I begun working on a simple text editor around an extended richtextbox control, trying to improve the existing example from this page: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/vb/Wor...ick&fr=1#xx0xx, when i realised that the FontDialog doesn't work properly. Most of the fonts don't work. It just slips back into the default textbox font defined in the properties, or to the previous font. This is the code that opens the FontDialog box:
Private Sub SelectFontToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SelectFontToolStripMenuItem.Click
If Not rtbDoc.SelectionFont Is Nothing Then
FontDialog1.Font = rtbDoc.SelectionFont
FontDialog1.Font = Nothing
FontDialog1.ShowApply = True
If FontDialog1.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
rtbDoc.SelectionFont = FontDialog1.Font
Font Broadway for example doesn't work, arial works, arial black works, batang works, bell mt doesn't work. I don't see the pattern.

It would be best if you could post a minimal yet complete example that reproduces the problem. I have not had any problems with setting the fontin a RTB....

But i did post the code in the first message. That code is ok i think. The entire solution source code is on that link in the first message. You can download the project and test it yourself if you've got time. It doesn't take long. And you will see that you can apply only a handful of fonts to the richtextbox, and the rest reverts back to the default or previous font. Thanks.
