Hi there,


I'm making a bible book app where I have listbox, richtextbox and search textbox.


I have som problem coding when the listbox text is chosen, It will show the listbox text + custom text in richtextbox.


I have done this:

private void btnAra_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        int index = 0;
        String temp = richTextBox1.Text;
            richTextBox1.Text = "";
        richTextBox1.Text = temp;

        while (index < richTextBox1.Text.LastIndexOf(txtAra.Text))
            richTextBox1.Find(txtAra.Text, index, richTextBox1.TextLength, RichTextBoxFinds.None);
            richTextBox1.SelectionBackColor = Color.Orange;
            index = richTextBox1.Text.IndexOf(txtAra.Text, index) + 1;

But since this is going to be a book app, I want the chosen listbox to show a text file in richtexbox and not only 2-3 sentences..

Any tip for what I can do?


Updated with this:


  private void listBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

            var str = listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();
            if (str == "    Yaratılış        Tevrat")
                richTextBox1.Text = str + "\t\r\n\nText here";
            else if (str == "    Mısır'dan Çıkış              (Yasa)")
                richTextBox1.Text = str + "\t\r\n\ncustom text 2";

I am not sure I understand, but if what you want is choose a file maybe it's better to use a folder browser dialog or a directory tree instead of a listbox (unless the amount of files fits).


So, what else? do you know how to to read a file into a rtb?

If you look at the page http://incil.info, trying to make this into an application. What I've made so far, is like this: https://www.dropbox....5/form.jpg?dl=0
