2. Run-Time: It is a little bit trickier than the above method. In this method, you can set the size of the RichTextBox control programmatically with the help of given syntax:

    // Adding this control to the form
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Windows.Forms;
namespace WindowsFormsApp51 {
public partial class Form1 : Form {
    public Form1()
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        // Creating and setting the
        // properties of the label
        Label lb = new Label();
        lb.Location = new Point(251, 70);
        lb.Text = "Enter Introduction";
        // Adding this label in the form
        // Creating and setting the
        // properties of RichTextBox
        RichTextBox rbox = new RichTextBox();
        rbox.Location = new Point(236, 97);
        rbox.Size = new Size(278, 115);
        rbox.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle;
        rbox.ForeColor = Color.Green;
