    Cool Inserting Text to the beginning of a RichTextBox maintaining colors

    I have the following code:

    Code:
    txtStatusLog.SelectionStart = 0
    txtStatusLog.SelectionLength = 0
    txtStatusLog.SelectedText = ("ERROR: " & MyUpdate & "(" & Now & ")" & vbCrLf)
    txtStatusLog.SelectionColor = Color.Red
    Only problem is that when a different color is selected, the color either never appears or changes the entire text box that color. Any ideas on how to correct this?

    Looks like it works if I change the order a bit:

    Code:
    txtStatusLog.SelectionStart = 0
    txtStatusLog.SelectionLength = 0
    txtStatusLog.SelectionColor = Color.Red
    txtStatusLog.SelectedText = ("ERROR: " & MyUpdate & "(" & Now & ")" & vbCrLf)
