what's the best way to go about highlighting C# keywords in a rich text box? Changing the ForeColor of the rich text box changes all the text, not certain words so I was thinking that each time a word is typed it would be added to an ArrayList. I could then write the elements in the ArrayList one by one after after checking if it was a keyword or not and if so change the text color of that word. Actually come to think of it, that idea wouldn't work either because how could I change the color of each word individually. Not to mention being highly inefficent. Anyone got any better ideas?
// I mean something like this, notice how certain words are highlighted.

while (true)
    /* Do stuff. */

public bool f(int i, char c)
     // ...

     return true;
