When the RichTextBox is empty upon start, the caret does not show when I click on the control.  However, when I type into the richtextbox, the text shows and the caret appears as well.  I tried setting the caretposition of the document in the constructor, but that doesn't work.  How do I make the caret show upon start?  

Below is the xaml of the usercontrol.

<UserControl x:Class="CommonControl.HtmlEditor"
    xmlns:telerikHtml="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Html;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Html"
    xmlns:telerikHtmlMain="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Html;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Documents"
    mc:Ignorable="d">
 
    <telerik:RadRichTextBox HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LayoutMode="Flow" x:Name="editor" AllowDrop="True" Drop="editor_Drop" ShowComments="False"
                            BorderBrush="Transparent" BorderThickness="0" MinWidth="536" IsSelectionMiniToolBarEnabled="False"
                            IsContextMenuEnabled="True" IsInHeaderFooterEditMode="False" DocumentPresentationChanged="EditorDocumentContentChanged"
                            MaxWidth="1024">
    </telerik:RadRichTextBox>
</UserControl>

Hi Bob,

This is a known issue for previous versions of RRTB. It has been fixed in 2011 Q3 SP1, so if you download this version of the Silverlight controls (2011.3.1220), the problem must be resolved.
However, if you want to maintain your version, there is walkaround by setting:

DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings="True"

to the rich text box. In this way the value of the FontFamily and FontSize properties of RadRichTextBox will be applied. More information on this property can be found here.

Kind regards,
