    We have implemented your RadRichTextbox with it's Mail Merge capabilities to create a labeling module with much success. Combined with the RibbonUI it is an excellent tool but there seems to be ​a feature missing. Is it possible to create a floating "Text Box" inside a RadRichTextBox? ​We need functionality just like MS Word Text Box with resizing, wrapping, borders, etc. Thank you for your advice.

    Hi Jon,

    The content controls are not supported by RadRichTextBox and we have this request already logged in our backlog. You could vote for the implementation of this feature and track its progress by subscribing to the related public item in the feedback portal.

    Thank you for your quick response Tanya! I guess I'm confused then. I thought that is what the InlineUIContainer was for? Please explain. Isn't a content control also a UIElement? 

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Hello Jon,

    The InlineUIContainer element could wrap any type of UIElement objects, but it has some limitations. This type of containers cannot be moved to other position in the document, they are not copyable, editable nor resizable.

    Due to the fact that UIElement is a specific for WPF concept, the InlineUIContainers are partially exported to some formats while other do not support them at all. More information on this matter you could find in the InlineUIContiner article.

    I hope this makes things clear.

    I foted for the textbox feature on your feedback home page too, but once again here in the forum:

    We need this feature as soon as possible too!!!
    Telerik RadRichTextBox seems to be the right tool for us and we would like to replace our current text editor control (TxTextControl) with the Telerik RadRichTextBox, but we use MS word textboxes in our templates for different aspects. So it's a pitty and a show stopper for us that this feature is missing! Please can you discuss this with your decission makers, to come up with this feature as soon as possible.
