    Is it possible to have a single line rich text box without showing scrollbars?

    I ideally want to use it for the user to enter a hyperlink and click on it to go to that web page.

    Hello Andez,

    Thank you for writing.

    This is possible but it is not recommended because if the text length exceeds the control length you will be unable to properly scroll and see the entire text:
    void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        radRichTextBox1.AcceptsReturn = true;
        radRichTextBox1.AutoScroll = false;
        radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.VScrollBar.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Hidden;
        radRichTextBox1.RichTextBoxElement.VScrollBar.RadPropertyChanging += VScrollBar_RadPropertyChanging;
    void VScrollBar_RadPropertyChanging(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.RadPropertyChangingEventArgs args)
        if (args.Property.Name == "Visibility")
            args.Cancel = true;

    Directly entering link in the text box will not insert it. To insert a hyperlink you can use the insert hyperlink method or show the insert hyperlink dialog:
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        radRichTextBox1.InsertHyperlink(new HyperlinkInfo() { NavigateUri = "" }, "Telerik");

    I hope this helps.
