    Thanks Veselin Vasilev .

    Would it have SpellCheck feature?
    It will be nice if it supports Rich Text Format.
    To be more specific , a Property which can be used to Get or Set to RTF format (as String) , so that we can embed images also.

    regards,
    RS

    Hello Rejeesh,
    WPF version of RadRichTextBox will include all the features from the Silverlight version, including spell checking.
    As of support for RTF, it is in our development plans, and maybe we will manage to include it in 2011 Q1 version.
    When RTF becomes available, it will most probably use its own format provider and data provider classes. You can read more info about this mechanism for importing/exporting data here and here.

    Hello Bernard,

    Thank you for your interest in RadRichTextBox. 
    As it comes to the support of right-to-left typing, unfortunately, we cannot offer a specific timeline for it, as we have other features of higher priority planned for Q1 2011.
    The beta for RadRichTextBox for WPF is expected any day now.
    If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Hy,
    Is the internal model a FlowDocument or a new Model?
    I'll explain. Do you use object like Paragraph, Run?
    Best Regards

    Hi Bernard,

    We do not use MS FlowDocument internally. As you may know FlowDocument is actually not available in Silverlight 4. We have our own model for our flow documents (the same for Silverlight and WPF), which resembles the document structure of the MS FlowDocument. It includes similar document elements - Section, Paragraph, Table, TableRow, TableCell, Span, ImageInline and InlineUIContainer, but they are implemented from scratch and do not use the elements defined in the System.Windows.Documents assembly.

    We are also working on a couple of FormatProviders that can convert documents from telerik Document to WPF FlowDocument/Silverlight RichTextBox documents and vice versa. They should be ready for 2011.Q1 version, where also RadRichTextBox for WPF will be introduced for the first time.

    If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

    All the best,
    Iva

    Hello

    This is an old thread, I know, but I found it while searching for a light weight viewer for a RadDocument and one idea would be to display a MS FlowDocument until editing is needed and at that point switch to RadRichTextBox. This is an issue others also have pointed out, that performances suffers greatly if you have many RadRichTextBoxes on the screen (See this post). 

    The last response in this thread talks about a Telerik Document to WPF Flowdocument converter which should be ready for the 2011.Q1 release. Now in 2013 I don't see it among the FormatProviders so I'm wondering if it never got finished or if it was scrapped later on, or maybe I'm on the wrong track here?

    Thanks,
    Terje

    Hello Terje,
    Actually such provider was released - MsRichTextBoxXamlFormatProvider, located in Telerik.Windows.Docments.FormatProviders.MsRichTextBoxXaml assembly - which is capable of importing/exporting XAML content from/to system's RichTextBox. Note that the two models are not fully compatible, and some formatting could be lost during the conversion, so I would advice to test it and see if it fits your scenario.
