    Hello vijayan,

    Please find attached a demo, illustrating how you can create a document in code-behind. It also shows how you can export the document to PDF.
    The InlineUIContainers, however, are not exported and the button, which you can see and click if you load the document in RadRichTextBox, will not be exported.
    There should be no problem for you to implement that in your ViewModel class.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    All the best,

    Hi vijayan,

    If you use ImageInline, the picture will also be exported using the format provider. I have modified the previous demo to include a picture. The picture is included in the project, but it can be taken from a database, as long as you can provide a Stream that contains it.
    Note, that as of now we only support inline images, that is you cannot make the text flow on the sides of the picture. However you can use tables to achieve your scenario.

    All the best,

    {

     

     

    var result = from myPlayers in Players

     

     

     

    where myPlayers.Title.Equals (originalValue.Substring (1,originalValue.Length-2))

    Hi vijayan,

    You can replace the document just by invoking:

    this.radRichTextBox.Document = Document;

    However, it seems to me that your scenario is practically mail merge. This feature is on our to-do list for next year, but what you can do currently is to use the newly introduced Find functionality as shown in the demo in this forum thread.
    Basically, you perform a search for a string and then, you can do as you please with the results. The method in the demo selects all occurrences of the word.
    private void buttonFind_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.Clear();
     
        DocumentTextSearch search = new DocumentTextSearch(this.radRichTextBox.Document);
        foreach (var textRange in search.FindAll(this.textBox.Text))
        {
            this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.AddSelectionStart(textRange.StartPosition);
            this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.AddSelectionEnd(textRange.EndPosition);
        }          
    }

    If you add
    this.radRichTextBox.Insert(sometext);
     after setting the selection end, the text will be replaced.

    Kind regards,
    Iva

    Hi vijayan,

    Please, ask Telerik Reporting questions in the Telerik Reporting Forum. I am sure the Reporting guys will help you out. Just describe your problem in detail, i.e. what services you use, what technology (SL, WPF, etc) and what the exact problem is and they will help.

    Hi vijayan,

    What exception are you getting? If you open a support ticket and send over a sample project, we may be able to help you further.
    Just to be on the safe side, you can view only one RadDocument in a RadRichTextBox. The sample project involved only one RadRichTextBox and one RadDocument. No matter how many sections, paragraphs, spans, etc. you add, the controls that come after the rich text box will appear properly.

    If you, however, have more than one RadDocuments which you want to show in different RadRichTextBox-es, you would have to implement some custom logic of yours. One approach would be to put RadRichTextBox in a DataTemplate for some ItemsControl, e.g. a ListBox, and then set the DataContext and ItemsSource of the ListBox, as shown in the demo in this forum thread (the post from October 6th). 
    Another option would be to add them to the logical tree of some control, which is already created like this:

    foreach(RadDocument doc in documents)
    {
       RadRichTextBox rrtb = new RadRichTextBox();
       rrtb.Document = doc;
       layoutRoot.Children.Add(rrtb);
    }
    Let us know if that doesn't answer your question.

    All the best,

    How to set the MaxLength property of the input area of the combobox? i had tried in this following example
    http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radcombobox-howto-set-max-length-input-area.html

    i created class name as "EditableRadCombo" one project files. after that i access in this project  in my Xaml page like this..
    Create namespace for that project  

     

    xmlns

     

     

    :Editable="clr-namespace:eAnalyze.Common"

    after that am calling

     

     

     

     

    <telerik:RadComboBox x:Name="EventType" Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="1" Width="345" Height="22" SelectedIndex="0" Text="{Binding EventType}" VerticalAlignment="Center"

    Hi vijayan,

    The property should be set like this:

    <telerik:RadComboBox  IsEditable="True" Editable:EditableRadCombo.MaxLength="10" ...>

    I've attached a simple example to demonstrate the approach.

    Hi,
    I have opened a docx document in RadRichtextbox and looking for a way to add another document on top of this current document.
    Is there a way to dynamically append one document to another opened document. Both documents are docx type.

