    Hello Guys,

    We have a need to create some templates to store and retrieve information. I was wondering if Telerik Reporting or any other Telerik controls can support the features we are looking for.

    Basically, there are some documents that needs to be stored in the database and retrieved upon request. Right now, when the user uploads the document, it would be stored in database and when requested will open up in MS Word. If the users have to make changes to that document, they need to retrieve it, make changes and then re-upload it.

    However, the users now want us to provide some templates to create the document. When retrieved, the entire document should open up in a browser and they should have the ability to make changes to it and upload from the browser itself. Initially, I thought of providing a bunch of Rich Text boxes for them to create and edit, but that's a painful process. Is there any easy way of doing it using Telerik Controls??

    The sample template looks like this :

    • Content Page for displaying the contents in the document. Similar to Index in a book.
    • Objective Section : Can run into multiple pages
    • Few tables to store the users information, contact list etc.,

    The whole thing should mimic microsoft word look and feel although it's not mandatory...

    Any ideas???

    Hi Preetham,

    You can use RadEditor as a web WYSIWYG editor to read, edit and store HTML templates in a database. You can see the following demo for more information: Save in Database.

    RadEditor is a web editor which can work and export HTML/XHTML content. If you need to store the content in MS Word doc / docx format then you should use some third party control that will convert the HTML to DOC format.

    We are currently working on export to RTF but it is currently not so enhanced and has limitations. You can test it in this demo: Export to RTF.

    Best regards,
    the Telerik team
