible)
            args.Cancel = true;

    I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to ask If you have further questions.

    All the best,
