    Unhappy Any ways to make a text container like this?

    I am working on windows form programming with C++. Now I want to have a text container.
    Several requirements are noted:

    - it can display TAB as separations just like those in MS Word.
    - it can have a transparent background
    - it can have multi-line text

    The following features are NOT needed:
    - Input by users.( Just show some defined text. No user input needed )
    - Scrolling.

    Any ideas are welcomed!

    How about a Notepad? (MFC CEditView/CEdit derived class - just set it as ReadOnly to prevent user input)
    Or CRichEditView/CRichEditCtrl

    I am using a "Windows Form Application" project in VS2005 and I do not know how to use your suggested tool....

    P.S. If Transparent Background is not OK, allowing for Background Image can also satisfy my needs.

    Then you have asked it in the wrong Forum.
    Try Managed C++ and C++/CLI
