    Excuse me if this is a very obvious question - I'm a beginner!

    If I have a text file of several thousand characters, what's the best way of displaying it on the screen. Is there a control to use so that it looks like notepad, with scroll bars to scroll up and down the text?

    Many thanks for any help :)

    Would a multiline text box work for your application?

    You could also place a label (with your text) on a panel, and use a scrollbar to move the panel up and down.

    I find it helpful to know the goal or intended use of the program - what are you trying to accomplish?

    Thanks. The multiline textbox was what I was looking for! :sign0188:
