Many times while creating Custom SharePoint Form using ASP.net you need RichTextBox.
In SharePoint Controls there is a InputFormTextBox control that can be used as a RichTextBox. It control give same functionality and user interface as in SharePoint.
Take a look.



1. Add following tag (If you not added before) to Register the SharePoint DLL in your custom page or user control.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="SharePoint" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>

2. Add InputFormTextBox Control tag on the Page.
<SharePoint:InputFormTextBox runat="server" ID="TxtBody" ValidationGroup="CreateCase" Rows="8" Columns="140" RichText="true" RichTextMode="FullHtml" AllowHyperlink="true" TextMode="MultiLine" />
