    I have a relatively simple use for the RichTextBox. I'm using it to display log messages in an application.

    I will have two types of messages: Information and Errors. I would like to display the error string in red while the information in black.

    How can I change the font color as it is being inserted to the box?

    Also, can the font and size be changed at design time? I have the standard font and size (8.25) but it looks much bigger than a standard RadTextBox. Also there seems to be some sort of padding above it as there is a large space between lines (something like a line height in HTML).

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Sacha,

    Thank you for writing.

    The Font setting cannot be introduced at design time. However, you can set the desired styles while inserting the text. Please refer to the "Insert text in RadDocument" snippet of this help article for a sample implementation.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
