    Good day!

    Is it possible to map a Word content control to a section? I was hoping to be able to open a document with Word content controls inside of it, update the sections, and save the changes to the content controls? Or probably just map a section to a content control name/id?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Joe Buckle,

    Unfortunately RadRichTextBox does not support Word Content Controls yet. We will add this feature request to our to-do list, however I am not able to specify any specific timeline yet.
    Can you please also elaborate a bit more on the section / content control mapping? We will appreciate more info about this scenario to define the features you need better.

    All the best,

    Hi!

    In Word 2007, in a document, we are saving the data in each content control in a database. So I was wondering if there is a way I could open a document with content controls in the RadRichTextBox, update the data, then save it like we do in Word 2007. Is this possible, to map each content control in the original document to something in the RadRichTextBox? 

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Joe Buckle,

    Currently, importing and exporting from/to Word 2007 is done through the DocxFormatProvider and unfortunately it doesn't support content controls. We are considering this functionality, however I can't give you any specific details about availability date. One option is to implement your own format provider which supports content controls, but I'd say this is far from trivial.
    Get back to us if you have any further questions.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Joe Buckle,

    I am afraid the list of features for Q3 if pretty much filled up. However I will set a higher priority of this feature in our to-do list and hopefully we will soon be able to start working on it.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello Nagarjun,

    Import of content controls has not been implemented yet. There were features of higher priority on our to-do list, such as Tab stops, document protection and styles. We will consider it for Q1 2011, but I cannot engage with a timeline of when the feature will be available.

    Hi Evgenii,

    Content controls are not supported in RadDocument and at this point their implementation has not been scheduled.

    In RadDocument, you can have InlineUIContainers, which can contain different UI elements. You can find more information on their use in this article. Please, look through the documentation and let us know if you have any additional questions about their use.

    Hello Joanna,

    I'm afraid content controls are still not supported in RadRichTextBox and at this point I am unable to say when this might be implemented. I suggest you follow this item in our Feedback & Ideas portal to be notified about any progress on this.

    Hello Geoffrey,

    This feature is still not implemented nor scheduled for implementation. Thus, I cannot say when it might be available. The best I could suggest you is to subscribe to the feedback item, which Petya pointed out, in order to receive notifications about status changes on it.

    Hi Geoffrey,

    The API was not meant for such thorough extensibility, so I believe this is currently not possible. Depending on your scenario, you may use InlineUIContainers, but such customization would be specific to RadRichTextBox and you will lose compatibility with other document processing applications - i.e. export to/import from DOCX/RTF won't work.
