    How to pass hyperlink into richtextbox

    In the following code I have an OpenFile() Function which opens a fileDialogBox, I then select my file (which will be a PDF) and return it back. My question is....When I get the filename and path, is there a way to take this path and put it into a textbox or richtextbox as a hyperlink? I want the user to be able to view the file once it has been selected and displayed on the form. But when I tried the following:
    Code:
    RichTextBox1.InsertLink("linktext", "linkurl.html")
    It said the "insertLink" was not a member of richtextbox. But i see examples of it all over the net.

    Here is the code I have so far just passing the string to the textbox and richtextbox, I just need it to be passed as a hyperlink to the file location.

    Code:
    Private Sub btnOpenFile_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAttachDoc.Click
    
         'declare a string to the filename
         Dim strFileNameAndPath As String = Open File()
    
         If (strFileNameAndPath = "") Then
              MsgBox("You did not select a file!")
         Else
              'Pass filename to textbox and richtextbox for testing
              tbAttachment.Text = (System.IO.Path.GetFileName(strFileNameAndPath))
              tbAttachment.Text = (System.IO.Path.GetFileName(strFileNameAndPath))
         End If
    End Sub

    Re: How to pass hyperlink into richtextbox

    I appreciate your willingness to help, but I was unable to open up any of the forms and vb code you sent. I mean, after all....This really is just for looks and to allow the user to double check what they have posted in a file, not really needed. If I can't find anything else on it in the next day or so, i'll probably just forget it. I was looking into LinkLabel's, but then I ran into the problem of "getting" the filepath and filename from my filedialogbox over to the click function of the label. Oh well
