    I am new to using telerik controls and need one question answered. Can someone please tell me how to programmatically retrieve the contents of the RichTextBox control as a simple string?

    Also ther appears to be an exception when you call SetText with an empty String.

    Hello Chi,

    First of all, I'd recommend you to upgrade to the latest Q2 SP1 release if you haven't already done so. The SetText method was deprecated and instead of it you can use the TxtFormatProvider.Import(string input) method. It does work with string.Empty scenario. Also it has a very handy method to export a document to a string. Here's a snippet on how to do that:
    string GetDocumentAsString(RadDocument document) {
        return new TxtFormatProvider().Export(document);
    I hope this answers your questions. Let us know if you have any other.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
