    I like to have the caret shown when the RichTextBox gets the focus, i.e., when tabbing into it. I use the following approach.

    Private Sub RadRichTextBox_GotFocus(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadRichTextBox.GotFocus

        Me.RadRichTextBox.Document.Insert("", RadRichTextBox.CurrentEditingStyle)

    End Sub

    While the caret size is smaller than usual it achieves my goal.

    Hello Arthur,

    You can use the GotFocus event to accomplish the desired behavior by using the following code snippet:

    void radRichTextBox1_GotFocus(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    I don't see a DocumentView" property in my RadRichTextbox, am I missing a namespace?
    I'm using silverlight but the way

    Hi Pablo,

    This forum concerns RadControls for WinForms, not RadControls for Silverlight. Please address your question in the appropriate forum in order to get adequate assistance:

    All the best,

    RadChart for WinForms is obsolete. Now what?
