Remarks

In the overtype mode, typing new characters replaces any existing characters to the right side of the insertion point.

Setting the OvertypeAllowed to false disables using the Insert key to control the overtype mode. The property has no effect if the overtype mode is enabled in code (i.e, if the RichEditControl.Overtype or RichEditControl.Overtype property is set to true).
