    Hello!
    I am trying to export to rtf some content using radeditor. I have some labels and a grid.
    i can export it with no problems, but when i open the rft on microsoft word i get the message that a table is damage and when i open it on wordpad, the content is empty.

    Can i export grid to rtf with radeditor??

    thanks

    Hi John,

    Hello John,

    RadEditor uses two different free libraries to provide Import to RTF and Export to RTF features.

    The first one used to provide RFT to HTML importation is available in this CodeProject's article: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/RtfConverter.aspx.
    The library used for HTML to RTF exportation is available here http://www.codeproject.com/KB/HTML/XHTML2RTF.aspx.
    Both libraries are written by different developers and they are not fully compatible with each other.

    For your convenience I prepared a list of know limitations of the Import and Export features of both libraries:

    RFT to HTML (Import)

    bold
    - supported..
    italic - supported
    underline - supported
    foreground and background colors - supported
    table elements - unsupported
    images- unsupported
    indentations - unsupported
    superscript and subscript - unsupported

    HTML to RTF (export)


    bold - supported.
    italic - supported
    underline - unsupported
    foreground and background colors - unsupported
    table elements - partially supported - table borders are not exported
    images- unsupported
    indentations - supported
    font family and size - unsupported
    superscript and subscript - unsupported

    The unsupported scenarios are hard for development and require more time for implementations and testing. Our development is concentrated currently on producing valid XHTML content and the import and export problems are logged with medium priority in our ToDo list. That is why we could not provide firm estimate for when the unsupported features will be available.

    Please note that good RTF import and export tools are very expensive. If you are currently unsatisfied with the offered by RadEditor RTF functionality, you could search in Internet for another free or paid RTF to HTML importation and HTML to RTF exportation tools and we will help you to integrate them with RadEditor.

    Best wishes,
    Rumen
