    We're using the RadRichTextBox in a WPF application to create and store documents in a proprietary XML format.  We're using a formatter to convert them back to XAML for editing but we would also like to display requested documents on the web as PDF images.  While we can render a PDF version at the time the document is saved using RadRichTextBox, we would rather avoid the duplicate storage and render them as PDF when the document is requested from the site.

    Is there a method for doing this type of conversion in a service?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Ted,

    We don't have such service, but maybe you could use the WPF assemblies related to RadRichTextBox to create one. The Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Pdf.dll exposes a format provider that allows to export a RadDocument instance to PDF, so you could implement the conversion between the XAML and PDF formats.

    Let me know if you have other questions.
