    I'm new here, just trying to know about ASP.NET controls. I would like to
    know if there is any control in ASP.NET to present rich WinForm applications
    in the Web browser like Applet for Java.

    In my view, such feature would help companies protect their investment
    (time/cost/effort) by using same WinForm application to take advantages of
    web medium via web browser without any significant rework. This may require
    the .NET Runtime availability on the Client system if the Runtime provides
    such features, also browsers has to be compatible with such control.

    See if ClickOnce :
    fits your needs...

    As you said it requires the .NET runtime client side. The browser itself is
    just used for the deployment. The idea is just to deploy easily a "true"
    Windows Forms application client side using the browser...

    ASP.NET is designed to generate W3C compliant code to the client.
    Client side Java applets are not compliant with web standards. If a
    web application uses them (Java beans) they must be confined to the

    If it is possible to create a richtext control with JavaScript then
    that would be a different matter because the standards support it
