Getting started with the HtmlEditor is easy. Follow these steps:
1. Make sure you have Visual Studio 2005. Earlier versions will probably work, but you will need to tweak the project to get it to open.
3. Open the HtmlEditor project. The solution includes a demo project with some simple examples of use.
4. To add the control to your own applications, you need to add it as a component on the Visual Studio component Toolbox. To do so, first make sure you have compiled and run the HtmlEditor project. Next, start a new Windows Forms project or open an existing one. Right-click the Windows Forms section of the Toolbox and choose Add/Remove items. On the .Net Framework Components tab, click Browse. Select the file HtmlEditor.dll and click OK, then OK again to close the Add/Remove items dialog. The HtmlEditor now appears in your Toolbox and you can add it to a form.
5. When it comes to deployment, remember that the HtmlEditor has a dependency on Internet Explorer. A recent version of Internet Explorer must be installed - 6.0 or 7.0 is recommended. The HtmlEditor no longer has a dependency on the mshtml primary interop assembly.
