"We are very excited about our free edition," said Bjoern Meyer, vice president of Text Control. "When browsing online user groups and forums about the RichTextBox that comes with .NET, you can feel the frustration of the developers. They are forced to deploy workarounds for simple tasks, such as printing. In such cases, the Express edition of TX Text Control is the perfect start," Meyer said.

TX Text Control Express is an entry-level version of the TX Text Control component and is also royalty free. You can find the TX Text Control Express download and more information on the TX Text Control Express microsite.
