Hello,

This is my DataTemplate:-

<DataTemplate x:Key="ItemTemplateArticles">
            <Grid Background="White">
                <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                    <RowDefinition/>
                    <RowDefinition Height="Auto" MinHeight="26"/>
                </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                <telerik:RadRichTextBox x:Name="richArticle" Width="840" Height="100">
                    <telerik:RadRichTextBox.Resources>
                        <telerikXaml:XamlDataProvider x:Key="xamlDataProvider"  RichTextBox="{Binding ElementName=richArticle}" Xaml="{Binding ArticleContent}"  />
                    </telerik:RadRichTextBox.Resources>
                </telerik:RadRichTextBox>
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1" d:LayoutOverrides="Height" Margin="0,3" HorizontalAlignment="Right">
                    <HyperlinkButton x:Name="hypEdit" Content="Edit" Margin="0" d:LayoutOverrides="Width"/>
                    <HyperlinkButton x:Name="hypRemove" Content="Remove" Margin="3,0,0,0"/>
                </StackPanel>
            </Grid>
        </DataTemplate>

Why can't I see the content in RadRichTextbox? The ArticleContent is a field in my entity. Sample string returned from the database for this field is :-

<t:RadDocument xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:t="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Documents.Model;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Documents" version="1.0" DefaultPageLayoutSettings="800,1140" LayoutMode="Flow" PageViewMargin="0,0" ParagraphDefaultSpacingAfter="0" SectionDefaultPageMargin="6,6,6,6">
  <t:Section>
    <t:Paragraph Background="#00FFFFFF" SpacingAfter="0">
      <t:Span Text="test test test....hello world is this working????" />
    </t:Paragraph>
  </t:Section>
</t:RadDocument>

Can you find any bug in the code? I can see the Edit and Remove hyperlinkbutton in listbox but can't see radrichtextbox's content. Any help?

Hi Ankit,
The DataContext property of the elements added to resources is not properly updated by the runtime when their parent's DataContext is changed. To work around this, you should add the xamlDataProvider to the visual tree (it hasn't visual presentation) like this:
<DataTemplate x:Key="ItemTemplateArticles">
    <Grid Background="White">
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition/>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" MinHeight="26"/>
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <telerikXaml:XamlDataProvider x:Name="xamlDataProvider"  RichTextBox="{Binding ElementName=richArticle}" Xaml="{Binding ArticleContent}"  />
        <telerik:RadRichTextBox x:Name="richArticle" Width="840" Height="100"/>
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1" d:LayoutOverrides="Height" Margin="0,3" HorizontalAlignment="Right">
            <HyperlinkButton x:Name="hypEdit" Content="Edit" Margin="0" d:LayoutOverrides="Width"/>
            <HyperlinkButton x:Name="hypRemove" Content="Remove" Margin="3,0,0,0"/>
        </StackPanel>
    </Grid>
</DataTemplate>

All the best,

Hi,

I don't know what you are telling but if I just set the Mode to TwoWay in my DataTemplate it worked!