    Hi Matt,

    We are sorry for the delay, but we were busy with the new Q1 release.
    You can add second document in the beginning of the existing document by creating document fragment, as follows:

    private void buttonLoadSecondDocument_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        OpenFileDialog openFileDialog = new OpenFileDialog();
        if (openFileDialog.ShowDialog() == true)
        {
            using (Stream stream = openFileDialog.File.OpenRead())
            {
                RadDocument document2 = new DocxFormatProvider().Import(stream);
                document2.Selection.SelectAll();
     
                this.radRichTextBox.Document.InsertFragment(document2.Selection.CopySelectedDocumentElements());
            }
        }
    }
    InsertFragment has another overload that accepts DocumentPosition, so you can insert the second document anywhere in the first one.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Hi matt,

         hey you have to add this two dll.

    using

     

     

    Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.OpenXml.Docx;

     

    using

     

     

    Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Pdf;

    this is method return document which contain imported docx .. just you pass local path of ms word file then it will return.
    private RadDocument GetAllElementFromWord(string localPath)

     

     

    {

     

    RadDocument CommonDocument =

     

    new RadDocument();

     

     

     

     

     

    using (Stream stream = Application.GetResourceStream(GetResourceUri(localPath)).Stream)

     

     

    {

     

    CommonDocument.LayoutMode = DocumentLayoutMode.Flow;

     

    CommonDocument =

     

     

    new DocxFormatProvider().Import(stream);

     

     

    }

     

     

     

     

    return CommonDocument;

     

     

    }

    this method check whether correct word document file or not and return resource file. before run application make sure whether that ms word file is resource or not. if you want resource file right click ms word file property make resource file..

     

     

    private

     

     

     

    Uri GetResourceUri(string resource)

     

     

    {

     

     

     

     

    AssemblyName assemblyName = new AssemblyName(this.GetType().Assembly.FullName);

     

     

     

     

     

    string resourcePath = "/" + assemblyName.Name + ";component/" + resource;

     

     

    Uri resourceUri =

     

     

    new Uri(resourcePath, UriKind.Relative);

     

     

     

     

     

    return resourceUri;

     

     

    }

    Hello Vijayan,

    Thank you for taking part in this discussion. However, I think that Matt has something else in mind.
    @Matt: PDF import is currently not supported. This is indeed not very clear in the article about data providers where the focus is on data binding. However, the fact that only PDF export is available is specifically accented in this article about import and export. We will make sure to update the other article, so that no more misunderstandings occur.
    PDF import is on our to-do list, but has not been scheduled yet and will not be implemented for Q2.

    Hi Iva,

    I have an issue in the attached code snippet insertcustomcontrol.zip. What I want is I want to do the load and export functionality without UI. I mean with out actual control is created I have to achieve the functionality.
    So I have commented the below code
    MainPage.XAML file

     

     

     

    <!--<telerik:RadRichTextBox Name="editor" Grid.Row="1" >

     

    <telerik:RadRichTextBox.Document>

    <telerik:RadDocument LayoutMode="Paged" />

    </telerik:RadRichTextBox.Document>

    </telerik:RadRichTextBox>-->

    and declared the control like below..

     

     

     

    public partial class MainPage : UserControl

     

     

     

     

    {

     

     

     

    private RadRichTextBox editor;

     

     

     

    private RadDocument document;
    ...
    and modified the event as below...

     

     

     

    private void buttonLoadDocumentInEditor_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

     

    {

    editor =

     

    new RadRichTextBox();

     

     

     

    this.editor.Document = document;

     

    }

    so...when I build the code it is fine..but I am getting runtime exception when trying to export the doc to "docx" format. I am not having PDF related Dlls as I am using a 2010 version of Telerik.
    attached the Error Screen Shot.

    Please let me know where the issue is???

    Hi Udaybhaskar,

    We generally do not have a practice to support old versions except in cases where the issue is well known and there is an easy workaround for it. In your case, it seems that either the document is invalid or there is a bug in the DocxFormatProvider. We advise you to try importing and exporting the document with the latest version (2011 Q2 - 2011.2 712) and see if the problems persist. If so, we'll be glad to investigate further and fix any issues present.

    Hi Nagarjun,

    In order to use DocxFormatProvider, you also need to reference the Telerik.Windows.Zip dll, which can be found in the same folder where you have installed or extracted the zip with the other assemblies. You can find a list of all required assembly references here.
    Note that you must reference the same version of all assemblies and cannot have different versions of Telerik.Windows.Documents and Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.OpenXml for example.

    I am in the wrong forum. I don't know if my post applies to Silverlight or not, I am using WinForms. I was led here by a Google search for WinForms RTB, because Telerik Forum Search is horrible. I asked support to delete my post for this reason, but they did not.

    I was replying to a post from Boby on March 17 2011 and was referring to the SelectAll() method being used to retrieve a Fragment. There is no documentation in WinForms about how to get a DocumentFragment from the Document.

    I ended up using the standard Microsoft RichTextBox anyways; it works better, has better documentation and is easier to use.
